This set is a repackage of the 'Offerings' albums of 2000 and 2002 which, as many followers of the Atlanta rockers will know, were groundbreaking worship projects of live and studio recordings. What stands out instantly is the depth of Mac Powell's vocals, which guide and lead the audience perfectly. The live performances bring with them a richness in production that not only complements the studio recordings, but, with the help of the crowd, really transports you into a state of worship. Standouts are the classic songs "Agnes Dei/Worthy" and "My Hope Is You" and there are other gems as well. My personal favourite from volume one would have to be the acoustic led "All The Heavens", with its haunting bagpipe-esque close while on volume two I was particularly impacted by the energy and passion of the live recordings. This is a great collection that uplifts and entertains.
