AllMusic Review by

This is a very beautiful and inspiring CD. While it may be gospel by definition, it is more spiritual. On this CD,Grant Udellis (who wrote or co-wrote all of the material) and co-creator Mark Zentil have put together a collection of songs highlighting the strength of love, peace, and faith. Also worth noting is the appropriate Bible source that inspired or was the main resource for the music. The playing is top-notch and the production is flawless. Because most of the same performers play on the majority of the songs, there is a consistency throughout. All of the singers are strong and perform the songs with a great deal of emotion and energy.Rob Jackson and Rena Gaileare standout performers. The music ranges from easy listening to rock to world music-flavored pop to country. It all fits and it all works. This is an excellent sampler of these artists and a wonderful CD for inspiration.
