Bringin' back the memories with my favorite Petra album

Originally released in 1989, this album was one of the first rockin' Praise & Worship album. It paved the way for Third Day, David Crowder, and more. I can remember being 17, listening to this in my 1986 Chrysler Laser, turning the volume up to "11" and jamming to "I Love the Lord". Too bad I was speeding and didn't see that cop... I will always cherish the memories of seeing Petra many, many times in concert. If you were a teenager in the late 80's-early 90's and need some rockin' Jesus filled music, check this one out.

This was one of the first rock praise and worship albums, and for their listeners, was a bit of a departure at the time for Petra. They definitely paved the way for Dave Crowder, Third Day, and company. A solid Petra record.

My Favorite Petra Album

This has always been my favorite Petra moves your soul closer to God (if that's what you're looking for)...especially "Salvation Belongs To Our God".

I just told my two youngest kids tonight that there is no status quo with God. You are either moving closer to Him or farther away by default...and I'm no exception. In my most difficult times of life over the last 20 years Petra's songs have never failed to ignite my spirit and help to rebuild my faith.

Petra is one of the most successful Christian rock bands ever, a veritable institution whose name (taken from the Greek word for "rock") has come to reflect not only their music, but their staying power as well, even in spite of Christian radio's reluctance to program their brand of loud, slick arena rock. Petra was formed in 1972 by guitarist Bob Hartman, who was attending the Christian Training Center in Fort Wayne, IN at the time; he recruited several fellow students — guitarist/vocalist...
