This album has been released in support of the Micah 2010 challenge. The work of Micah Challenge is a Christian response to the Millennium Development Goals aiming to halve extreme poverty by 2015. The songs on this CD are all themed around justice, mercy and humility with the aim of "joining the dots between worship and justice" and some songs help to reflect on the weekly Micah 2010 challenge topics. The CD is a compilation of old and new songs such as "Now To Live The Life" sung by Matt Redman and "You Have Shown Us" - from the CompassionArt project and performed by Chris Tomlin, Paul Baloche and Steven Curtis Chapman. Some of the other tracks on the set are by Stuart Townend, Delirious? and Brenton Brown. The order of the songs seems a little random at times, however they do help to encourage us to do justice, to love kindness and to walk humbly with our God.
