CCM's Heavy Metal issue..

Aah, memories. There was actually a little controversy over CCM's Heavy Metal issue from August, 1989.  It featured interviews with then-current bands like Whitecross, Shout and Barren Cross, and an essay by Pastor Bob Beeman of the Sanctuary Church entitled "Why Heavy Metal is a Ministry."  Oddly enough for the metal issue, only one metal album was reviewed.  Alongside releases by Kim Hill, Degarmo & Key, Kim Boyce and other decidedly non-metal artists, Deliverance's debut was reviewed favorably, and called the "hottest metal release of the summer."  Gotta love it!
