My Thoughts:
When you know where you’re going, you’re always headed home.”  (Where You’re Going – chorus)

Gary Chapman’s latest project, The Truth, is a brutally honest, poignant and realistic picture of a lot of Christians’ every day struggles and relationship with Christ. This is a 16-song album packed with everything from toe-tapping songs to gentle, lyrical worship hymns.  There is something for everyone on this album, and I think believers of every age will find thought-provoking truth in every song!  This is a RICH album!

How Great A God is my favorite song, and I am blessed every single time I listen and worship to its message!  This song is a beautiful anthem of grace! The Rough Crowd contains a reminder that believers need hear – that God redeems and transforms lives in unmistakable, undeniable ways!  Safe from the Wind is another favorite – a lilting reminder that we have a refuge in Christ no matter what changes blow through our lives.  When I Say is another very honest look into the daily walk of a Christian – a bold statement that without God we can do nothing – a humble statement of faith by someone who knows what it feels like to be broken.

Gary Chapman has walked a broken road at times in his life, but I think The Truth is an honest representation of the anchor that has enabled him to weather the storms of life and still know the love of Christ.  I think many lives will be encouraged and strengthened by the message found in the words of this project.  I am happy to recommend this to everyone!
