As A performance of largely unfamiliar songs, this album seems to have all the vibrancy one would hope for, although no musical norms are broken as they tend to follow in the typically Kendrickesque-style. A prayer from the event is included here but sounds a little contrived, particularly on repeat listenings. However, I don’t doubt that the impact at the time was far more effective. In terms of theology, though, I would have preferred a little qualification on a couple of points; for example, the lyric “Majestic King, wealth and honour come from you” does rather suggest that the Colombian drug barons are merely blessed individuals. While the wisdom God provides to use this gift effectively is also referred to, no specific link is made, which may have been helpful. Perhaps this simply exhibits my own personal prejudices, but this album, although technically good, is aimed at members of the middle classes who seek the joy of praise through song, rather than the joy of worship through sacrifice. As such, it is another title in an already crowded market place – a comfortable armchair, not a cross to bear.

Hello -

Dear brother - you write that:
"this album..is aimed at members of the middle classes who seek the joy of praise through song, rather than the joy of worship through sacrifice.."

Please be assured that the Kingdom Faith experience I have had is very much a call to holiness and sacrifice.

Yours,

Allan.
