On her latest Sparrow collection, Nichole Nordeman further solidifies her position as one of Christian music's premiere singer/songwriters. In the liner notes, she admits that instead of focusing (as she previously had) on her attempts to unravel the mysteries of God, she opted this time around to just write about his goodness and mercy. Instead of concentrating on the unknowns surrounding God, she decided to write what she knows. The result is a collection of songs with less angst and more unabashed joy. "Healed" showcases the beautiful poetry that infuses Nordeman's literate, pensive songwriting. "Legacy" speaks of making a lasting mark beyond what the world sees as success. She has an especially expressive voice that serves her well on these beautiful tunes. It all adds up to another strong offering from this talented artist.—DEP
