This is the debut album from a husband and wife team based in Vancouver, Canada. The album show cases a strong set of songs with a variety of musical styles. It opens with a couple of country-tinged soft rock songs, the title track, a call from Jesus to come to him for help and security working well, "Bread To Eat" is a reminder that the Christian life is not easy. The song has a very catchy rock feel to it, with Andrew's strong vocals warning the listener "Beware my friends if you're looking for an easy deal." The pace of the album then slows down a little. There is the bluesy "You're So Different" celebrating who Jesus is while the very personal "Cast Your Cares", written for a friend of Andrew's who had cancer, is extremely moving. In fact each song is given a personal introduction in the sleeve notes, which is a nice touch, as the listener can feel where the idea for each song has come from.
