All Music Guide - William Ruhlmann
Donald Lawrence begins right at the beginning on Law of Confession, as "The Word of the Lord" employs the opening line of Genesis, the first book of the Bible, "In the beginning was the word." From there, accompanied by his fervent choir, he addresses the needs and faith of a congregation with which he seems to be entirely in synch.

Indeed, in the concluding "There Is a King in You," he preaches self-esteem and empowerment to his troubled congregation. "You come from royalty," he declares, which ought to help them with both their spiritual and economic concerns in 2009.
