AllMusic Review by

King's songwriting is much stronger on this release than on previous sets, but he maintains his focus on pop songs with melodic hooks and good musicianship. These songs demonstrate King's continuing development as a lyricist, as they alternately encourage and challenge listeners to examine and understand their faith. While the ballads are particularly strong, both musically and lyrically, King's upbeat songs often lack originality. The production serves the songs well with its clean, bright sound, and the arrangements keep the album interesting with repeated listening. Includes the number one hits "Life Is Precious," "The Love of Christ" (co-written with Michael Card and Michael W. Smith), and the title cut.
