If you're new to the pop rock delights of the Australian-cum-Nashville band, this is the best introduction you could get. As well as 17 hits, including such classics as "Shine", "Breakfast", "Take Me To Your Leader" and "Entertaining Angels", there is a DVD with three hours of footage with live concert performances of most of their bigger songs plus four concept videos. No one could argue that down the years Peter Furler and the lads have produced some of the best radio friendly CCM of the era and many cuts here still sound as fresh as a daisy.

On a road trip 2 weeks ago taking our daughter to Flagstaff AZ. for her new job at The Museum of Northern AZ., my husband and I were leaving Lincoln Nebraska, heading through the Rockies. I woke up in the hotel room and a song was playing over and over in my head. I wasn't paying too much attention but the chorus kept playing and it was getting louder. I hadn't heard the song in years, didn't even know who the artist was. I started going through all the Christian CD'S in the car and finally discovered the artist and the song on a Wowhits 2005; it was your song More. We had traveled though the desert, now the mountains, seen amazing sights and as we were going through the Rockies I sensed God playing me your song, just for me. I haven't listened to this song in years! I can't begin to tell you the impact your song had on me during this trip. We serve an unbelievablely sensative God to go to all this trouble just to let me know how truly loved I am by my Creator. Thank you for being the tool He used to speak to me in such a special way.

I had NO IDEA about this Shine-The Hits Special Edition. Is there anyway to obtain one for my Collection of Awesome music by the Newsboys before Peter took his Round About? Any people who might want to sell their copy, I'd be happy to buy it from them. Thank you for your Awesome job for us who enjoy GOOD MUSIC !
