This Integrity-Provident reissue of veteran CCM troubadour Don Francisco's 2007 release is very much a no frills affair in that no bonus tracks, additional sleevenotes or other extras are included. Nonetheless, its return to the shelves is a timely reminder of Francisco's natural ability to translate Biblical narratives into song in his trademark narrative style with songs such as "Hole In The Roof" and the title track bringing to life the story of Jesus' famous healing of a paralytic man and the Parable Of The Sower respectively. In truth, Francisco is at his best when he lets his hair down and shows his blues and country rock roots and upbeat tracks such as "It Is Written", "Rock Steady" and "It Will Be So" are the cream of the crop in this pleasing release.
