iTunes Review

Family tragedy and the healing promise of God provide the backdrop for Steven Curtis Chapman’s life-affirming counterpoint to 2009’s more somber Beauty Will Rise. A sense of renewed hope and transcendence can be heard in both the optimistic tenor of the lyrics and the bright, acoustic-based sound of the tracks. Chapman’s vocals have kept their youthful vivacity even as his perspective as a songwriter has matured. The combination of strength, tenderness, and wisdom heard in tunes like “SEE You in a Little While” (written for his late grandmother) and “Michael and Maria” (honoring the memory of a family friend) reflect life’s hard lessons as well as an abiding faith. The sweet, baroque-tinged “Only One and Only You” and the warm piano ballad “Together” capture a sunny tone as they offer loving portraits of Chapman’s daughter Shaoey and wife, Mary Beth. From the jaunty clap-along beat of “Take Another Step” to the boisterous pop feel of “Love Take Me Over” and the rootsy folk-hymn quality of “Feet of Jesus,” SCC keeps The Glorious Unfolding musically interesting and reaffirming.

Customer Reviews


I just listened to the entire CD.... Thank you SCC for continuing to make music and for blessing us with your gift of song writing. I have followed your music and story most of my Christian walk which began when I was in high school. As an adult I have always been blessed by the songs you write for MB on each album and look forward to the one in each album about her:). I have felt your pain from the moment I heard about Maria... This CD is a beautiful testimony of God's faithfulness in giving you the strength and heart to continue to share your music with us! Thank you!


Just heard the whole album from start to finish on his SoundCloud account. It was great! Classic SCC. A little electronically heavy, but only in spots, not very often. Really good stuff. I'm excited to buy the album when it comes out! Keep up the good work, Steven! :)

Glorious Unfolding is fabulous!

Buy the entire album!
