The Origins of Christian Rock

Greg Thornbury on Larry Norman


Season 3 of Cultivated kicks-off with one of our favorite people, making his second appearance on the podcast: Dr. Gregory Alan Thornbury. Greg stopped by to talk about his book Why Should the Devil Have All the Good Music?, a biography about Larry Norman and the origins of Christian rock music. It’s a fascinating story that raises questions about both the role of the artist and the dangers of the Christian subculture.

Cultivated is a presentation of Harbor Media and Narrativo Group. Today's episode was produced and mixed by Mike Cosper and edited by TJ Hester. Our theme music is by Roman Candle, with other music in today's episode by the great Larry Norman himself.
