This release celebrates 20 years of the Promise Keepers - an organisation that has encouraged tens of thousands of men to walk more closely with God - and aims to honour the Jewish fathers of the faith. Culled from a number of previous releases by high profile Messianic worship leaders such as Paul Wilbur, Joel Chernoff (of pioneering group Lamb) and Marty Goetz, this compilation is relatively free from traditional Judaic musical references with the exception of Chernoff's "Jew & Gentile" and the Hebrew-sung "Your Banner Over Me Is Love" by Karen Davis. Indeed, the inclusion of Irish praise man Robin Mark's "Days Of Elijah" at the hands of Paul Wilbur not only sets the scene for an album of Old Testament references but ensures that this release is varied in style and therefore accessible to all. Bizarrely, the album's compilers have segregated the last six songs under the banner of Music For The Heart Of Youth & Young Adults which seems an unnecessary move given that offerings such as Matthew "Duece" Washington's rap "Invisible Wars" and the grunge-tinged "Do You Want The Fire?" by Jordan Elias are just as valid as their presumably less youthful counterparts. All in all, this is an ideal introductory album for those unfamiliar with the riches of Messianic praise.
