This CD has ALWAYS been one of our family's favorites. It follows the birth narrative through song, incorparating Scripture throughout. The music is beautiful; the words, profound; the effect, masterful. If you are searching for something that will draw your heart upward and stir your soul to adoration and praise, this is the CD to buy.
God has given Michael Card a great gift of insight & musical talent. "The Promise" is the very best collection of music & lyrics on one CD that I have ever heard. God's Holy Spirit really envelopes every song. I can see God smiling. I have been listening to Michael Card & other christian artists for a long time, and he's at least at the top with the best, if not the best as far as I'm concerned. Every christian should own this CD. It's especially relevant during the Christmas season, but then, I believe it's relevant all year long, too. Thank you, LORD JESUS for giving us Michael Card & the resources needed to share his God-given gift with us.
This is an unbelievably good CD of Christmas songs, but I listen to mine year round. "Joseph's Song" is a wonderful imagining of the thoughts and feelings, which may have been running through Joseph upon the birth of Jesus. "We Have Found Him" is an up-tempo, uplifting tune that will stick in your mind all day -- but in a positive way! I can't recommend this CD strongly enough -- it's just wonderful.
