When it was time to schedule these sessions, I only had about 5 songs ready. But I felt like the Lord wanted me to move ahead, so I set up the sessions anyway. Lo and behold, that week I wrote 5 songs that are my favorites on the CD! A lot of the vocals are the ‘live’ vocals that I did as we were tracking, so we got a lot of that fresh feeling out of it. I tried to keep it simple, but the basic tracks were so good (drum tracks by Scott Williamson, Mark Leniger and Luke Pugliese), I got a bit carried away and some of these songs came out even better than I was expecting. I’m extremely pleased with it. - Neal Morse

Send the Fire is available now from Radiant Records. Click here to order!

The Case for Christmas DVD

Added on 1-18-2006
Neal recently flew to the West Coast to be part of a national broadcast with authors and speakers Lee Strobel and Mark Mittelberg, sponsored by an organization called CCN. This event, which was hosted live at Calvary Community Church in Westlake Village, California, was seen simultaneously via satellite at about a thousand locations throughout North America. It started with Neal doing a short piano and acoustic set of Christmas-related music, followed by a talk from Lee Strobel, a former atheist, spiritual skeptic, and the legal affairs editor for the Chicago Tribune. Lee, who wrote the newly released book called The Case For Christmas: A Journalist Investigates the Identity of the Child in the Manger, told about his investigation into the facts behind the Christmas story and where that research led him. Then Strobel and Mittelberg hosted a live Q & A time, addressing a variety of questions about the holiday and its history that were emailed and faxed in from people at the various sites. It ended with Neal doing an instrumental version of the classic Christmas carol, “Hark The Herald Angels Sing.”

“Regardless of what you think about this topic,” Mittelberg said later,“it was a fascinating discussion that’s well worth watching and thinking about—and how can you go wrong when you’ve got Neal’s music at the beginning and ending of the event!”

The DVD is available to purchase for $10 at the Church Communication Network.
