Songs for The Cross Centred Life

This has barely left my CD-Player since my colleague Dave Gobbett sent it to me. Fifteen songs declaring the wonders of the cross of Christ, with energy, clear conviction and passion.

As CJ says on the sleeve, - "I'm no singer (ask my friends) but I love to sing about the cross. A Christian's heart should be brimming everyday with the song of Calvary... There is no better way to start each day than to employ songs and hymns that speak of the cross with clarity and power"

If you're in the UK odds are the only song on this album that you know is Before the Throne of God above - this is just the tip of the iceberg. The CD case contains the first chapter of the book The Cross Centred Life and all lyrics and sheet music are downloadable from Sovereign Grace Music - More about this album at SGM.


  1. Most people who know me will know my aversion to 'Christian Music' - though I have been known to mildly enjoy what relay worker Steve plays at me! Here's a chance to sneak in a couple of albums that rarely leave my player at the moment, and which frame my theology and fuel my imagination at the moment - if in a less orthodox manner...Com Lag by Radiohead...and Abattoir Blues / The Lyre of Orpheus by Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds. Great stuff, very spiritual and mythological, in a modern kind of way.

  2. Dave,

    I'm with you on this one! I love the book (by CJ Mahaney), and the CD just keeps on reinforcing the awesome truths of the gospel. I also love their Awesome God CD (for kids); my kids can't get enough of it.
