A set of venerable songs and hymns like "Room At The Cross", "Trust And Obey" and "There Is A Fountain Filled With Blood" sung by the middle of the road inspirational balladeer much used by the Lord in missions around the world, particularly international evangelist Reinhard Bonnke who contributes a short tribute on the sleeve.

Also reviewed in CR12:
'Redeeming Love' is a quiet, gentle programme of standard hymns and gospel songs given just the right amount of contemporary spring cleaning. These golden oldies are best kept natural and simple, their integral beauty left unmolested and pure. Oliver's got it about right to this reviewers ears. It makes a nice change to dip into past glories of Christian songwriting, hymns like "Be Still My Soul" and "Nearer Still Nearer" are reminders that these have always been creative people putting their best talents into songs of worship. A soothing refreshing tape this, exhibiting good quality in every department.
