A lot of people are confused by the phrase “becoming a Christian.” What does that mean? Aren’t Christians born, the same way Muslims, or Jews, or Hindus are born? In a sociological, nominal sense, yes; but Scripture indicates that becoming a Christian in the spiritual sense requires a conscious decision on the part of the believer to invite Christ (or the Spirit of Christ) into his/her life (heart, mind, what-have-you). I took this step – after much soul-searching and primarily to impress a girl I was particularly fond of – in 1973, little knowing that I was buying a ticket on an amazing, frightening, exhilarating, challenging, and very rough roller-coaster ride through spiritual realms of whose existence I had previously been unaware. The songs in this collection are musical markers of that journey, and I invite you to make of them what you will.
