This collection of 17 songs, recorded live at Stagepost, Nashville while touring in the autumn of 2001, has Michael and his closest friends demonstrating that creativity comes out of their "community" as men and women of God. Michael's book, Scribbling In The Sand: Christ And Creativity, is also now available. Michael Card will be known as a master of poetry with the Bible as inspiration and especially writing about the life of Jesus and how it impacts our lives. He pens such classic lines as "...to look into your judge's face and find a saviour there" ( 'Jubilee'). The sleeve contains the lyrics to two new songs, the title track and "Underneath The Door", about Michael's relationship with his father, introducing which he is very open about the pain and how it inspired him to write. The album will work better in the DVD and video formats which have been released, where, for instance, Michael introduces Chenoa Sykes and it's not clear in sound alone that she plays violin.

Alan Chesters, with the support of Kingsbridge Baptist Church, arranges visiting bands/artists, particularly for the Spiritulized monthly young people's nightclub event.
