What is hugely impressive about the worship music flowing continuously from Australia's Hillsong church is that they are continuing to present the worldwide Church with songs that truly resonate with all manner of worshippers in all kinds of cultures and denominations. Brooke (Fraser) Ligertwood recently won the Australian megachurch a Grammy by co-writing their classic "What A Beautiful Name", so it's understandable that she gets the lion's share of the songwriting and lead vocal duties on 'There Is More'. Her vocal on the single and the album's first track "Who You Say I Am" is spine-tingling as Brooke explores how Christ's redemptive work heals our identity and personality. I have no doubt that this new anthem ballad will circulate around the world Church. Elsewhere, there's a beautiful piano-led melody "New Wine"; a winsome radio-friendly "God So Love"; and a powerful anthem "The Passion". Some critics have suggested that the song "Valentine" is a mistake in that it uses a word in referencing God's love which has been so heavily secularised, though personally I don't have a particular difficulty with the word. This is, I understand, Hillsong Worship's 26th non-seasonal live album. It is also one of their very best.

Product Description
In Genesis 32 we read the story of Jacob wrestling with God through the night. On the other side of Jacob's divine encounter was a new name, a new blessing, a new identity and a new way of walking (literally). Will we be a worshipping people who are not content to sleep through the night (spiritually speaking) and wake in the morning unchanged? Like Jacob, will we enter into the wrestle with God, dare to know Him more intimately and be changed in the process?

This is the premise for Hillsong Worship’s 26th live praise and worship album. The title, “THERE IS MORE”, truly is a statement-of-belief more than a record title.

As Brooke Ligertwood writes, “THERE IS MORE at stake than we dare realise - souls, communities, families, nations on the other side of our wrestle through the night seasons. Our personal freedom is for corporate revival. THERE IS MORE of God and more to God and His love than we can possibly conceive of.”
