Musical Instruments in the Public Worship of God


This book lays out the exegetical case for the regulative principles of worship and then sets forth the biblical evidence that instrumental music was only authorized for use by priests and Levites for the ceremonial temple worship. The use of instruments in public worship did not continue into the New Covenant era. This work contains extensive historical documentation proving that music instruments were not used in public worship for several centuries after the close of the canon and were not used by Presbyterians until the late 19th century.
