The Story: Music Inspired By, witnesses an unprecedented partnership between Zondervan, World Vision, EMI CMG, Provident Label Group, Word Entertainment, Proper Managment, and CAA. With a list like that this CD couldn't be anything but sensational.
The Bible. It’s the foundation of our faith, filled with amazing tales of bravery and betrayal, romance and redemption. These age-old stories teach us valuable lessons about the God we serve and the way He wants us to live, but how well do we really know them?
Award-winning authors Randy Frazee and Max Lucado, who himself has more than 100 million products in print, wanted to make them more accessible and encourage further engagement of the Bible so they partnered with Zondervan to create The Story, which contains 31 chapters (stories) from the Bible told as one seamless story from beginning to end. Additionally, Randy and Max penned new books built around these 31 key stories from the Bible providing further insight into the characters. With these resources as a foundation, Dove Award-winning artist Nichole Nordeman and Dove Award-winning producer Bernie Herms teamed up to give those same timeless stories a modern musical voice. This new two-disc project entitled (Music Inspired By) The Story, is the brainchild of successful artist manager Norman Miller, and features a who’s who of Christian artists, who collectively have sold nearly 75 million albums. With everyone from Amy Grant, Brandon Heath, Mac Powell, and Chris Tomlin to Francesca Battistelli, Bart Millard, Natalie Grant, and Mandisa taking part, (Music Inspired By) The Story features 18 songs and 24 artists in all.
Built on the foundation of The Story, the bestselling book by Zondervan (produced by Hodder and Stoughton in the UK) this CD contains 18 songs written by multiple Dove Award winners Nichole Nordeman and Bernie Herms.
Each song is based on principle biblical characters and stories, lyrically providing a completely new context to familiar scripture and showing how God's story of love and redemption intersects with our story of brokenness and failure together resulting in a new Story, one of hope and rescue.
Musically each song takes you on a journey of introspection, celebration and ultimately user us into a climatic moment of worship to the One who will make all things new.
The Story features a remarkable artist line up including Casting Crowns, Brandon Heath, Amy Grant, Steven Curtis Champman, Michael W Smith and Darlene Zschech.
