I’ve waited a long time for a record from Jon Thurlow. The fact that it’s just piano (a real one at that!) and voice is even better. From the first notes to the last it’s an act of worship and a work of art. What a great offering to Jesus.
My favorite track right now is “Equality with God.” It has a chorus that cuts you to the heart with lyrics like, “And it’s the very same thing that cast the devil from Your presence / The very same thing that tripped up Adam and Eve / And it’s the very same thing that I struggle with inside of me…” The vulnerability of saying, “Hey, this is something I struggle with, too…I’m not perfect” is so refreshing and reminds us that, “No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man.” (1 Corinthians 10:13).
Musically, the mix of styles and the sophistication of the harmony while still being accessible is great. The Lord’s gifting in Jon is evident and clear.
I would highly recommend this album and encourage its use in times of prayer and worship. It will bring you great enjoyment — it’s done that for me!
