AllMusic Review by

This two-disc set from Sparrow Records collects 25 tracks of mostly contemporary Christian songwriters singing about love in its various manifestations, with a subtle emphasis on spiritual love. There is a lot of thoughtful musing on all of this, so don't throw this set on in the middle of a Saturday night dance party unless you want a series of intimate encounter groups to erupt instead. Among the highlights are Steven Curtis Chapman's "I Will Be Here," Bethany Dillon's rhythmically busy "For My Love," Susan Ashton's "You Move Me," and Twila Paris' delicately drawn "How Beautiful."
