As promised, here is my final (for now) installment of the Defining Christian Music series, a list of links to relevant blog posts, articles, movies, sermons, and books on the topic.

If you know of any more, please add a link in the comments.  Some day, I will read all of these in one sitting, and my head will literally explode with all there is to know about “Christian Music.”  I’ll be sure to take a video and put it up on YouTube for everyone.

Without any further ado (What the heck is an ado?), here is the list you’ve all been waiting for:
