Holy Wars "is the most memorable book on the subject of church music I've ever read. . . Your work is exquisite! " Frank Pooler Professor/Director Cal State Long Beach University Choir.
Holy Wars is a comprehensive worship study written for every believer who seeks to live a life of true biblical worship within the cultural storm that we find ourselves today. It is an intimate book written for the benefit of promoting a personal relationship with Jesus Christ according to the guidance of God's Word.
When we think of "Holy Wars" one might picture terrorism. But there is a Holy War raging within the church itself that is proving to be of far more consequence than Islamic dread. Because this war is engaged within the worship life of the people of God, the outcome could seriously undermine Christian orthodoxy and the Christian way of life for generations to come.
As the result of the efforts of Church Growth advocates, congregations throughout America are contending over different notions of worship. The decisions that Christians make in that regard will determine the shape and influence of the Church and the nature of our society over the next century.
We can find answers within this ongoing battle once we have come to a full understanding of the nature of biblical worship. Many times manipulative entertainment schemes, attempts to conform to the world, watered-down theology, church politics, mediocre music and unbiblical worship forms drag the people of God away from their true calling. Holy Wars delves into each of these areas of church life to discern what is going wrong while offering specific biblical remedies.
