Reviewed by Martin I Smith

Jesus Calling is a book of daily devotionals, unique in that author Sarah Young writes from the first person perspective of Jesus, emphasising that it is Jesus calling one to a life of discipleship. It's an approach that's been appreciated by many, including the Christian artists that appear on this CD - all of whom share songs that have been influenced by the book. The resulting 12 track ensemble is an agreeable enough gathering of big names, from Chris Tomlin to Amy Grant. It includes a personal favourite of mine, "Jesus Will Meet You There", as found on Stephen Curtis Chapman's brilliant 'Beauty Will Rise', and there are new offerings from Luminate, Matthew West and Robbie Seay Band (whose "O Great Love" is an accomplished blend of classic hymnal and modern praise music). All well and good, however, as it isn't clear how the album serves to expand the larger project of the book, the collection lacks purpose or direction. It would have been natural enough to link the songs with some corresponding devotional literature, making the connection between the music and Jesus Calling explicit, but no such attempt has been made. Without capitalising on any feature that would make this venture unique, you're left with "yet another compilation album". Though not bad, it is unnecessary.
