Andrew Peterson – ‘The Burning Edge Of Dawn’ album review

After releasing Light For The Lost Boy, the obvious place for Andrew Peterson to turn was inward. The previous album’s epic scope would be hard to follow, so it’s not surprising the acclaimed songwriter partnered with producer Gabe Scott for a more intimate, confessional set of songs on The Burning Edge of Dawn. It’s often plaintive, yet always vulnerable, and fits comfortably alongside much earlier albums in Peterson’s discography. Of note, “My One Safe Place” celebrates Peterson’s wife in a memorable refrain, and “Rejoice” takes the oft-sung Biblical command and gives it a new

song. Burning Edge is a classic Andrew Peterson release filled with powerful analogies of God and a God-ward faith meant to challenge and encourage the listener’s journey.
