Fittingly enough, a full complement of contemporary Christian
music stars have been recruited for the soundtrack to Epiphany
Films' Joshua: The Movie, based on
Joseph Grizone's popular book series, which follows the travels of a
Christ-like fellow named Joshua. Like the Joshua stories, Joshua:
The Soundtrack is a positive, uplifting affair, full of
encouragement and songs of hope. The soundtrack consists of 16
tracks, 6 of them new or newly recorded, from the likes of Pete
Orta, Jaci Velasquez, and Michael W. Smith. Each of the new tracks is
stellar, from Orta's "Braver New World" (which calls to mind the
Beatles' Nehru jacket era) to Smith's tender and eloquent "Love Is
Moving." There are plenty of surprises: Point of Grace set aside
their sugary pop for a soulful rendition of the gospel classic "Wings
of a Dove," while country's Brooks & Dunn offer the help-your-brother
anthem "Everyday Heroes." Nicole C. Mullen and Mark Schultz may seem
unlikely duet partners, but their distinctive voices and musical
styles blend nicely on the up-tempo "Faith, Hope & Love." As for the
previously released tracks, many are lesser-known gems like Cindy
Morgan's "I Love You," which keeps Joshua: The Soundtrack from
sounding like another hits collection.
this album is inspirational and gives the listener a good feeling. I hope that others enjoy it just as my aunt and I did.

The soundtrack to Joshua is so great. You can't help but get lost in every song on this CD!! Wes King's excavate will make you cry, Jaci Velasques's innocence will warm your heart (along with her "God so Loved the World), and of course Micheal W. Smith's Love is Moving will have your heart rejoicing!! Plus all the other artists and songs are absolutley remarkable. Don't miss out on this one, you won't regret it. I am new to the contemperary Christian music scene and still love Pop music but this has to be my favorite above all.....
