Christianity has had a complicated relationship with rock and roll music. For some, this style is the “devil’s music,” arguing that even Christian rock music is evil. For others, rock and roll is just an art form like any other, whether the lyrics are “secular” or faith inspired. Host John Fea and producer Drew Dyrli Hermeling both discuss their experiences with rock music and the Christian faith. They are joined by Randall Stephens, author of The Devil’s Music: How Christians Inspired, Condemned, and Embraced Rock ’n’ Roll.
