Risen CD Giveaway

It’s March. It’s cold. It’s a good time for a giveaway.

The newest music album from Sovereign Grace entitled Risen came out last week, and is the best yet (in my humble opinion). But since we girltalkers know next to nothing about music, we asked Mike (our in-house music consultant) to write up a review. Here’s what he had to say:

risenJust in time for Resurrection Sunday, Sovereign Grace Music has masterfully compiled thirteen doctrinally rich and musically appealing songs to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ.

Released March 22nd, the Risen album quickly climbed to 9th place on Amazon’s mp3 downloads. Apparently the news is out and people are enjoying the combination of sound theological lyrics, memorable melodies, and musical excellence that make “Risen” among Sovereign Grace Music’s best albums to date.

Here is the description of the album from the insert:
“He is not here, for he has risen, as he said.” These words, spoken by an angel to the women at Jesus’s tomb, changed history forever. Christ’s resurrection was more than a display of raw supernatural power. It was the single event that assures us that his payment for our sins has been accepted. God’s wrath is satisfied. Death is defeated. The powers of darkness are overcome. Sin’s dominion has been broken. And the life of the age to come has dawned.

The songs on this album celebrate these realities experienced and enjoyed by all who place their faith and hope in Jesus Christ.

As we often do with girltalk givaways, we’d like to give you a gift to give away. So write and tell us who you would like to give a Risen cd to and why, and we’ll pick three winners by tomorrow.
