I got a lot of time for Vicky Beeching. She's one of the more careful lyricists, she rocks out on her Les Paul, and writes good tunes.
But in all her latest press she's being touted as 'Oxford Theologian' Vicky Beeching. Now I don't want to get all up in her grill, and maybe it's just a sense of inadequacy driven by my 2 days a month distance learning theological course, but I think it takes a little more than a Uni degree to make you a theologian. After all, as far as I know, Brenton Brown got the same degree and nobody's ever called him a theologian.
But then Vicky Beeching's never dressed like a homeless truck driver on her CD covers.
Is this a sad reflection on the level of biblical insight and accuracy in contemporary worship songswriters? Does someone who knows enough to venture beyond
"he died on a tree,
at Cal-va -ree,
for you an' meeee"
stands out like Wayne Grudem at a snake handling convention?
Anyhoo - Vicky has a brand new track Salvation Day for free at iTicket. You should check it out.
