The Sunrise - Spread the Word (independent)
The Sunrise in Christianity Today

Style: '70s-style Jesus rock; compare to Phil Keaggy, Paul Clark, John Fischer

Top tracks: "Old & Faded," "The Way to Live," "I Love My Wife"

You sure wouldn't pick up this record for its cover art. Ugh. But if you like Jesus music of the 1970s—Larry Norman, Randy Stonehill, Phil Keaggy, John Fischer, Paul Clark—you'll like this debut project from Cleveland couple James and Rebecca Mileti. Aside from the cover art and a few vocal pitch issues, it's a fine album with pointed lyrics addressing romantic love, social justice, pride, emotional abuse, spiritual transformation, and even an altar call: "You don't need to be scared of him, or think you're not good enough / Whores, lepers, and tax collectors made the cut / So you'll be alright / What will you do? / He desperately wants to be with you."

The link to Christianity Today Magazine:


"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life."

"For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved."

"He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God."

- John 3:16-18.
