In his first solo effort since his departure from the successful group Big Tent Revival, Steve Wiggins attempts to maintain his place as a favorite in the world of Christian music. An enjoyable collection of uplifting and inspirational songs, Faith That Is Real will surely achieve that goal. Musically, there is not a lot of variation in the tracks; most have a smooth melody and undeniable pop-rock quality. The title track and "Together for the Good" are standouts, with toe-tapping nuances and enlivening messages. Wiggins' lyrics are sincere, if a tad preachy. There is nothing subtle about his message; of course, that seems to be Wiggins' mission. With the exception of perhaps "Jesus Is Real," which attempts to be edgy but comes off a little disjointed, Wiggins has taken his best work and expanded upon it. Fans won't be disappointed in the result.—LS
