We went to the Christian bookshop today and stocked up on some new stuff for our next season of reading and listening.
Here’s our stash:
// Healing Unplugged / Bill Johnson and Randy Clark
// Hosting the Presence / Bill Johnson
// Sun Stand Still / Steven Furtick
// Intercessory Worship / Dick Eastman
// The Devil Has No Mother / Nicky Cruz
// Expecting Miracles / Heidi and Rolland Baker
// Jesus Through Middle Eastern Eyes / Kenneth E Bailey
// Decade / Israel Houghton and New Breed
// Cornerstone / Hillsong
// Centre of It All / Desperation Band
// Lift Him Up With Ron Kenoly – 25th Anniversary Edition
// Experience Unceasing Fruitfulness / Joseph Prince
These are going to keep me occupied for some time!
I’m particular pleased with Lift Him Up which was in the bargain bin. I’ve decided that given the volume of new worship recordings coming out all the time, there’s no point buying old worship CDs anymore. If a church hasn’t taken a song up, there’s very little chance of finding good, usable songs from two or three years back. We will just need to give them up to music heaven and push forward with the new things. But I make an exception for classics like Lift Him Up, an album that in my opinion really changed the worship landscape. I listened to my old Lift Him Up cassette so often that the ribbon eventually snapped, relegating the cassette to a different type of music heaven. So glad that I was able to find the CD incarnation. It’s like connecting with an old friend after all these years.
