In a world where millions of new songs are being released every year, how do you cut through the noise? Not only that, but how do you write songs that consistently shift culture, build God’s Kingdom, and bring Him the greatest glory? It’s time to get real and admit that you can’t change the world without having life-changing encounters with God first.
As a Christian songwriter, you never sit down to an empty page. At all times you have a testimony of victory, loaded with power: a song waiting to be written. As you encounter the glory of God, He transforms you from glory to glory.
When you write songs from the transforming encounters you’ve had with God, you inspire belief and curiosity in the world, creating an environment in which your audience can encounter Jesus personally. After all, that’s what changed your life. Trust that God will use it to change theirs.
Inhale, the first book in A Living Hallelujah series, is a refreshing and encouraging call to every Christian songwriter to experience freedom and power in the creative process, inviting you to step into the fullness of your identity, purpose, creativity, authority, responsibility, and resilience that can only be found in Christ. The time is now to breathe in His presence, be courageous, and write songs that rise from the ground of authentic testimony — your life unfolding as A Living Hallelujah.
“During my many years as a music publisher of Christian music, I had the opportunity and joy of working alongside Stephen Duncan at both Integrity Music and Centricity Music. He shares a vision for purity and potency in the content we deliver to the body of Christ and to the world. This is a man with vision to see the kingdom of God expand throughout the earth, and he’s doing something about it. Stephen and Ginger have put this wonderful book together as a tool to guide you into a deeper relationship with the One we write and sing about. Where the Lord takes you in your special times of infilling is His surprise and blessing. Enjoy it. Breathe Him in deeply. And then exhale something beautiful!” —Steve Rice, Pastor and former Senior VP of EMI Christian Music Group, Integrity Music, and Centricity Music
