In conjunction with his September CD release, A Deeper Level, Grammy Award-winning artist Israel Houghton releases his first book project with Whitaker House.
In preparation to record their fourth live release, Israel and his New Breed team went on a forty-day fast to seek the heart of God and ultimately produce an anointed project that would take listeners to a “deeper level” in their relationship with God. The result was not just another hopeful best-selling album, but a deeper revelation into what it means to truly live a lifestyle of worship.
A Deeper Level, Houghton encourages readers to let go of their routine lifestyles in order to experience a new reality in Christ. He urges members of the body to passionately pursue the heart of God by addressing the things that are dear to Him, such as feeding the poor and bringing about social change.
In addition to Houghton’s personal insights, members of the New Breed team include their thoughts on topics such as pulling down idols, being ever aware of God’s presence, and embracing new mind-sets. The book also includes color images of band members and lyrics from the new CD.
When you come to live in the comforting, encouraging presence of God on a daily basis, it builds your confidence and faith in who He has made you to be. It is just so obvious to me that we haven’t even scratched the surface of what is available for us within the constant presence of God. ~Israel Houghton
