Ryan Stevens is a given! “In the Light” is actually Charlie Peacock…DC Talk covered it.. Benjamin Gate was off the charts!!! “What If I Stumble?” is a great track and my other favorite in the vein is Steve Taylor’s “I Just Wanna Know”. “Jesus Freak” is the jam!!! I’m a DC Talk fan from ’87-8! I have every CD and saw them multiple times. I FINALLY got to see Toby as a solo artist in ’20.
