This Georgia-born troubadour is ever popular both sides of the pond and across the generations and this 'Best Of. . .' album contains some of his most thoughtful songs from his previous albums. I love the honest lyrics of the praise song to God that says "I lift my eyes to the God that heals the hurt I hold inside." Yes we can praise God while we still hold onto that hurt but we can look to a God that we believe will heal us. These are creative lyrics that reflect his longing for a partner and the positive messages of hope. But none of these wonderful lyrics will prepare you for "The Hammer Holds", a story told from the point of view of the piece of steel being moulded by a hammer which appears to be rather like the potter and the clay parable. But then it becomes apparent that the destiny of the metal is to become one of the nails used to crucify Jesus. If you want to buy just one album of Bebo's work this would be an excellent choice.
