Johann Sebastian Bach by Rick Marschall is part of the Christian Encounters series from Thomas Nelson Publishing. It presents a biography of Bach that includes both his music and his faith. The book does a good job on offering a complete picture of Bach even though there is little information available as Bach was not one for introspection.
I was interested to learn that Bach came from a very musical family, full of composers stretching back hundreds or years. It was also interesting to find out how much faith played a role in Bach’s compositions. This is a great book for the history lover!
I would recommend this book to anyone that has an interest in history or music and the faith that intertwines!
