The tentative title is Save Your Sermons: Spirituality and the Music of Dave Matthews Band. The premise is pretty much what it sounds like: I'll analyze the spiritual themes of some of DMB's lyrics, drawing out some general points and considering what the band's music has to teach us about spirituality.
Some of it may be explicitly Christian, some of it not so much. I don't want it to be a straight-up "Gospel According to Dave Matthews" sort of book; I'm going to let them lead the way and speak for themselves on these issues.
I'm working with Wipf and Stock this time around, and as mentioned the plan is to have a finished product out sometime next year, probably summer at the earliest but maybe closer to fall. Over the next few months, I'll say more about the content and how it's all progressing, both on here but also on my Facebook page and Twitter.
While you're waiting, have you read Coffeehouse Contemplative yet? Here's the link just in case you haven't.
Thanks, as always, for reading. Because that is what makes this possible. Stay tuned.
