Widely regarded as one of Christian music's finest songsmiths thanks to his work with the likes of Point Of Grace and Jaci Velasquez as well as his own prolific output over the last two decades, this Christmas offering sees Washington's Scott Krippayne in fine form. Opting for a stripped down, piano-led approach, Krippayne is in contemplative mood with gentle festive tunes such as the title track, "This Is God" and "Do Not Be Afraid" promoting the true meaning of Christmas in thought-provoking fashion. Elsewhere, "All Roads Lead Home" and "Melt Like Snow" will appeal to those who are looking for a more mainstream feel good factor whilst Krippayne chooses to throw a couple of old chestnuts onto the open fire with the inclusion of "O Come All Ye Faithful" and "O Holy Night" - the latter showing the man's vocal skills in their best light. Only the out of place Michael Bublé schmaltz of "Christmas Made For Two" fails to make the grade in this otherwise enjoyable and heart-warming yuletide release.
