Since the release of their first 45s in 1972, 2nd Chapter of Acts, consisting of siblings Annie Herring, Nelly Greisen, and Matthew Ward, has been synonymous with Jesus Music.

Millions of Spotify streams stand a testimony of their enduring popularity with lovers of classic CCM.

The album featured an all-star cast of musicians including Michael Omartian, Koinonia's Abraham Laboriel, and Grammy-nominated Richard Souther. This release marks the first time this album has been issued in any format since 1991.

The Roots of a Movement

It's important to recognize and appreciate trailblazers in any arena of life. They are the people who enhance our quality of life and enrich us all with their contributions. When it comes to the burgeoning world of CCM that we find coming to life as Jesus Music in the 70s, few acts exemplify the trailblazer moniker better than 2nd Chapter of Acts. Their commitment to making honest music about Jesus that was relevant to the culture around them is obvious in every song. 

Their third LP, Mansion Builder, is no exception to the standard 2nd Chapter of Acts fans had come to expect from them. Recording with their touring band, "The Band called David," this record is chock full of tight playing and fantastic arrangements that allow the band to shine without ever overshadowing the message. Buck Herring's production here is a masterwork in the sound of the era. Every track on this one is a winner but highlights include the funky praise of "Psalm 93" and "Rainbow" along with a beautiful rendition of Keith Green's brilliant "Make My Life a Prayer to You."   

Longtime fans will be incredibly pleased with how this new remaster sounds. It's like new life breathed into these great classic songs. If you've never heard this album before, you're in for a real treat as you experience it for the first time on this CD release. This album serves as a great reminder that the Christian youth of the 70s were standing tall and saying that Jesus and rock music could go hand in hand. This album can sit next to Keith Green, Randy Stonehill, and Larry Norman in anyone's collection as a testament to what God was doing in rock music at the time. Get a hold of Mansion Builder "and let the praises flow like a river..."
