AllMusic Review by

Filled with keyboards, slide guitar, and drum machines, 10 Great Christian Love Songs, Vol. 1 tries to bridge the gap between praise music and easy listening love ballads. Popular Christian artists such as Steven Curtis Chapman and Jim Brickman try and bring a certain amount of emotion to the proceedings, but the overall effect does not capture the frenzied passion of good gospel or the beautiful yearning of a good love song. Instead, this comes off more as a collection of similar ballads done by Christian artists, not as a grouping of "great Christian love songs." Fans of these artists will enjoy this collection, but others will probably be turned off by the overall blandness of the album.
