Grammy Award-winner Israel Houghton is set to release his new CD “A Deeper Level” in September 2007. In conjunction with the album release, Israel Houghton releases his first book project of the same name “A Deeper Level” with Whitaker House.
In preparation to record their fourth live release, Israel Houghton and his New Breed team went on a forty-day fast to seek the heart of God and ultimately produce an anointed project that would take listeners to a “deeper level” in their relationship with God. The result was not just another hopeful best-selling album, but a deeper revelation into what it means to truly live a lifestyle of worship.
In “A Deeper Level“, Israel Houghton encourages readers to let go of their routine lifestyles in order to experience a new reality in Christ. He urges members of the body to passionately pursue the heart of God by addressing the things that are dear to Him, such as feeding the poor and bringing about social change.
In addition to Israel Houghton’s personal insights, members of the New Breed team include their thoughts on topics such as pulling down idols, being ever aware of God’s presence, and embracing new mind-sets. The book also includes images of band members and lyrics from the new CD.
Israel Houghton is the recipient of multiple Dove and Grammy Awards and has performed with gospel luminaries such as CeCe Winans, Donnie McClurkin and Yolanda Adams.
