Leaders make the indescribable visible. Isaiah's words, for instance, brought comfort to a defeated nation and transformed a people's imagination, empowering them to mount up with wings like eagles. Those words bear fruits today, capturing a post-modern visionary's heart, urging Chris Tomlin to call together God's people for life-renewing worship. "I feel as though we're like this landing strip in the desert for our great, incredible God to arrive on; a way for Him to come into people's lives," Tomlin says of the album's metaphorical moniker inspired in part by Isaiah 40. Tomlin's third studio record and first in two years, Arriving demonstrates a Christian's glad surrender meeting God's welcoming arms. Tomlin's undeniable energy is charismatic and contagious. Avoiding the trappings of public performance, Chris stands beside the people he serves, raising his voice to God with them so that they share God's presence together. Credited with venerable church choruses such as "Forever," "We Fall Down," and "The Wonderful Cross," Tomlin is considered one of this era's top songwriters for the church with five songs in CCLI's Top 60 and four more in the service's Top 500. With millions singing his songs weekly, Chris is recognized as a pivotal voice of today's modern expression of Christian worship. Arriving rocks with inspiring, guitar-driven pop melodies reflecting the roots traditions of Austin, Texas, where it was recorded and home to the church Tomlin co-founded, Austin Stone Community Church. The project's raw, straightforward lyrics are knotted tight with hooks as big and broad as the Lone Star state sky. Producer Ed Cash (Caedmon's Call, Kathy Mattea, Bebo Norman) brings his signature touch to the tracks, revealing that the talent pool is deeper than even the artist knew.

"Although I normally write Christian reviews of books, I have a love for solid, biblically-based music. This latest CD by Chris Tomlin is one of the best I have heard. When I make that remark it is from a different perspective than many of the young "whippersnappers" here, for I remember the likes of Love Song, Second Chapter of Acts, and Keith Green. I've been listening to "contemporary" Christian music for 25 years, and Tomlin is quickly becoming one of my favorite artists of that entire time span.
I highly recommend this CD to the younger folks, as well as to the older folks like me who are products of the Jesus movement. This small investment will yield huge returns in strengthened personal praise and worship."

"Chris Tomlin is not new to the modern Christian music scene, but this album definitely indicates his arrival as a rising star. It is probably the strongest worship album I have heard this year because it has so many strong songs on it. The album delivers from the first song - Indescribable to the last, You do all things well.
Chris is known as a great worship leader who has been involved in some of the Passion and One Day festivals, but it is nice to see that he is creating his own voice and finding his own place among the stars of modern Christian music.
I highley recommend this album to any Chris Tomlin fan. If you are not familiar with his songs, this is a great starting place. Or, if you like the Passion CDs, and/or One Day albums you will definitely enjoy this one as well."

"Enough said about Chris Tomlin's latest album, Arriving. I don't want to repeat what others have already stated but would just like to add another "5 stars" and my own opinion about this worship collection. Songs like Indescribable, Holy is the Lord and How Great is our God are songs I can never stop listening to, whether it's in the car, at home or in my cubicle. It's packed with powerful words that will thrill you away with the Lord. Along with the songbook, you too can learn how to play these songs on your guitar. Other great songs such as Unfailing Love, The Way I Was Made, and All Bow Down are songs that gets better every time. You may not like some songs at first, like I did when I first heard it, but after awhile, the words clicked in and everything just makes sense. The only down side to this cd is the fact that it's too short (less than 50 min). But still, that is a minor problem. I don't care whether you borrow it, rent it, download it or buy it, just get a hold of it and listen to it. It's worth every second you spend listening to this album."
