Heath McNease - The Weight of Glory

I recently downloaded Heath McNease's new album, The Weight of Glory. If the title rings bells with you, you have heard it before. Heath's new album is his reflections on CS Lewis best know books including:

  • The Great Divorce, 
  • A Grief Observed, 
  • Mere Christianity (focusing on the Liar, Lunatic or Lord quote)
  • The Problem Of Pain, 
  • The Four Loves - poetically he sums up the four loves as the love that made him grow; the love that made him bold, the love that made him whole, the love that saved his soul.
  • Screwtape Letters, 
  • Edmund (centred on the betrayal of Edmund in the Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe), 
  • Perelandra, 
  • Till We Have Faces, 
  • Surprised By Joy, 
  • The World's Last Night, and 
  • Weight Of Glory.
His lyrics beautifully capture the essence of these books (and is a great intro to his writings.  The music covers a broad range of genre's mostly folk, rock and blues, with some spoken word or rap in Mere Christianity. 

Mostly because of the intelligent lyrics and how easy it is to listen to I definitely recommend the album.
