Southern Gospel journalist Daniel J. Mount has announced a new website, Expository Songs (http://expositorysongs.com/).
An expository song is a song where the main idea of a passage of Scripture is the main idea of the song.
“I have two audiences in mind,” Mount said. “First, I want to help pastors and worship leaders find songs from all eras of Christian music drawn from their sermon texts. Second, I want to help fans learn more about how their favorite songs fit into the overall narrative of Scripture.”
Mount ran Southern Gospel Journal from 2006-2014. The research project that ultimately became Expository Songs started with a similar column on that website that ran from November 2011 – May 2013.
Last year, in an Absolutely Gospel interview, he was asked if he would ever return to the blogging world. His tongue-in-cheek reply was, “Perhaps. I’m considering taking Southern Gospel Journal’s least popular feature and turning it into a website of its own.”
This is that project.
