Format: Audio CD
The Pauline epistles inspire the title track of Empty and Beautiful, written in advance of the declaration of the year dedicated to the ministry of St. Paul. "In life, we end up having to empty ourselves to achieve that which is beautiful," Matt says. "If you don't, you never really get made beautiful. It's a weird dichotomy, especially in the world we live in because there's so much focus on beauty. The whole idea of having to empty one's self to achieve beauty is completely counter cultural, but that's what happens-marriage, service of the poor, sharing the beauty of the gospel. That's what Christ calls us to do, and I hope these songs will help inspire people to follow Jesus in that way." The title song envisions not only St. Paul's imprisonment and salvation, but also our personal liberation through the ultimate sacrifice of Jesus Christ. This moving anthem, beautifully arranged and produced, typifies Matt's artistry: songs that sound great and showcase lyrics that have the ability to change lives.

Some of my personal favorites on Empty and Beautiful include "Great Things", a twenty-first century recounting of the Magnificat with the slightest hint of a country twinge and "As It Is In Heaven", the sole non-Maher produced track on the CD. "As It Is In Heaven", produced by Ed Cash, gives brilliant testimony to a God who is Father of us all. Maher fans will be thrilled with the inclusion of "Your Grace Is Enough" on this project. This Matt Maher fan favorite, which has become a worship industry standard, has never sounded better. Each of the twelve tracks that comprise Empty and Beautiful underscores Matt Maher's message that our hearts are truly empty without our God, who lovingly and faithfully calls us to lay down our lives in service of His Gospel and our neighbors.

I realy like the songs "Maranatha" and "Leave A Light On"! The song "Your Grace is Enough" and some others on this album are actually re-recorded form previous albums.

I recommend Matt Maher's "Welcome to Life", "The End and The Beginning", and "Overflow" Albums as well. "Empty & Beautiful" is the first album on the Sony/Provident/Essential label!

God Bless.

Awesome, upbeat, Catholic rock music. The kids and I are jammin on the way to baseball practice each night to Matt Maher. It's great when you can find music to please everyone and even better when Daddy is on board with the music!

Matt Maher is my favorite Catholic artist out there. His songs are inspirational and very well written and preformed. The songs on this new CD are great and i recommend this, along with his other three CD's to everyone. This is a must buy if you want to start listening to music with a better message, or are a fan of Catholic/Christian music already. I've also met Matt, and hes just an all around nice guy, which made me want this CD even more!

This is Matt's best music. He just gets better and deeper with each song. If you get the chance to see him in concert, don't miss it!

For anyone that needs a fantastic CD that will make you dance for joy and turn your heart to the Lord, you need this CD! I love the entire album, but especially "Empty and Beautiful", "Look Like A Fool" and "Lay it Down". Matt Maher is truly one of God's Disciple's and is he is using his amazing gifts to bring all of us closer to Christ! This kid is amazing!

Support this guy! He's the next big thing in Christian Music!!!

"Your Grace is Enough" has been sung around the world and now we get a chance to meet the guy behind the music and lyrics. Matt Maher (like car) has emerged onto the modern worship scene with his own CD project. There are a number of standout songs that deserve a spot on worship set lists around the world also. My favorite is "Lay it Down", a simple anthem of surrender that has become part of my daily devotions to God.

We are told in John that God is looking for those who worship in spirit and truth. Jesus is bigger than the differences between Catholics and Protestants. This CD invites everyone who is a follower of Christ to worship Him in spirit and truth.
