Facedown - Click to view!
I watched this British gentleman conduct an hour-long seminar on worship at a local music festival this summer. He emphasized the importance of returning to "face-down worship."

By citing various Old and New Testament passages, he explained how there was an equal emphasis on both standing and kneeling. Read full review...

Where Angels Fear to Tread - Click to view!
Where Angels Fear to Tread, his fourth U.S. release, strays from what the majority of worship artists are creating. Many worship songwriters feel that reinvention (i.e., looking to God through a different thematic "lens" each album) is the best approach when their influence extends to thousands upon thousands.

While Redman rises to a new musical platitude of acoustic honesty and passionate spontaneity, the real focus of this CD isn't Redman, his music or even worship itself--it's all about God. This soul searching began at the youth congregation of Soul Survivor. In the autumn of 1996, music was banned from Soul Survivor as these thousands of youth learned the hard way that worship is a sacrifice of our whole being. The band was invited back, and it's out of this experience that this CD was birthed. Read full review...
