I saw Travis Cottrell when he was leading the praise and worship for a Beth Moore conference/weekend, and I was concerned that there would be a lot of "hype", as there sometimes is in large praise and worship settings. Not so with this man. He obviously has an incredible passion for Jesus, and it pours out of his music. His concern was never with "performing" (although he and the people singing with him were amazing); he most wanted to communicate his love for God, and encourage others to abandon themselves to Him.
This CD is great-- I especially love the songs "In Christ Alone/ Solid Rock", "Blessed by the Name", and "My Passion" (which he wrote, and it is the reason I purchased the CD).
I would recommend this to anyone who longs for an intimate time with God as they sing His praises...
You can't help but lift your hands for praise! Oct 10, 2005
This CD is a great CD to add to any Praise and Worship collection. The songs have a mix of group worship versus solos. The voices blend together to just invite you to sing and life up your hands in praise.
I first heard this CD during a Beth Moore conference. All of these songs were done and I think they are just as powerful as listening to them in your car as they are with 5000 women singing together.
One of the things I like about these song is that as a female I can actually sing them in two different ranges which is neat to be able to sing in my car depending on my mood.
Each person will have a favorite. My mom's is God is Great and mine is ALive Forever Amen. There are NO bad tracks on the CD and you will not be dissapointed.
If you ever have a chance to attend a Beth Moore conference, I would recommend it highly. She is a great speaker, but Travis has some really great stories to tell that make you feel like you have known him for long. I think after a conference, listening to his CD's (and I do own more than one of his too) is an even greater joy.
WOW! If you're looking for one good worship CD.... Jun 23, 2005
...this is it! I wasn't familiar with Travis' work before attending a Beth Moore conference recently. He just blows me away! This CD is very easy to listen to and sing along with. I am so uplifted by God's Grace everytime I listen! There is a nice blend of different styles - contemporary, a little gospel, and even some traditional arrangements. As another reviewer stated the whole CD just flows very nicely from one song to the next. It's a blessing to me.

There is a holy flow in this work as one song smoothly transitions into the next. It starts with upbeat, driving selections, then segues into a mellow soft conclusion. One of the songs that mores me most on this album is "Friend of God." Like all effective praise and worship albums every element is significant, the instrumentation, lyrics, arrangement of the songs, and engineering. It all comes together on this album.
Integrity Media has a reputation for quality products and this one lives up to the corporate standard. Cut 9, "Blessed Be Your Name" is another highlight of the CD. Overall, this will be a nice addition to anyone's audio library.
I absolutely dare you.... Apr 3, 2005
to sit still and NOT worship during this CD! If you love genuine P&W, then you can't miss with this. It's my favorite new P&W CD and I can't stop listening to it over and over again. If you don't own any other Travis CD's, I recommend them ALL. He is completely gifted by the Lord and an incredible worship leader and LIVE...OH MY! You feel the presence of the Lord for sure!
Isn't God great that He would give us such incredible gifts that can be used to honor Him!!!
