A Ransom for Many

A Ransom for Many consists of 18 Scripture memory songs, including two written by Stephen Altrogge. The Scriptures chosen for this second Hide the Word album focus on the themes of The Gospel, God's Sovereignty, God's Love, and Love for Others.

The album features vocals by Chris McCrea, Rochelle Calvetti, Stacy Pomroy, Phil Kim, Chris Wright, Ian Murphy and Kristi Altrogge. Exciting musical contributions were made by Chris McCrea, Stephen Altrogge, Barry Little and Rich Gunderlock.

Musically and production-wise, Hide the Word 2: A Ransom for Many is a big step up from Hide the Word 1, not only because of the contributions of others, but because of the use of drum loops (instead of the drum machine used on Hide the Word 1). All Scriptures are from the NIV. Price: $10.99
