This book has little to do with songwriting

I gave this book over 30 minutes to hopefully get in to some real songwriting tips and heard very little. The author is preoccupied with preaching about God and how God created music for us.
I'm a church going Christian, but bought this book to pick up a few new songwriting tips. Unfortunately, I don't feel like that's what I got. I only received a sermon and stories about how God has inspired the author to write.
Complete waste of my time and money...

Not worth the price, even if it’s free.

Somehow I listened to the entire audiobook. I don’t know why I put myself through such torture. This book has very little to do with songwriting. It’s a sermon, and not a good sermon at that. There are better resources on Christian music than this, if that’s what you’re interested in. I expected more from such an accomplished composer/songwriter.

A sermon rather than a book about songwriting.

Would you be willing to try another one of David Baroni’s performances?

No

Any additional comments?

Unfortunately this book focuses primarily on preaching religious doctrine and it's references to song rather than enlightening the reader on principles of songwriting. I feel the author should have made this clear in the synopsis as this purchase, for me, was a waste of money.
