Customer Reviews

The best of Steven Curtis Chapman in one album...period!This album is not a rock album...yet it's not a acoustic album completely either. It has the best elements of what has catapulted SCC to the top of Christian music. Overall though the album doesn't really deviate too much from past records in sound. To me that's fine. Songs like 'Love Take Me Over', 'Take another Step', Michael and Maria, and of course the title track Glorious Unfolding and make something beautiful are after one listen my favorites, although pretty much all could be lol. I have followed this artist through his darkest of times after the loss of his daughter Maria and I can say, He still has such strong faith in the Lord and this album proclaims that well. The strings and light guitar work on the closing track 'Feet of Jesus' is really good. Music like this just reminds us as believers of that glorious day we will see Him face to face and how Jesus is completing his story in and through us right now in the day to day life we call here and now. If you want music that just merely makes you feel good and rock out, you may want to go elsewhere. But, if you love introspective and reflective music that brings you to God and reminds you of who He is....this is a jewel not worth passing up.5ListenWhenever someone has been through tragedy I sit up and listen to what they have to say. They know true pain and suffering. How did they deal with it. SCC gives us a glimpse of his journey through tragedy in this album. It's uplifting and meaningful. Not like other artists who sing about suffering but have never experienced it. The song Take Another Step is an encouragement. This album is classic SCC, but he has been refined by fire. It's worth buying.5Amazing and EncouragingI was much anticpating this new album and once again Steven Curtis Chapman did not let me down. As I have been a follower of his music since he came out so long ago, his songs have encouraged and inspired me in my walk with the LORD, and this album is no different. I LOVE the fact that he is NOT afraid to mention the name of Jesus in his songs and you can feel the immense emotions in what he is singing about. His words are a reality to him...not just a song he chose, but one that was entirely written from the heart.The first song "Glorious Unfolding" in itself, brings hope to any person who is battle weary from spiritually fighing in this walk of faith with the LORD Jesus Christ. To really take into grasp that God does see the bigger picture and that he that hath begun the good work in the life of every true and obediant believer, he will complete it.As you continue to go through the song list you can't help but Praise the Lord, whether it be with a joyful shout in agreement, crying because you can relate with the passing of a loved one, but than with the song "See you in a little while" knowing that we as Holy Ghost filled believers have the hope, the blessed hope that we will see our loved one's who have gone on before us.As always, Steven writes a song to his wife "Together" and you can't help but thank the LORD that God joined them together and that the two of them decided to hold true and fight for their marriage; and to keep the scripture alive in saying "What God has joined together, let no man put it assunder." I'm so grateful for their fight in keeping their home and family joined tightly in the corporate walk with Jesus.This Album is a must to any person who needs to know that there is hope beyond the battle of your walk. God promises us the time of rest, a time of renewal and a time of Joy, and in this album, it's such a difference from "Beauty will Rise." This is the beginning of a new era for the Chapman family...and I'm so grateful that he uses the gift God has given him to encourage the Body of Christ.You won't be disappointed!5This cd is gloriousI have enjoyed Steven Curtis Chapman for 15 yrs now. This cd shows his spiritual journey and growth. Liife is not exactly what you have planned but keep SEEing with the eyes of faith and life will unfold the way God has planned. My favs are: "Take Another Step" and "A Little More Time to Love". Thank you Steven and Mary Beth for sharing your life, love,joys and sorrows over these years.I am a widow and feel like you are holding my hand thru this journey.5Great CD, a mix of Contemporary-Christian sounds and classic Steven Curtis Chapman soundThis CD was really enjoyable. There are a lot of tracks about overcoming struggles and embracing God's plan for your life. It sounds a bit more mainstream-Christian than some of SCC's previous CDs which for some people is good and for some people is bad. However, it still definitely sounds like Steven Curtis Chapman. Personally, I like the CD a lot and if I could travel back in time and decide whether or not to buy it again, I would definitely buy it again.5Review of Steven Curtis Chapman's "The Glorious Unfolding"Prime Cuts: Michael and Maria, Together, A Little More time for LoveIf album titles are statements about God's claim on the lives of the artist, the monikers of Steven Curtis Chapman's portfolio detail a man who has fearlessly abandon his life to God. Album titles of such as "For the Sake of the Call," "The Great Adventure," "Dive," "Beauty Will Rise," "Declaration" and "re: creation" spell out a life so secured in Jesus Christ that nothing seem to faze him in diving into God's call. Life therefore becomes an adventure of boundless possibilities where even beauty could be resurrected out of ugliest evil. Chapman's latest album epithet "The Glorious Unfolding" adds a further chapter to his storied career of lived-out faith. "The Glorious Unfolding" as a song as well as the controlling theme of the record remind us that life is not a "samsara" of meaningless cycles. Rather, life is an epic of how God unravels his story of salvation from creation to glorification. And by His grace, God has allowed us fallible human beings to play a major role in this breathtaking story. With each song Chapman opens up our eyes to see how God as the master narrator works behind the scenes unfolding His story within the ordinary happenstances of our lives, our worship and our relationships."The Glorious Unfolding" is Chapman's first album of all original material in seven years. But within this intervening time, he has had cut an acoustic collection of some of his biggest hits ("re:creation"), a rootsy country hymns ensemble ("Deep Roots") and two Number One Hits compilation discs. Kicking off in high gear is the energetic lead single "Love Take Me Over." Though Chapman's hiatus into the more acoustically driven sonic direction was much beloved, it is refreshing to hear Chapman returning back his brand of pop-rock that first brought him to the dance. With deliberate pauses, a cuttingly fresh guitar sound and a "woo-oah" catchy chorus, "Love Take Me Over" is a prayer to God to overwhelm our thoughts, actions and words with God's love. The title cut "The Glorious Unfolding" literally opens in cinematic aplomb where the electronic ethereal sounds slowly glides into a glorious opening as Chapman reminds us that there are no accidental happenstances in our lives. Rather, each vignette of life is deftly crafted by the Master Storyteller to narrate His grander narrative."Something Beautiful" shows that Chapman has not lost any momentum as far as today's latest sounds are concerned with its fresh Coldplay beats over Chapman's usual guitar-driven flair. Chapman uncovers a seminal aspect of God's story with "A Little More Time to Love." God did not place us on this earth for some navel-gazing business. Rather, we were created to spread his love; don't let the gentle piano backing belie "A Little More Time for Love" of this powerful message. Considering the ordeal of what the Chapmans went through in the last few years when their daughter Maria was lost to a horrendous car accident, "Michael and Maria" takes on a new teary-eyed perspective. Chapman's detour into country music earlier this year has equip him well for "Michael and Maria"--- a country-style narrative ballad that wrestles with the pain of loss in ways that are palatably graceful and sensitivity heartfelt.Pleasantly welcoming is the higher quotient of ballads on this new record relative to Chapman's earlier efforts. Somehow reminisce of Chapman's stalwart "I'll Be There" is "Together." "Together" is a romantic string-orchestrated ballad that doesn't have the light-weightiness of many of today's love songs. Rather, it is the imbued with a maturity that comes with the years of seeking God as a couple together. Though "The Glorious Unfolding" faults a little on the predictable side of Chapman, it is still an indispensable record as it unfolds the greatest story of history. And when Chapman gets into the story telling booth his eloquence as expressed through these songs is peerless.4Beautiful!As always, SCC made yet another incredible album with, "The Glorious Unfolding". I pre-ordered the album and I've been listening to it non-stop, absorbing every song in my heart.I lost two children the same year SCC and his family lost little Maria (2008). In a very bittersweet way, God has used SCC's pain of losing Maria as a way to minister to my own grieving heart as the years continue forward in grief. I know some reading this relate to that very well. I'm not a stranger to grief, but nothing can ever prepare you for the loss of your own child(ren). Every album SCC has produced since "This Moment: Cinderella edition", has spoken to my heart right where I was in my grieving. That's how you know SCC is the real deal! The "Cinderella" album will always hold a very special place in my heart, though.You can tell the pain of losing Maria is still very fresh on his heart, but time has brought him to a new place in his grieving. He is healing, even though the pain of losing Maria will never go away. No one should ever expect a parent to "get over" the loss of a child(ren). Time slowly heals a broken heart, but until you are reunited with them, your heart is not restored. As you listen to this album, that's the message you will gain. "The Glorious Unfolding" is coming and we won't have to wait much longer for that restoration. You can feel that message radiate through your heart, mind, and soul as you listen to it, because Jesus is being magnified through it all!The sound of this album is a perfect blend of what I remember of him from the 90s and his newer millennial albums. If you have several or all of SCC's albums, then you'll recognize many of his previous songs in this album. For instance, "Only One and Only You" reminds me of the song he wrote for his oldest daughter, "Fingerprints of God". "SEE You in a Little While" is clearly related to the previous "SEE", both of which made me cry and smile at the same time. "Love Take Me Over" reminds me of an even more upbeat version of "No Better Place" and "Live Out Loud". "Feet of Jesus" reminds me of songs he usually ends his albums with, such as "Treasure of Jesus".In another words, if you love SCC's music, you will not be disappointed with this album. Every song is beautifully written, well thought out, and performed! Be rest assured, this album is still entirely unique from all the rest, but in typical SCC style we all love. He is a remarkable music artist! This CD is definitely going to get a lot of mileage. I love it! :)Lastly, one song that stuck out to me was, "Michael and Maria". Maria is clearly his daughter, but Michael, from what I've read, is the son of a friend, who died in a skateboarding accident. This is definitely the usual huge heart of SCC. He has done this for friends on previous albums. I thought the song was very beautiful and healing to the grieving soul! It deeply touched mine. My heart goes out to the parents (and loved ones) of Michael. I am truly very, very sorry for your precious loss! May God continue to comfort you and the Chapman family!And thank you, Steven Curtis Chapman and family, for ministering to my heart in ways you will never know this side of eternity! May God continue to richly bless your family!Enough of my ramblings. You will not be disappointed, if you like SCC's music, I promise! Then again, SCC has been my favorite Christian artist since 1995, so maybe I'm a little bias. :)5Solid album with a few repetitive tones.After seeing SCC in concert a few weeks ago, I decided to purchase the album. I've been a fan of his music for over 20 years, but didn't know he had a new album released. I was pleasantly surprised. The album is very good, though a few songs get repetitive. 3 songs end with a similar "vocals + drums" acoustic style, which works for each song, but when they're all grouped on the same album, becomes noticeable. Still, the album is great, emotional, & fun.4I never get tired of listeningSteven Curtis Chapman has been a favorite of mine since he recorded his first album. This album is another great one, so classically SCC. When I listen to other artists, I typically only like the first few songs on the album. With SCC, I listen start to finish (and then usually start it all over again). There isn't a dud on the whole thing. If you like SCC, you definitely need this.5Not disappointedSteven Curtis Chapman's music is timeless. He always writes and sings to the glory of God about real life struggles. I also enjoy how most of his CD's include a song in tribute to his wife and this CD is no exception. He continues to work through the pain of losing his beloved daughter Maria through his music but the songs feel more hopeful as he sings of the glorious reality that they will be together again.5
