Format: Audio CD
This is coming from the guy who has written off the vast majority of Christian music wholesale, finding it to be feel-good tripe. I confess that Peterson would be seemingly be the last one on the list to change one's mind about this, most of Love and Thunder's offerings appearing benign, gentle if not for the nasal delivery.

Yet this is an album that will make you weep. Somehow Peterson manages to address the core human crisis in a way that is quietly but relentlessly God-centered. "Canaan Bound" is a pure effusion of faith, "High Noon" is a perfect encapsulization of Jesus' victory, "After the Last Tear Falls" is the quiet, confident assurance of the Christian hope.

A much better integrated album than his previous efforts, the only thing the CD lacks is "Holy Is the Lord," his Abrahamic sequel found in the final City on a Hill compilation.

Ironically, the people I've found most resistant to Peterson's music are the ones most obsessed with the genre. They want the immediate gratification of a M.W. Smith, the various shining jewels of Christian music. The pearls of great price are less flashy, but something more miraculous, simple without being simplistic. Peterson has produced just this, something true enough to be redeeming.

Put this CD on in the background and find something else to do and you'll have lovely background music...but if you happen to listen closely...then magic happens. The melodies are of the sort that seem unexceptional until you find yourself humming them throughout the day. The lyrics...ah, the lyrics. Peterson's gift is to say very profound and deeply thoughtful things (and I am not intentionally exagerating) in the simplest way. A lovely phrase here, a lovely phrase there and suddenly things are in slightly different places than they've ever been before and there is a tear on your cheek and your thinking of something in your life or your relationship with God that has been there all along, but now in one incisive moment you realize how desperately beautiful it is. I'll not go on about all the songs I love, except to say...Canaan Bound. Yes, its about Sarah and Abraham going forth in faith to Canaan, but the brilliance of it is the way its clear that Sarah and Abrahams ancient biblical story is our going forth (or not) story right here and right now.

This CD was my intro to AP, as he calls himself. His strength is in his lyrics, and what poetic pictures he paints!
Canaan Bound (with Alison Krauss) is nostalgic, a sweet ode to Abraham and Sarah. I've ended many days listening to this song.
Family Man gives fathers points to ponder, and The Silence of God is wonderful.
I found After the Last Tear Falls is one of the most powerful, unexpectedly haunting songs I've ever heard.
His voice is, well, distinctive. If you prefer flawless vocals like Vince Gill, for example, maybe AP is not your man. Frankly, I'd have loved more duets.
But if insightful lyrics and pleasingly poignant melodies are more your style, you'll find him a masterful storyteller who delivers in memorable fashion a timeless message: Love never dies.
As a bonus, AP's liner notes are superb to read, and in parts so funny I've read them aloud. I've caught him in concert, he's entertaining and engaging, and that experience led me to purchase this CD, and for that I'm blessed.
Rick

Format: Audio CD
At first listen, I didn't have much of a second thought about it, except that I liked some of the musicality on the album. It wasn't until I really listened that I realized how incredible Peterson's songwriting skills are. The lyrics are simple, yet exact. They pour forth imagery, depth, profundity, and always remain accessible. His music reflects the lyrics he pens, and are ripe with melody, harmony, and emotion. The cd takes the listener through the lifespan of a man who is thoroughly convinced in the bedrock of God's love.

Canaan Bound is one of the most beautiful songs I have encountered. The simplicity of the lyric initially dissuaded me from perceiving the message of the song. It speaks of Sarah being led to Canaan. Many landscape images are portrayed as Sarah approaches Canaan, and a haunting line always remains with me: "how barren Sarah bore a son." I wondered for a long time what Peterson meant by continually referring to Sarah as being "barren," until it finally hit me that Sarah is representative. Sarah's story shows that regardless of how people try, they cannot have a child without God producing him or her. Her womb was barren, like our souls are barren without God producing life in them. Yet Sarah did bear a son, and Peterson responds, "So come to Canaan, come." It can't hurt that Alison Krauss is on background vocals, either. This may be my favorite song on the album.

Serve Hymn/Holy is the Lord is a song of praise to God, which speaks of man's sin and God's redeeming love. Our response is to "seek his face, and serve him." Matthew Perry Jones, from the Indelible Grace albums, sings backup, and the track ends in an acapella round, intertwining three different melody lines together.
