If you're familiar with Roger's musicals 'In His Presence' and 'No Greater Love' you will be delighted that the gifted pianist/composer has now emerged with his strongest project yet. The songs have been specially written for use in 'seeker services' which, if you're not familiar with the concept, is an idea initiated in America by the Willow Creek Community Church where unchurched people can be presented with spiritual truth through meetings (music and drama being much in evidence) which Mr & Mrs Joe Average find comprehensible, non-threatening and, in the jargon of this fast developing church movement, "seeker-sensitive". The music on this CD is tuneful, simply orchestrated and very MOR (no drum kits here). Some excellent vocals from the underrated Sarah Delight and this will no doubt be a useful resource for some churches.
