Sound The Trumpet is written by a worship leader/teacher/professional trumpet player to help laity and clergy alike to understand how the most mentioned instrument in Scripture has been so intricately woven into God’s Word as a representation of His voice to call His people to battle, move, worship, and repent.
It is a verse-by-verse construct, helping the reader to recognize the importance of the trumpet to the Hebrews, to their enemies, to modern believers and to God.
