Christian Country/Blugrass at its Finest  Dec 9, 2005
Interesting blend of materials, featuring old & new songs. Great pickin', as you would expect from a Ricky Skaggs project. Plaintive, hearfelt blugrass singing throughout. Liked the mixture of songs in 3/4 time, songs in minor keys and of course, the blugrass toe tappers. The Billy Graham intro does well to set up "Are You Afraid to Die" as an eternal question humanity must face.
Shreds of his Soul in Every Musical Note  May 18, 2004
Par excellent! Skaggs has left bits and traces of his eternal soul in every lyrical note recorded on this very creamy CD recording. No matter his musical offerings in the past, he has thoroughly outdone himself this time. The strains of bluegrass mixed with Gospel tunes ring the bell of the heart of the listener, appealing to man's inner void that can only be filled by God the Father. The message of the cross has its own magical mystique ("anointing") that draws men and women, boys and girls to its base for life-giving strength. Yet, it matters who died on that cross--as Paul said, Jesus Christ and Him Crucified. You set the crucifixion of the lamb of God into motion, and you won't have to worry about any resurrection. One follows the other. Jesus did an heroic work and authored a book to tell about it. He taught us that where we are weak, then we are strong. No one in his right mind would have ever concocted that a lamb would defeat a wolf! Jesus showed us that meekness and humility is the theme of life. We lose our lives--our pride, our machismo, our works and efforts to save--and we lay them at Jesus' feet. And guess what? Those things that we used to work to do (man-made morality) in order to please God and failed at miserably, turn up later to be fulfilled in real time through us as the Holy Spirit lives holiness and righteousness through us. Those habits that we could not shake fall when we come to Jesus, "all we who are weak and heavily burdened (trying to please God through works,etc.) and [he gives us] rest." Lose your life and you find it. Try to stop sinning before you get to the cross, and you can't. But, then put your faith in the Finished work of Christ, and amazingly, the sin stops because that root desire for the sin is itself gone.
This is the cross of which Ricky Skaggs sings. This cross makes you want to love everybody, even the unlovable. Whatever you do, challenge yourself to get this CD because each song will lift up Jesus, and after all, for you fellow Christians out there, isn't that what the Holy Spirit came to do. I highly recommend the song "Were You There When They Crucified My Lord?"
This is so much fun!  Feb 24, 2004
I bought this CD for my husband who really enjoys bluegrass, and now it is our absolute favorite. I can hardly keep myself from dancing when we turn it on! We listen to it all the time. ALL of the songs are great, which is unusual for any CD. It's a fun way to hear an important message.
Wonderful CD  Apr 29, 2003
I have had this CD for several weeks, and I keep "discovering" new and wonderful songs on it. Another reviewer mentioned eclectic tastes - mine run from bluegrass and southern gospel to Jazz (especially Charley Parker, Ella, and Coltrane) and classical (especially Beethoven and Shostakovich - I love string quartets). However, I got it this album first for its traditional gospel songs, primarily "Hallelujah, I'm Ready to Go" (which I was working on for my own bluegrass group, where I play the string bass and sing). When it comes to gospel, I generally prefer the older songs.

Then, last weekend I "discovered" the lead song "Soldier of the Cross", which I had previously dismissed. This is what I mean: I am really starting to enjoy the range of different kinds of music on this CD, and you will too. I also really appreciate Ricky's obvious deep Christian convictions (of which I had not previously been aware); he writes a moving dedication to Christian warriors throughout the centuries that you've got to read.

I LOVE THIS CD!  Feb 11, 2003
I have an eclectic taste in music --- I really do love all kinds of music... I like EVERYTHING from "Charlie Daniel's "Long Haired Country Boy" to Michael Martin Murphy's "Oh Bury Me Not On the Lone Prairie". I like everything from Gordon Lightfoot's haunting "Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald" to Neil Young's "Keep On Rockin in the Free World". I like all kinds of gospel music too - everything from Jars of Clay's "Tea and Sympathy" to Fernando Ortega's "Lord of Eternity". However, I must admit that Ricky Skaggs and Kentucky Thunder project "Soldier of the Cross" really gets my heart racing and my toe tapping. I very much appreciate the always great traditional songs such as "Were You There" to the less traditional "The Joshua Generation" I will admit that I have a particular weakness for a good ballad - as one who has had the responsibility of Shepherding the Flock of God I especially appreciate "Seven Hillsides" which gives insight into the lonely heart of a preacher with the unenviable task of conducting funerals for the sons and fathers who were lost to the tragedy of war.
