From the pages of Randy Frazee and Max Lucado's retelling of Biblical narratives in The Story, a spectacular recording was created. This collection includes songs written by Dove Award-winning artist Nichole Nordeman and Dove Award-winning producer Bernie Herms, and performed by a virtual “who's who” of Christian artists: Amy Grant, Chris Tomlin, Natalie Grant, Steven Curtis Chapman, Francesca Battistelli, and a dozen more. Featuring 13 songs from this extraordinary recording, the selections include both solos and duets and are accessibly arranged for medium voice. Each song is written from a first-person perspective, and recounts the struggles and victories experienced by various Old and New Testament characters such as Job, Ruth and Naomi, Moses, David, Mary Magdalene, and Paul.
Songs include: Bend (Joseph – by Brandon Heath) • Born for This (Esther – by Mandisa) • Broken Praise (Job – by Todd Smith from Selah) • I'm with You (Ruth & Naomi – by Nichole Nordeman and Amy Grant) • It Must Be You (Moses – by Bart Millard from MercyMe) • Who But You (Abraham & Sarah – by Mark Hall and Megan Garrett from Casting Crowns) • Your Heart (David – by Chris Tomlin) • Alive (Mary Magdelene – by Natalie Grant) • Be Born in Me (Mary – by Francesca Battistelli) • The Great Day (Second Coming – by Michael W.
