For Steven Curtis Chapman, "The Glorious Unfolding" Shows Life's Journey
Few people know the pain and the promise in that statement better than Steven Curtis Chapman. The past few years have been an incredible journey that Chapman wouldn’t have chosen, yet has taught him so very much. Those lessons permeate every song on Chapman’s new album The Glorious Unfolding.
With the most renowned and most awarded career in Christian music, including 57 Gospel Music Association Dove Awards, five GRAMMYs, 47 No. 1 singles and approaching 11 million albums sold, Chapman doesn’t have a lot left to prove.
“I’m very, very grateful to be given the opportunity to make music and share the things that I feel like God has entrusted to me,” Chapman says. “I don’t take it lightly.”
Amidst celebration of the marriages of his children, the birth of a grandchild and the long road of continued healing over the loss of his daughter Maria, The Glorious Unfolding still feels like a landmark album, being musically inventive, yet bursting with truth, integrity and emotional gravitas in much the same way as The Great Adventure did when that ground-breaking album released in 1992.
