Jars of Clay's Dan Haseltine sings on "By Faith," on which Card describes faith as a power that "can shut the mouths of lions." Longtime Card producer Phil Naish uses subtle programming on the song to reveal an edgier side of Card's music. But the majority of the album is typical Card: light acoustic pop in an adult contemporary vein.
The disc's highlight is the remake of "He Was Heard," a song Card originally recorded for Known by the Scars (1983). It's a song he wrote while in college to summarize everything he knew at the time about Hebrews, and Card sings the 2000 version an octave or two below the original. The production is stronger, putting the song over the top.
Unfortunately, the back half of the disc slows musically. But that doesn't mean that the lyrics suffer. Instead, Card pours his wisdom into each song, wasting no word on empty rhymes or predictable themes. -- David Mackle (c) 2000 CCM Communications, Inc. -- From CCM Magazine -- Subscribe Now!
Excellent music. Great story telling in the lyrics. Very uplifting music and provides encouragement for the soul. One of Michael Card's best works.Published 21 months ago by Michael W Emery
I have been a fan of Michael Card's music for well over a decade. This album is one of his lesser known works and was inspired by the book of Hebrews in the New Testament. Read morePublished on October 26, 2005 by R. Kern
