AllMusic Review by

Not simply a collection of songs, GOING HOME (the companion piece to HEAVEN), is an ambitious gathering of musicians, theologians, preachers, and devoted Christians, all directed and encouraged by Gospel legends Bill And Gloria Gaither. The album is presented in a format that's part Southern Baptist service and part Broadway show, constantly engaging the listener with prayers, advice, stories, religious ruminations, and a wide variety of uplifting music. The Gaither's greatest strength has always been their obvious sincerity and easygoing manner, and these qualities are more apparent than ever on GOING HOME. What was surely an immensely complicated undertaking that could easily have turned into a logistical nightmare here has the wonderful feel of a spontaneous living room sing-a-long. Musically, the repertoire ranges from traditional small group bluegrass to massive choral ensemble pieces, all delivered with overflowing good will and relaxed virtuosity.
