The Felix Culpa, the “happy fault, which merited to us so great a Redeemer” has been in Christian literature since St. Augustine (and probably before). Singer/songwriter Audrey Assad uses this phrase and God’s great grace and goodness as the basis for her latest album, Fortunate Fall. To drive the point home, these 11 songs, including “Fortunate Fall,” “O Happy Fault,” and “Felix Culpa,” consider in simple, but not simplistic, language the joy of receiving grace. Clearly this is an album with a singular lyrical theme.

The beautifully produced record is driven by piano and vocals. While the whole album is excellent, the song “Good to Me” stands out as a wonderful testament to God’s goodness. It is the sort of song you want to hear again as soon as it is finished. (Fortunate Fall)
