The cross: the single biggest hoax of history or the hope for all humanity?
The wood. The thorns. The nails. Christ's sacrifice has defined the very essence of mankind's faith for the past 2000 years. Max Lucado invites you to re-examine the cross, contemplate its purpose, and celebrate its significance with The Pieces of Passion live CD and DVD combo.
Based on Max's original sermon series, “The Pieces of Passion,” this riveting live recording was first released as He Chose the Nails, the audio companion to the best selling book of the same name. Now, it has been digitally re-mastered and packaged in combination for the first time with the DVD of the live concert.
Returning to its original title, The Pieces of Passion is a powerful, intensely emotional, live praise and worship project running the gamut from acoustic adult contemporary to edgy power ballads, to praise-style gospel, masterfully produced by Bryan Lenox and Glenn Wagner.
Recorded live at Max's church in San Antonio, Oak Hills Church of Christ, this live experience includes the incomparable talents of Twila Paris, Jeff Deyo, Kim Hill, Wes King, and Natalie Grant performing a collection of all-original songs written specifically to match Max's sermon notes. Included are radio chart toppers including the Number 1 hit “When I Remember“ by Kim Hill, “These Hands” by Jeff Deyo, and Natalie Grant's “Because of Love.”
In addition, the Oak Hills Church of Christ choir, under the direction of Jeff Nelson, brings to life several inspiring praise & worship choruses. The entire project is then punctuated by spoken-word segues delivered by Max Lucado in his own inimitable, conversational style.
The 90-minute live concert DVD brings to home television what tens of thousands of Christian music fans across the nation have been hearing via CD and the radio. The Pieces of Passion DVD includes interviews with the artists and Max Lucado, along with other behind-the-scenes footage, plus exclusive dramatic footage from Visual Bible.
The Pieces of Passion shows us that to truly understand who Jesus is, we must first stand at the foot of the cross.
