God (1996)

Updated: Sep 17, 2023


God is the third studio album by Australian Christian singer - songwriter Rebecca St. James, released on June 25, 1996 by ForeFront Records. The album took her music in a new direction, focusing more on rock. It debuted with positive reviews and debuted on the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart at number 200. It also charted on the Top Christian Albums at number 6 and number 10 on Heatseekers Album chart.


The title song was released as the lead single and music video climbing to number one on The CCM Update's Christian Rock chart. The song also did well on both CHR and AC charts with the radio remix version. Other singles include "Speak to Me," "Me Without You" and "Abba (Father)." St. James does a cover of the 1986 Australian hit "You're the Voice" sung by fellow Australian singer John Farnham. The CD contains a hidden bonus track "Psalm 139" that is heard right after the final track of "Go And Sin No More." God was certified Gold by the RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America) for sales of 500,000 in 2005. The album is produced by Tedd T. St. James earned her first Grammy Award nomination for Best Rock Gospel Album at the 39th Grammy Awards.


To promote God, St. James released a devotion book, 40 Days with God: A Devotional Journey, in 1996 and a year later, released the sequel to her devotional book: You're the Voice: 40 More Days with God.
