"Worship is not a fad. It's a genuine movement of God to bring us closer to Him." --Mac Powell
It's a statement that rings true with Atlanta rockers Third Day because they've witnessed it first-hand - not once, but over and over again. Since the band's beginnings, Third Day has unabashedly and seamlessly weaved elements of worship into its musical repertoire, both in the studio and on stage in front of hundreds of thousands each year. It's in those live settings, especially over the course of the past few years, that Third Day has watched how worship has impacted and transformed a new generation.
It's that same inspiration that fueled the band's newest project, Offerings II: All I Have To Give, the follow-up to the original Offerings album that garnered critical acclaim and struck a chord with audiences everywhere. Like the first Offerings record, now destined to be a worship classic, Offerings II: All I Have To Give is a cohesive mix of six live favorites recorded on the "Come Together" tour, and six new studio cuts cleverly crafted in a brief eight days. The group once again joined producer Monroe Jones and found a comfortable setting in Atlanta's famed Southern Tracks studio, which has been the birthplace of recordings by Bruce Springsteen (The Rising), Train, Stone Temple Pilots, Bob Dylan, Aerosmith and The Black Crows, to name just a few.
The studio sessions produced five brand new worship songs including the anthemic May Your Wonders Never Cease, the singable Anything, a Psalm-like tune called The Everlasting, the worshipful Offering, and a rock-flavored tribute to worship music titled Sing a Song.
In the spirit of the first Offerings record which included covers of Bob Dylan's Saved and the crowd-pleasing These Thousand Hills, originally recorded by Jacob's Trouble, this time around Third Day chose to cover another of their favorite worship songs, You Are So Good to Me, by Waterdeep.
Offerings II: All I Have To Give also includes stirring live renditions of such Third Day favorites as Show Me Your Glory and Nothing Compares, both from the group's Come Together project as well as the crowd-pleasing, live medley featuring Give, Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus, U2's With or Without You and Your Love Oh Lord. Another album highlight is Third Day's moving rendition of the late Rich Mullins classic, Creed, a song that has special meaning to the band.
