This is Derek Webb's finest moment in my opinion. The preaching and stories between songs are just about worth the price, but the songs themselves are great. The stripped down, bare style makes it even more intimate. The price tag of $1.99 is ridiculously cheap, making this too much of a deal to pass on. It's too bad that Webb lost a lot of this fire (or has redirected it to unfortunate things). Don't let his recent work and views put you off, THIS IS THE REAL DEAL.

This is what it's like to be at a Derek Webb concert. Excellent acoustic sets of some old favorites as new as a preview of what was at the time upcoming material. Some of his best and most challenging songs "I Repent" and "Wedding Dress" appear on this album.

This is a fine record. Derek Webb's sincerity and commitment to God's Word come through in his music. We need to be challenged like this more often in our Christian lives. His vocal on the first track isn't so good, but it gets better from there on. For $4.00, you can't go wrong with this one.

I really enjoyed this Cd, especially listening to Derek Webb's views. A little country, but I prefer to call it folk. It's much deeper than his Caedmon's Call days.

In his latest album, "The House Show," Derek Webb has issued a clarion call to bring Christians into a community of believers who boldly preach the Gospel -- in all of its beauty and offensiveness.The album, recorded in the intimate setting of a living room rather than a concert hall, intersperses challenging lyrics with Webb's up-front theology. Webb's vocals are uncluttered, backed only by his 12-string guitar. The result is the kind of CD you can play over and over to draw you back to Christ when all around you is chaos.Webb, who left Caedmon's Call to bring his message to hundreds of living-room concerts, focuses our attention on parts of the Gospel that are often lost in the Christian obsession with simple salvation. He targets Christ's emphasis on reaching out to others, preaching the Gospel, being truly repentant and letting our great Savior deliver us from the troubles that surround us in modern life.Webb challenges complacent Christians to look deeply into themselves and abandon "the great righteousness that we might prop up as an idol from time to time.""We think we will be able to measure the growth of our spirituality by how little we are sinning, or by how little we can convince ourselves we are sinning," Web says in his introduction to "I Repent."That song quickly assails some values American Christians would prefer to leave unexamined:"I repent, I repent of my pursuit of America's dreamAnd I repent, I repent, of living like I deserve anything Of my house, my fence, my kids, my wifeIn our suburb, where we're safe and white Oh I am wrong and of these things I repent"Lest any listeners feel left out, the song goes on to repent "the way I believe that Im living right, by trading sins for others that are easier to hide."But the positive message that accompanies the song is this: Jesus "knows you better than you're willing to even admit to yourself, but He's forgiven you!"
