Originally released as a mini-album this re-issue has a couple of extra new tracks to entice us with, "Perfect Sacrifice" and "Led Like A Lamb". With top rate worship leaders/composers like Brenton Brown, Kathryn Scott and Marc James the ensembles here put out skilfully arranged pop rock praise while the reflections on the cross keep us focussed on the sacrifice of Jesus. These songs focus on what he has done for us but include songs of response, "Jesus Meet Me", because we realise how merciful and gracious he is to us. If you missed this the first time around this expanded version is recommended.
