Peter Case who performed a number of sets at Greenbelt this year returns with a new set of his own compositions following his recent set of traditional songs. Fellow Christians Steven Soles and Jerry Scheff help out as Peter produces one of the finest recordings of his career. The title of the album is evidently a pun on the fact that the Christian life is not without its pains and the content of the songs reflect difficult times. If your taste is for gritty, acoustic, deeply-felt songs from within a Christian worldview, then this one is for you. Peter tells us that "the greatest story ever told" still moves him deeply ("Moves Me Deeply") and this album can do the same for you.
