"This a highly interesting selection from about 6 different gospel albums that Dion recorded in the 1980's. 2 of the songs,, Sweet Surrender and Truth Will Set You Free earned their way into Dion's boxed set collection of greatest hits, and You Need A Love , along with Train For Glory , probably belong in that boxed set as well. Sweet Surrender, in my opinion, is one of Dion's most memorable songs, and I rank it right up there with John Lennon's Imagine.
For those familiar with Dion's personal life, Center Of My Life takes on a special significance, and Still in the Spirit is also a first rate song. The liner notes by Little Steven of the E Street Band are yet another reminder of the musical link between Dion and Bruce Springsteen. The only reason I did not give this cd 5 stars is because "best of" compilations should not be rated on the same scale as an album of songs that were all recorded at the same time - it is an unfair comparison. But this cd is an excellent showcase of the gospel side of Dion, and can be enjoyed with or without any religious fervor."

"I loved it. I recomend the other two gospel albums (well 4 actually) Inside Job/Only Jesus AND I Put Away My Idols/Kingdom in the Street.
Get them two instead!"
