“Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us,

Fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.

Consider him who endured such opposition from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.”

- Hebrews 12:1-3

DEVOTION: Poetry - Art Inspired By The Hymns of Faith

AVAILABLE NOW: DEVOTION: Poetry and Art Inspired By The Hymns of Faith

To View and Order Go To:

http://www.christianknightcomics.com/books-devotion-poetry-art-collection

FROM THE INTRODUCTION: "We started this special collection of poetry based on the hymns of faith determined to combine the rich, spiritual heritage of the hymns with contemporary settings, people and events into a series of poems that would find hope in hopelessness, strength in weakness and love in the unlovable. Inspired years ago to do an ode to the hymns after attending a church worship service, we began to view them not only as songs but as poetry, realizing how fascinating they truly are.

"It is songs like "At The Cross", "I Surrender All", "Just A Closer Walk With Thee" and "Amazing Grace" in which we pay tribute in this collection. You'll notice the change in song titles and the rearrangement of them in a different perspective. We even incorporated some lines from the hymns within the poems themselves as hints to the messages being conveyed. So, you have a greater explanation to most of what we have done. It's not always good to reveal too much of one's artwork to an audience at hand but its always helpful when presenting a new idea that otherwise would only cause others to scratch their heads. It was both exciting and rewarding digging deep into the foundations to which Contemporary Christian music and the world owes a debt.

Featured Profile: Jars of Clay - Christian Rock Pioneers

Jars of Clay is a Christian rock band from Nashville, Tennessee. They met at Greenville College in Greenville, Illinois.

Jars of Clay consists of Dan Haseltine on vocals, Charlie Lowell on piano and keyboards, Stephen Mason on lead guitars and Matthew Odmark on rhythm guitars. Although the band has no permanent drummer or bassist, Jeremy Lutito and Gabe Ruschival of Disappointed By Candy fill these roles for live concerts. Past tour band members include Aaron Sands, Scott Savage, and Joe Porter. Jake Goss was recently added to the band to play drums for their summer tour. Jars of Clay's style is a blend of alternative rock, folk, acoustic, and R&B.
 
The band's name is derived from the New International Version's translation of 2 Corinthians 4:7: “ But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us.”

This verse is paraphrased in their song "Four Seven", which appears as a hidden track on the CD release of their self-titled album.

Featured Profile: Point of Grace

Point of Grace is an all-female Contemporary Christian music group. The trio consists of Shelley Breen, Denise Jones, and Leigh Cappillino. The group started out as a quartet in 1991, with original members Breen and Jones, as well as Terry Jones and Heather Payne. In November 2003, Terry Jones decided she needed to spend more time with her family after giving birth to her third child, and left the group, with Cappillino joining in March 2004 for their 2004 release I Choose You. In June 2008, Payne announced her retirement from the group, in order to spend more time with her husband and four children.

The group's debut self-titled album was released in 1993; since then, they have been recognized as one of the top Contemporary Christian music bands in the United States. In 2003, they released their ninth album, 24 - a compilation of their 24 consecutive No. 1 radio singles. To this date, no band in any genre has matched this record. As of 2006 the girls have 27 No. 1 radio singles.

Point of Grace got its start at Ouachita Baptist University in Arkadelphia, Arkansas. Denise Masters, Terry Lang and Heather Floyd, who knew each other from Norman, Oklahoma, coincidentally found themselves at OBU, and naturally got involved in music. They sang in a vocal group called 'The Ouachitones,' which was made up of 14 girls. Within the group, the girls formed a trio, and after a sound check for a Ouachitones performance, the girls were singing a cappella when they were told by an onlooker that they should do something together. Shelley Phillips had come from Little Rock, Arkansas to OBU with a scholarship in vocal performance. She sang in a group called the Praise Singers, made up of four girls and four guys and they traveled around the country performing concerts. She became friends with Terry and Heather through Denise, who was her roommate and sister in the social club Chi Delta. After Heather, Terry and Denise made plans to form a trio and sing together over the summer, Denise went back to her dorm room and excitedly told Shelley about their summer plans. After Shelley suggested that the trio became a quartet, it seemed to be the perfect fit.

They called themselves Say So, taken after Psalm 107:2 where it says, "Let the redeemed of the Lord say so." It truly was a do-it-yourself project, and group's tasks were delegated amongst themselves according to each one's best ability. Heather took care of publicity and album sales, Terry took care of the money, Shelley was in charge of booking and Denise was in charge of all their music. Before their performances, they were the ones who would haul their equipment onstage and set it up. They developed quite a following that summer, and spent the remainder of the year singing every weekend. After many fan requests, they recorded an independent album, and became favorites in the South and Midwest. Despite not seeing a reason to pursue a major record deal, the girls, encouraged by their family members attended the 1992 Music in the Rockies Christian Artists Seminar in Estes Park, Colorado. They wowed the crowd and the judges when they performed "He's The Best Thing" and wound up winning the Overall Grand Prize in the Group competition.

The girls found that, after their performance, there was major record label interest, and by prayerful decision, the group decided to sign with Word Records. They then moved to Nashville to start work on what would become their self-titled debut album.

He's back. Even though his band broke up underneath him, this man has gotten right back out there with a solo album before our tear-soaked tissues could dry up. Pete Stewart is back. Some may know him from the late hard rock band Grammatrain which broke up last fall (hence the tear-soaked tissues). But Pete didn't let that stop him. Only a month or two after the break-up, Pete ventured into the studio with dc Talk's Michael Tait producing, to record his first solo project on Forefront Records.

The ultimate highlight on this project isn't the duet with Michael Tait in "Uphill Battle" (which is fantastic and comes in as a very close second), but is the rocker "Don't Underestimate Me." It's a pop/rock song that sort of carries a "Grammatrain Lite" sort of vibe. An instant favorite.

This album, when I first heard it, didn't seem all too spectacular, but after multiple listens, this project has grown on me and is working its way into my daily CD rotation. It's still not Grammatrain and is still somewhat of a tease to hear Stewart's vocals gracing a completely different kind of musical backdrop. - Review date: 2/14/99, written by John DiBiase

Jonathan Pierce - One Love - CD

Available For A Limited Time! Jonathan Pierce - One Love – CD

To view and order go to:

http://www.christianknightcomics.com/music-jonathan-pierce-one-love-cd

This former member of The Imperials and the Gaither Vocal Band proves on is first solo effort that he can hold his own with no problem! This is pure pop with a fresh sound. The title track "One Love" was nominated for Song of the Year at the 1996 Dove Awards and set the standard for all of his future singles. There are some beautiful slow ballads on this album (i.e. I Rely On You) that showcase Jonathan's amazing vocal ability. Stevie Wonder's "Heaven Is Ten Zillion..." is a perfect mood lifter and though you might find it an odd choice for a "white boy," it works beautifully with the rest of the songs on the album. The most beautiful track is definitely "Healing Hands." This is a wonderful collection of songs in its own right, but it is also a great setup for his other two albums.

1. Single Grain of Faith

5. I Believe in Christ
6. Farther Than Your Grace Can Reach
7. Together
8. Mission of Life
9. You Carried Me
10. To Be a Christian
11. Single Grain of Faith - (Remix)

"Mission" is Jonathan Pierce's second solo album and it doesn't disappoint. It is more vocally ambitious than "One Love," his first album. A few of the cuts (such as "Hold Me In Your Arms) let us see the fun side of Jonathan's music, while songs like "Farther Than Your Grace Can Reach" show us the softness and power of his voice. His remake of "Praise the Lord" is amazing and "I Belive In Christ" follows in the same vein. My favorite track is "To Be A Christian." This song depicts what being a true Christian is all about. It would have had great potential if it had been released as a single. This is a great album that will encourage the listener to be all they can for God. Enjoy it!

12. Welcome to Earth (9:46)


Johnny Q. Public was a Christian alternative rock band from Springfield, Missouri. Although their sound was wholly modern, it was influenced by bands such as Led Zeppelin and Cream. In addition to their music they were known for their Charismatic theology, which they would dramatically display through audience participation at their live shows.

Their follow up record, Welcome to Earth, was released by both Gotee and Roadrunner records.Its sound shifted toward pop with hints of hard rock. HM magazine likened it to the Newsboys, stating that the band could easily receive radio play in both Christian and mainstream markets. In support they toured with Bleach and Skillet.

Johnny Q Public is a band that lays down all its cards. There's no bluffing, no surprises, just a full house of rock burning throughout. After a five-year self-imposed hiatus, the band returns with their sophomore release Welcome to Earth. "Body Be" was actually featured on the now defunct MTV 120 Minutes and finds its re-release here. The cut is a full-throttle joy ride of heavy guitars that features a tasty mid-song breakdown, proving less is actually more. "Already Gone" is well-oiled machinery. Drummer Nathan McCorkle lays out a solid punch. The tune's chorus is engaging, aiding a song brimming with electricity. "Move" chugs along at a steamroller pace. The cut is an example of hard rock/alternative splendor. Vocalist Dan Fritz has an engaging edge while guitarist Shawn Turner peppers the tune with well-placed licks. "P.K." boasts a hypnotic bassline that fittingly drives the song. The cut is one of JQP's heaviest and showcases Fritz's vocals nicely. Individually Johnny Q Public emerges musically competent, but as a whole each band member really cooks. Throughout Welcome to Earth, the band throws out several standard rock riffs that help make the disc potent but not overbearing or cliché. After a five-year hiatus, this could be the second coming Johnny Q Public was hoping for. ~ Steven Losey, All Music Guide

To view and order:

http://www.christianknightcomics.com/music-darrell-evans-consuming-fire-cd


Consuming Fire is a live Christian worship music album by Darrell Evans and friends released in April 2004. It was recorded at World Revival Church in Kansas City, MO and Trinity Church in Amarillo, TX.

Track Listing:

   1. "Worship Intro"
   2. "Consuming Fire" - (Darrell Evans)
   3. "Jesus I Come to Follow" - (Evans)
   4. "Anywhere with You" - (Evans)
   5. "Precious Jesus" (with Kate Miner) - (Evans)
   6. "Exalted" (with Charlie Hall) - (Evans)
   7. "Blessed Be the Lord" - (Evans)
   8. "My Everything" - (Evans and Andre Gonzalez)
   9. "Fields of Grace" (with Mike Weaver of Big Daddy Weave) - (Evans)
  10. "My Reward" (with Paul Baloche) - (Paul Baloche)
  11. "The One and Only" - (Evans)
  12. "Just As I Am" - (Evans)
  13. "Harp in My Heart" (with Kevin Prosch) - (Kevin Prosch)
  14. "Dream Before You" (with Kate Miner) - (Music: Kate Miner; Words: Judie Lawson)
  15. "Let the River Flow 2" - (Evans)

The title track, as with most of Darrell's songs on this album, has an economy of words and is infinitely singable. Both 'Consuming Fire' and 'Jesus, I Come to Follow' have rhythmic grooves and will serve the Sunday morning worship well if done in the same electric style. Kate Miner backs up on both tracks. As far as Darrell's up-tempo songs go, 'Blessed Be the Lord', 'My Everything' and 'Field of Grace' are all great songs. I especially like 'Fields of Grace'. The song came to Evans as he felt God asking Him to dance with Him. As invasive as this was to his comfort zone, and admitting that he didn't even know how to dance, he did know how to shout and spin around. So he did; he danced with God right there in the end zone of a football field. This is a tremendous song to help break down the walls of pride and self-focus in our lives.

'Exalted' features Charlie Hall on vocals and is a wonderful song with excellent guitar work, and again, simple, but powerful lyrics. 'My Reward' was written and sung by Paul Baloche and is a very melodic, mid-tempo song that props up the eternal rewards against the temporal ones. This song is a definite keeper. This marvelous work will give the worship leader some diverse material from which to choose. It will also serve well as private worship in the home, car, etc… This CD and its live performance make this great project to buy. Get it now while the supply lasts! - Review by John Ausmus Inc.

Keith Green (1953-1982) Singer, Songwriter, Musician

Keith Gordon Green (October 21, 1953 – July 28, 1982) was an American gospel singer, songwriter, musician, and Contemporary Christian Music artist originally from Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn, New York. Beyond his music, Green is best known for his strong devotion to Christian evangelism and challenging others to the same. Often considered controversial for his frequently confrontational lyrics and spoken messages, some notable songs written by Green and/or his wife, Melody Green, include "Your Love Broke Through," "You Put This Love In My Heart," and "Asleep In The Light." Green is also known for numerous popular modern hymns, including "O Lord, You're Beautiful" and "There Is A Redeemer."

In 1975, the Greens began an outreach program in the suburbs of Los Angeles, California, in the San Fernando Valley. Purchasing the home next door to their own and renting an additional five in the same neighborhood, Keith and Melody provided a environment of Christian teaching for a group of young adults, the majority of whom were of college age. Much to the consternation of neighbors, those living in the Green's homes included former drug addicts, the homeless and even some prostitutes who had been referred to the Greens by other ministries and shelters. In 1977, the Greens outreach was officially named Last Days Ministries.

Keith Green's initial tone of ministry was largely influenced by Leonard Ravenhill, who pointed Keith to Charles Finney, a nineteenth century revivalist preacher who preached the law of God to provoke conviction in his hearers. During his concerts he would often exhort his listeners to repent and commit themselves more wholly to following Christ. Green later softened his approach, and this transition is evident in his music beginning with So You Wanna Go Back To Egypt in 1980. He described the changes he went through in his next-to-last article for the Last Days Magazine.

Some songs define moments in our lives we will never forget. They're songs that years later can evoke the sights, sounds, and even smells of the time we first heard them. "Kiss Me," the red-hot, irresistible single from this self-titled release, will probably be one of those songs for the many who've by now experienced its charms. The culprits? A trio of youthful central Texans, by way of Nashville, called Sixpence None the Richer. On the rest of this Grammy-nominated gem, Sixpence serve an airy blend of Abra Moore-meets-Sundays acoustic pop. It's beautifully rich and constantly augmented by Leigh Nash's earthy vocals, Matt Slocum's songwriting genius, and steady rhythms from Dale Baker. Like Jars of Clay, Sixpence have "raised the bar" for the rest of late-'90s contemporary Christian music. --Michael Lyttle

Taking its inspiration from Oswald Chamber's classic daily devotional of the same name, My Utmost for His Highest is a collaboration of many of the top names in Christian music, each performing songs that pertain to a certain day from Chamber's devotional. Lest you think of this as merely a fantastic marketing ploy to sell more copies of Chamber's book, the depth of honesty and chronicling of spiritual truth contained in this album are unparalleled.

Some songs come closer than others in relating to Oswald's point each day. Steven Curtis Chapman nails it on the head with "Sometimes He Comes in the Clouds," when he sings, "Sometimes His face cannot be found/Sometimes the sky is dark and gray/But some things can only be known/And sometimes our faith can only grow when we can't see/So, sometimes He comes in the clouds." Acknowledging that God sees and works in us where we can't even see, Sandi Patty scores with "God of All of Me," in which she confesses "Lord, in my soul, in secret parts of me/There are places in my heart that only You can reach/Brighter shines my hope than the morning light/Deeper is my stain of sin than any dark of night." Twila Paris also connects with "Where He Leads Me" where she acknowledges our need to be receptive to God's call on all of our lives.

Beautifully produced by Brown Bannister, this Utmost project tends to be pretty mellow and reflective, keeping the focus on the message of the songs. Michael W. Smith's songs "Move in Me" which proclaims the confidence of God's reality as being found inside his heart, has a tremendous orchestration to it but with a melody reminiscent of his songs "All I Needed to Say" and "Do You Dream of Me.'

Other great performances are turned in by Amy Grant on "Lover of My Soul," Gary Chapman on "Man After Your Own Heart," Cindy Morgan on "You'll Be There," and Bryan Duncan on "A Heart Like Mine." -- Mark A. Smeby (c) 1995 CCM Communications, Inc.
