Don't let the over familiar song titles such as "Jesus You Are Lord," "In His Hands" and "John 3:16," blight you from the intricate beauty and power of this Christ-centered record. This is not an album that brings us on a merry-go-round across the world of "I've-heard-it-all-before." It doesn't spin us across the same verbosity of overwrought cliches and the same vignettes of predictable narrative plots of countless songs out there.
Not too long ago, Hillsong Church was just a struggling suburban church that couldn't even afford to purchase its own building. Fast forward to April 24, 2014, they have taken over Times Square's digital billboards in New York City.

With the strategic minds and the invincible force of the Russian army conspicuously weakened, Germany launched its all out massive assault on the Soviet Union leading to more casualties and atrocities imaginable to the human mind.
