The list author says: "**Note: My latest board game BIBLEQUOTE is now available on Amazon. My previous one, BIBLE TRIVIA(The Game Where Trivia Is Not Trivial)is the all-time leader in Christian games, with 3 million sold.
The focus below is individual songs, not albums.At left is at least one album/CD where you can find my selection. These are ranked roughly in order of my personal preference.(Actually a couple, such as John Denver's GOODBYE AGAIN and Steve Goodman's YELLOW COAT, I would rate much higher as quality songs, but lower on this particular list because their 'Home' theme is not perhaps the main element of their appeal.) Make sense?"

"COMIN' HOME. My favorite Seger recording, edging out Against The Wind. Didn't get radio play because it's slow and 6 mins long. But heck, so was Roberta Flack's THE FIRST TIME EVER I SAY YOUR FACE. 'Coming Home' is on Youtube."

"FAMILY BIBLE, by Willie. There are other good items here, which I've already recommended on other CDs. Merle does, I think, the best version of Kristofferson's Christian classic ONE DAY AT A TIME. Not sure who does which song here, since both artists have recorded many of these songs."
