Geron Davis has long been one of Christian music's most respected songwriters, and it's his talent as a writer that provides much of the foundation for this highly listenable album. For this set, Davis penned eight of the 11 cuts, and he and his wife, Becky; Alyson Lovern; and Shelton Lovern turn in compelling performances. Hope, peace, and assurance are recurring themes that can be found in such numbers as "There's a Light On" and "Don't Be Afraid." "Evermore" is a praise-and-worship song with poignant lyrics and a pretty melody. Among Davis' best-known compositions is "Holy Ground," which has been previously recorded by Barbra Streisand. On this album, Davis and Kindred Souls serve up their own glorious treatment of this modern-day classic. Throughout, great songs and beautiful voices make for one memorable disc.—DEP
