Synopsis: Today there is a CRISIS IN CHRISTIAN MUSIC. Secular, pagan, and even occult musical styles have crept into the church, all dressed up with new Christian lyrics. Old, traditional hymns, tried and true, have been thrown on the scrap heap of church history. Naively, pastors, music directors, and younger members of congregations have often unknowingly embraced musical styles that can have spiritually negative effects on their listeners. Dr. Jack Wheaton, composer and instrumentalist, masterfully covers the deterioration in music in today's church.
About the Author: Jack Wheaton grew up in a musical family. His father was a well-known musician in Denver, Colorado. Frank Wheaton, Jack's father played violin, guitar, and trumpet professionally, and taught those instruments as well, until he was eighty-nine years of age.

Later he finished his master's degree at the University of Northern Colorado in 1957. His final degree, a doctorate in music and history, was primarily through the University of Southern California, Los Angeles. Dr. Wheaton was music department chairman at Cerritos College, Norwalk, California; College of the Redwoods, Eureka, California; and Administrative Director of Jazz Studies at the University of Southern California, Los Angeles. He served briefly on the faculty of the University of San Diego and has been a guest lecturer at over fifty colleges.

His music ministry positions are many, with the most recent being the director of instrumental music for Calvary Church in Santa Ana, California, the largest church in Orange County, where he arranged for and conducted regularly a seventy-piece orchestra, as well as works for choir.
