Overview

If you want to know why Steven Curtis Chapman has garnered more awards than any other Christian music star, look no further than 1992's The Great Adventure. Chapman shows his stuff on a lively, full-bodied pop collection that reminds us why we love the guy so much. The title cut sets the album's tone, offering a rallying cry to "saddle up your horses! We've got a trail to blaze!" Chapman's "great adventure" begins with the realization that a life lived for Christ, far from being one of dour "long-faced religion," is one of boundless freedom and joy. "That's Paradise" is a perfect example of Chapman's sunny take on faith. Rather than focusing on the afterlife, he offers a rousing reminder that being a Christian is a day-to-day call. Chapman, the avowed family man, always offers up a song to his wife, Mary Beth, and "Go There with You" is classic SCC: sweet and tender, never sappy. All in all, quintessential Chapman. Lisa Zhito

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Brian Mansfield
Chapman flirts with country, rap, and Springsteenian rock on his most ambitious project, both musically and lyrically. Includes guest appearances from Ricky Skaggs, DC Talk, and BeBe Winans.
