The back cover claims that this DVD is "more than a video, it's an experience." It's certainly an hour of creatively filmed and edited footage from the famous US church, and it's a colourful hour indeed. The choir is nothing short of resplendent as they worship with faith-filled power-gospel songs ("Nothing Is Impossible" , "All The Way To Calvary") to soulful ballads such as "More Than Enough". What makes this even more interesting (and an excellent evangelistic gift) is that the live worship is interspersed with some moving testimonies. Soloist Robyn Giles sings "It's Amazing" which cuts to her story of finding God after suffering under an abusive mother. Other real life stories include release from racism for a US Deep South Christian and all four of the testimonies in this hour long DVD are told in a hearteningly non-cringeworthy way.

GOD IS WORK ING – Now available on DVD!
After selling three million records and winning Grammy and Dove Awards, The Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir would still rather be known as a 'testimony of changed lives' and for others to know that 'God Is Working'.
Recorded live at the Brooklyn Tabernacle Church, God Is Working reflects the heart and soul of the multi-cultural Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir and Church, which reminds us that the fields are ripe for harvest and God’s Kindom is being advanced.
