I met John this month at Central Seminary in Minneapolis. He teaches in the area of Old Testament and Semitic Languages. That background prepares his thinking to enter this controversial area of the CCM musical debate. He answers the most recent defenses of CCM in a detailed way that is greatly appreciated. For example, John gives a fuller and more complete answer to the proposition that Christian music was borrowed from secular writers (especially Luther and Wesley) in the same way it is being done today. Read this before you close your mind!
