“The Way My Story Goes” is full of Old Testament story songs, all with a view to showing forth Christ in the Old Testament stories. It begins with Noah, and sweeps through the OT till near the end, where a version of Psalm 80 (“Give Ear”, a longing for the Messiah to come) provides the transition to the New Testament, where there are some songs of glory in Christ and a forward look to the resurrection.
Jamie writes the following;
"A statement made by C.S. Lewis about children’s literature has shaped my understanding of how to build a kids song. It was something along these lines, that if a book cannot be enjoyed by a fifty year old, it won’t make good and lasting children’s literature. By the same token, if the song is unbearable for an adult to listen to, it won’t be a good kids song."
This is surely the case with "The Way My Story Goes". It is all kid's album, but not just kids like it. It is funny, but serious. It addresses kids like they were adults, and doesn't talk down to them, but even little kids can understand it. It is almost in a genre by itself... call it Bible music.
