Here's what you get with this exquisite little blessing: Willie, his fragile yet utterly earnest voice, his peculiar and passionate phrasing, his unmatched gut-string guitar, his sister Bobbie on graceful piano, and a refreshing set of sacred songs. So what are you waiting for? --Marc Greilsamer

"This album is both inspirational and technically perfect. I think it is only second to a CD I have since lost entitled, Healing Hands of Time" by Willie. Could anyone help me with info on how to obtain this album to add to my collection?"
Good simple gospel music, horrible cd release.

"I prefer this record to The Troublemaker. They are both filled with great gospel songs. This record is much more intimate instead of a sounding like a jam session. So I'd give the music 4 stars.
As a CD reissue, I give this 0 stars. It's really pitiful. This CD is a reissue of the Family Bible LP from 1980. They changed the order which I don't mind, but they dropped "An Evening Prayer" which is unfortunate. They changed the cover from a charming studio photo of Bobby and Willie to a New England postcard. They spent no time remastering the sound. I transferred my vinyl and I did a better job that the record label, and they had theoretically had access to the masters."

"Originally released in 1980 under the title "Family Bible." The song, Family Bible, was a minor country hit in 1980 and is one of my favorite songs on this CD. If you are looking for a follow-up to Willie's outstanding "The Troublemaker" album you might be disappointed in this album. While it is a very good CD, the performances are stripped down and lack the backing vocals and instrumental support found on "The Troublemaker." What you get on this CD is just Willie, his guitar, and a piano accompaniment. No drums, no bass guitar, no slide, no organ, etc... That does not make this a bad album, but it lacks the punch that "Troublemaker" has. The result here are solid performances and a much more peaceful feel. I recommend this CD if you like traditional gospel music or if you like Willie Nelson. But if you are looking for a "Troublemaker II" you might be disappointed."
