A Plea to Southern Gospel Music Fans
The free eBook and Video A Plea to Southern Gospel Fans calls on lovers of Southern Gospel to wake up and tear down the bridges that are being built from conservative Southern Gospel-loving homes and churches to the world itself and to the one-world church represented by contemporary Southern Gospel and CCM.

It is a plea to wake up to the incremental steps that are bringing God’s people ever closer to the world, the flesh, and the devil.
This bridge building is already bearing harmful fruit in this generation, and it will bear apostate fruit in the coming generations.

The book deals with this subject extensively with the most up-to-date research. It is also a multimedia report with 67 links to audio and video clips that illustrate the points, particularly the musical and vocal styles.

  • A Time of Great Change
