Dancing in the Minefields

Posted by jon on July 23, 2010 in music and videos |

I enjoy a lot of different types of music but for the most part I prefer the basic singer-songwriter. Among those there is one artist who stands apart. Andrew Peterson is easily one of the best, most unique writers in this generation. Andrew is a writer in the tradition of Rich Mullins, and like Rich he is a modern prophet. What is most notable is Andrew’s ability to take what starts as an everyday observation and turn it back to glorifying God.

This week Andrew’s newest CD, “Counting  Stars”, comes out. It is his first release with his new record label and so there has been a lot more publicity surrounding this record. I was thrilled to see Andrew featured in his first music video.

I know everyone makes music suggestions and for the most part we always ignore it when we get them, but for those who are receptive here are a few must have songs (and their albums) listens from Andrew Peterson:

Family Man (Love & Thunder)

Nothing to Say (Carried Along)

Isn’t it Love (Clear to Venus)

More (The Far Country)

Faith to be Strong (Carried Along)

Canaan Bound (Love & Thunder)

The Chasing Song (Carried Along)

Behold the Lamb of God (the entire album, possibly the best modern work I’ve ever seen)

And this video, Dancing in the Minefields, is the next example of a gifted musician. I can’t wait to get my copy next week. God is Everywhere.
