When I was first getting into Michael Card's music, I listened to this CD (well, actually it was a tape...). I really enjoyed it, though sometimes I was rather skeptical about the selection of the songs that were considered his best. Certainly, "El Shaddai", "God's Own Fool", "To The Mystery", "Why?", and "How Long?" belong to those, but I was disappointed when some of the songs from "The Life", such as "Forgiving Eyes", or from "The Ancient Faith Trilogy", such as "Lama Sabachthani" or "Valley of Dry Bones" were not chosen. Aside from that it is a great summary of his work and thoroughly enjoyable. "Chorus of Faith" is fun to listen to and you may find yourself singing along soon thereafter. If you know someone who never has listened to Michael Card, this is an excellent starting point and a really good gift! Pass on the best Christian lyricist of our time...

If you are like me, you find Christian music superficial at best and downright (bad) at worst. A major function of Michael Card's art is to dispel stereotypes about America's most notoriously cheesy subculture-Evangelical Christianity. But the real reason Michael Card exists is to glorify God through song, and the depth, longing and sincerity of his music does so beautifully. Songs like "El Shaddai", " God's own Fool," and "Immanuel" possess a lyrical capacity that is beyond the scope of most music, Christian or otherwise. Card does not rely on rhetoric or sap, but rather surrenders himself and his music to the Holy Spirit and the truth of God's word. The music is that of a man unselfconscious and alive in Christ, serious about his art, but only to the extent that it is made for God's glory.

Music is powerful. The Bible makes this clear. Within the heart of man is a desire to release their emotions, affections, dreams, concerns, even theological truths in musical form. The Psalms (literally "praises") were written with all forms of human emotions but contained truths focused on God's Word (Psalm 119 is a prime example).

Today, however, it seems Christian music has lost its theological focus. Its now more bent on experience or a "personal relationship with Jesus." Songs taken from the Scriptures and the truth therein is found mainly in some praise & worship artists and Michael Card. Card is a theologian who happens to play guitar. His love and passion for the Scriptures flows in his songs. From El Shaddai to The Final Word, Card takes deep theological truths and put them to music.

There is a silent revolution taking place in Christian music. The likes of Keith Green, Steve Camp, John Fisher, and Michael Card is not lost. God is reviving musicians who desire to glorify God alone! And I'm happy to endorse this album as an example of that revolution.

MICHAEL CARD's Greatest Hits compilation was released in 1994 - one of the best years of my life. I recall hearing the song 'WHY?' for the first time in my (then) girlfriend's car, just as we were entering the eastbound I-10 onramp at Sepulveda Boulevard. Only a couple of months earlier, on April 6, while alone in an apartment in a grungy area of Los Angeles, I was quite unexpectedly driven to my knees, where Jesus Baptized me with The Holy Spirit. I didn't exactly know what had happened to me , or why - only that I was suddenly changed somehow. Obviously, that was a special year for this reviewer, and when I heard Michael Card sing, "WHY DID THEY NAIL HIS FEET AND HANDS WHEN HIS LOVE WOULD HAVE HELD HIM THERE?" it perfectly described the Fire I felt inside me, and the Love that I knew Jesus has for us! I asked my girlfriend to replay that song several times. For me, that remains one of the greatest lines ever written about my Savior King. And although I don't play it often, 'JOY IN THE JOURNEY' always takes me back to that magical year of rebirth.

Michael Card does not have a particularly great voice, but it adequately conveys the obviously heartfelt convictions of his nicely crafted Gospel songs. What makes Card special is his lyrics; he is Christian Rock's premier wordsmith, able to create songs around deep theological concepts. He overreaches at times ("...the universe fell from His Fingertips."; "...He sent His only Son and so became a Holy Embryo."), but that's the cost of creating fresh, unique expressions, and attempting to translate the Mystery into song.

This is a "Greatest Hits" type album. Michael Card's music is different from most "contemporary" Christian musicians; it usually has a much deeper message. Many of Michael's lyrics might not even make full sense to the casual listener who doesn't know the Biblical context from which they are drawn.
This CD is sort of a blend of deep and not-so-deep lyrics. My favorite song on the CD is probably "So Many Books," describing the famine that this world is in right now when it comes to the Word of God.
"El Shaddai" is a praise to the never-changing Lord, reciting several Biblical names that we today aren't often familiar with. This song has become one of Michael's most popular; it was also recorded by Amy Grant several years back.
Oftentimes CDs contain a few songs that you usually fast-forward through. This isn't one of them. Even the few that I didn't at first like a whole lot, began to grow on me.
