Chris McClarney: God Is Our Defender

When as a boy you spend your formative years moving every couple of years to a new place and to a new church, while watching your Baptist preacher-father burning out in the ministry, seeds are planted in your heart.

Now, with the release of Defender, McClarney delivers one of the most soulful modern-worship collections in recent years—a triumphant proclamation that God's sleeves are rolled up and He's working it all out for our good —even if we can't see it. read more
