One Silent Night by FFH


I was recently sent FFH's newest release, One Silent Night, a Christmas CD.  I was really excited to get to hear it, since I haven't heard anything new from them in a while.  For a while, their songs where our family's theme songs... through the struggles we endured in ministry they were an uplifting voice that helped us keep our eyes on Jesus.

So, after downloading the CD to my iPod, I forced my family to listen to the CD in the middle of November trying to get us all "in the mood" for Christmas.  We were instantly thrilled with the beautiful harmonies and classic songs.  I love this CD because, not only does it include some beautiful favorite hymns, but it also includes some fun upbeat songs that the whole family with love!    This new CD features: 


BABY IT’S COLD OUTSIDE
JINGLE BELL ROCK
ONE SILENT NIGHT
I’LL BE HOME FOR CHRISTMAS
THE BIRTHDAY OF A KING
O COME O COME EMMANUEL
WINTER WONDERLAND
GLORIOUS IMPOSSIBLE
O LITTLE TOWN OF BETHLEHEM
HEAVEN AND NATURE SING

SHORT BOOK DESCRIPTION:

Many years have passed since civilization's brush with apocalypse. The world's greatest threats have all been silenced. There is no anger, no hatred, no war. There is only perfect peace... and fear. But a terrible secret has been closely guarded for centuries: Every single soul walking the earth, though in appearance totally normal, is actually dead, long ago genetically stripped of true humanity.

Fleeing pursuit, with only moments to live, a young man named Rom stumbles into possession of a vial of blood and a piece of cryptic writing. When consumed, the blood will bring him back to life. When decoded, the message will lead him on a perilous journey that will require him to abandon everything he has ever known and awaken humanity to the transforming power of true life and love.

But the blood will also resurrect hatred, ambition, and greed.

Set in a terrifying, medieval future, where grim pageantry masks death, this tale of dark desires and staggering stakes peels back the layers of the heart for all who dare to take the ride.
