What’s The Truth Behind Multi-ethnic Church Worship?

There's a book out by Gerardo Marti’s Worship Across the Racial Divide: Religious Music and the Multiracial Congregation that has planned to shake how we feel about worship, (multicultural, that is) in today's modern society. Marti's book is a sociological exploration of worship music ministry in multiethnic churches, and as such, its timing is critically important. There’s, of course, no shortage of resources that point to multicultural worship music as a panacea to cure what ails struggling churches, something that will help to usher in a glorious new dawn of cross-racial unity. What sets this work apart is its approach, says report.

Here's a description of the book and what we should expect to learn from it:
Worship Across the Racial Divide aims to be more descriptive than prescriptive. Through thousands of interviews of pastors, worship leaders, and congregants from a variety of multiethnic churches across the diverse state of California, Marti, a sociology professor at Davidson College, uncovers a series of principles and patterns gleaned from actual multicultural worship ministries. Rather than speculate on what should be, the book tells us a lot about what is.
