Style: Anthemic modern worship; compare to Delirious, Chris Tomlin, Coldplay, Tim Hughes
Top tracks: "We Are the Free," "Endless Hallelujah," "Magnificent"

With towering, Coldplay-like choruses and reverent ballads, there's an equal emphasis on congregational singing and personal musings, affirming his consistency and connectivity, in spite of sticking pretty close to the usual plot.
