What musical style would you expect from a Messianic Jew? Zithers and a rhythm that starts slow and increases to frenetic speed while dancers struggle to keep up? Actually, the first thing I thought of when I played this was Jeff Wayne's War Of The Worlds. It doesn't all stay in that area - although it begins with a big production sound, it also has 'classic' MOR worship arrangements, too. Many of the lyrics are in Hebrew. The booklet reproduces them both in Hebrew script and in English translation. As a reviewer with a theological background, I began to play this CD expecting to have some theological issues, since I am not persuaded from Scripture of the Christian Zionist case. However, where I would actually depart biblically is in Davis' use of the Song Of Songs to depict the Bride of Christ, rather than a human bride. It then depends how comfortable you are with the idea of a 'warrior bride of Christ': in terms of prayer, yes, but it could support other less helpful forms of Christian aggression. So a mixed bag all in all: if you like the genre
you will enjoy it, but listen with a little discernment.

Product Description
The Lord Roars from Zion (Joel 3:16) is a powerful new collection of messianic praise & worship music from the Land of Israel.

International recording artist Karen Davis brings forth a vibrant blend of worship and praise, born out of the continual warfare that surrounds the nation of Israel, both spiritually and physically.

Recorded in the Holy Land in both the Hebrew and English languages, these ‘songs of the warrior bride’ reflect the heart and soul of the believers living in Israel today.
