This was a rare occasion where Hollywood put out a movie with a great gospel soundtrack. If you haven't seen the film, you're missing out on a special treat. It's about a man who loses faith and finds it again. Steve Martin stars as a burned-out charlatan evangelist who comes to a town that hasn't had rain in a long time. Martin finds his own faith throughout the course of the plot.
The highlight is the music though. Cliff Eidelman did a great job of putting this soundtrack together. All the music is upbeat and heartening, and it will have you up and singing from the first track. Whether you are one of the faithful or not, these gospel sounds will put a smile on your face and a bright note in your day.
