About this title

Synopsis:

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.

About the Author:

Don Wigton is a graduate of the prestigious music department at CSULB where he studied under Frank Pooler, lyricist of Merry Christmas Darling, and sang in Pooler's world renown University Choir alongside Karen and Richard Carpenter. During this time Don was also the lead composer of the band, Clovis Putney, that won the celebrated Hollywood Battle of the Bands. After giving his life to God, Don began attending Calvary Chapel, Costa Mesa to study under some of the most prominent early Maranatha! musicians. Subsequently he toured the Western United States with Jedidiah in association with Myrrh Records. Eventually Don served as a pastor at Calvary Chapel Bakersfield to witness thousands of salvations through that ministry. As the music/concert director, Don worked for seven years with most major Christian artist of that time while producing evangelical concerts attended by thousands of young people seeking after God. Don's Calvary Chapel Praise Choir released the album Let All Who Hath Breath Praise the Lord on the Maranatha! label. The next years of Don's life were spent as the praise leader of First Baptist Church in Bakersfield during a time of unprecedented church renewal. Don teamed with the leadership to successfully meld the old with the new through a period of tremendous church growth. During this exciting time, Don's praise team, Selah, produced the CD Stop and Think About It. Today Don is the leading force behind Wigtune Company. This web-based project located at praisesong.net has provided several million downloads of Don's music and hymn arrangements to tens of thousands of Christian organizations throughout the world. The book Holy Wars represents Don's most recent effort to bless the church with biblical instruction and direction in praise and worship. This heartfelt volume is an offering not only to God's people, but also to God Himself.
