This Is Our Love: A Book and CD Review

About The Book and CD:

What does it mean to truly live a life of worship?

What does the Bible say about the Father’s heart for the poor? About justice and compassion in action? What does it actually mean to lay down our lives for the broken?
In this unique compilation, singers / songwriters from across Canada have come together to seek God’s heart in answering these challenging questions.
This new Worship CD features the worship music of 16 top Canadian artists and musicians. The companion 160 page devotional book, written by Dr Jody Cross, reveals the story and biblical truths behind each song.
This resource will inspire your heart, spark your thoughts, and propel you forward in your efforts to honour the Giver. May you be impacted and challenged to truly do justice, love kindness, and walk humbly with God.

My Review:

If you are a looking for a unique devotional that will challenge you to stand up and be the disciple of Christ that we are truly called to be this is the book to read. Each chapter is a devotional based on the corresponding track on the CD that comes with the book (nicely stored at the back of the book). The chapters are short but powerful and perfect for readers junior high and older. This would be a great gift idea for all ages as well. 

The CD is awesome, and includes a lot of my favorite artists and bands. Being from Canada, I always love to promote Canadian musicians and this CD is a one I would recommend very highly. It would also work well for a small group study situation or Youth group study time.  The songs are up tempo and worshipful all at the same time, making them perfect to sing in a church service, listen to at home or in the car! My fave tracks right now are Here I Am Lord and Light of the World.

I highly recommend this book and CD and give it a huge thumbs up!
