Face the Nation (1991)

Updated: Dec 8, 2023


Face the Nation is the second studio album by the Christian music male vocal group 4Him, released in 1991 on Benson Records.


After the success of their 1990 self-titled debut album and winning a New Artist Dove Award, 4Him returns with their second album and has recruited much of the same songwriters and producers including Don Koch and Christopher Harris, plus Reed Arvin (Rich Mullins) produced three tracks including the album's lead single and music video "A Man You Would Write About." The track "Why?" topped the Christian AC chart, giving them their second number one radio hit.


Face the Nation peaked at number 19 on the Billboard Top Christian Albums chart. In 1992, 4Him was nominated for Group of the Year at the 23rd GMA Dove Awards. 4Him also released a companion video on VHS titled Face the Nation: The Videos featuring four music videos from their second album, plus live performances of their number one song "Where There is Faith" and "Do Right" with interviews and personel moments.
