A Commerical Interruption

Quite a long time ago, I heard about a new CD put out by Sovereign Grace Ministries. " Sovereign Grace Ministries is a church-planting ministry with a family of 65 churches in the U.S., Mexico, Canada, Bolivia, Ethiopia, and the U.K. [Their] primary purpose is to establish and nurture local churches to God's glory. Indeed, [their] greatest desire is that the members of these churches ? both corporately and as individuals ? would bring glory and honor to God in their public and private lives." (That's from their website.)

Anyway, this new CD is called "Awesome God." This is the first CD of worship music they have put out specifically for children. The twelve songs "express God's characteristics and nature in words that kids understand."

I agreed to review this CD in exchange for a free copy of it. I'm not sure what I expected, but I have to say that I was surprised by the excellent quality of the recordings. The vocals (mostly by children) are beautifully done and the lyrics are easy to understand. Many of the songs are upbeat and all of the words are in keeping with a theologically reformed viewpoint. This music is a terrific way for kids to learn about "God's greatness," (as it says on the back of the CD case) and it's gorgeously done, too.

I will be passing along this CD to our church's children's choir director so all the children in our church can benefit. I heartily recommend this CD to you, too, if you are looking for Christian music for your kids.

You can hear clips of the songs here.

(Oh, and my 12-year old son gave this music "thumbs-up.")

I think Adrian Warnock, a prominent Christian blogger/ British minister/ psychiatrist is connected with sovereign grace. I've been impressed by his blog.

Thanks for your kind comments, Mel. We are pleased that you enjoyed the CD.

As for Adrian, he has been an enthusiastic supporter of Sovereign Grace and we are grateful for his friendship, but he is actually part of the Newfrontiers family of churches, which is led by Terry Virgo.
