Review of God Will Make a Way by Don Moen with Robert Noland
Don Moen has had an incredible life of following God. That’s not to say it has been an easy life – far from it. But as Moen has been faithful, God has used his life to yield much fruit.
Moen was raised in a very strict religious home. He was made to take piano lessons, but was told that any music with a beat was sinful. Moen studied music in college and at the same time played professionally for area symphonies almost every night. But his fear that he was sinning – based on the theology he was taught as a child – caused Moen quit school to return to Minnesota to become a lumberjack.
Read this book to find out how God led Moen out of the woods to attend Oral Roberts University, meet his wife-to-be, and begin a long-term association with Terry Law and Living Sound to minister all over the world.
Moen is perhaps best known as a pioneer of the modern Praise and Worship movement. As part Hosanna! Integrity Music, Moen visited churches around the world to collect the latest praise and worship music, which was shared on a global level. While with Integrity, Moen signed now well-known song writers and worship leaders like Paul Baloche, Ron Kenoly, and Darlene Zschech.
The tragic death of Moen’s nephew caused the spiritual wilderness or desert, which in fact became the fertile ground for Moen to write what he describes as the defining song of his music career, “God Will Make a Way”.
Moen uses the story of how “God Will Make a Way” was written to encourage others who are feeling despondent, like they’ve prayed but nothing will change. If you need a shot of encouragement, this will be a good read for you. If you get excited reading about the miraculous ways God leads and works through His people, you’ll love this book!
