Travel back in time when Christ, the Son of God, became man with God Came Near. Based on the iconic Christmas writings by best-selling author Max Lucado, this new musical from veteran arranger/composer Tom Fettke features a blend of new songs, classic texts, and beloved carols with optional congregational participation. The result is a magnificent and unforgettable celebration of the Incarnation. It all happened in a moment -- a most remarkable moment --when God came near.
"God Came Near is a musical gift for Christmas! Unwrap it and you’ll immediately recognize Tom Fettke’s quality choral writing and use of new and freshly familiar material. The design of the work allows it to be used creatively in programs of various sizes and shapes. The inspiring and imaginative narration from Max Lucado joins with the music in creating a work of substance and strength. If your hope is to draw the hearts and minds of all nearer to the Christmas message, this work is for you.”
“In God Came Near, Max Lucado's poetic prose is beautifully wedded to Tom Fettke's stunning score. Preparation and presentation of this new musical will be an unforgettable experience for everyone!”
