Music Spotlight: The Weight of Glory by Heath Mcnease

The Weight of Glory is a 12 song album inspired by 12 different books by C.S Lewis. Heath McNease has created an insightful concept album that can really inspire deep thought.

This album is predominately characterized by an indie folk feel, but has some hip-hop elements, including a couple segments that are rapped.

The songs are all based on well known works by C.S Lewis, ranging from a song titled "Mere Christianity" to a song called "Edmund," which is based the character of the same name from the Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe.

The track titled "Mere Christianity" is also a beautiful song that once again draws attention to C. S. Lewis's famous trilemma-- that Jesus is either a liar, a lunatic, or the Lord.

My favorite song on the album is the title track. This is based on a short work by C.S. Lewis that I have never read, but hope to soon. We all long for an eternity in glory, and this song reflects that desire.  After listening to this album you may find that you desire to read a work by C.S Lewis that you have not read yet.
