These are snippets from David Bruce Murray's album review.

"The production quality on this recording is excellent, but more than that, the style of this collection is consistent."

"Pike’s vocals convey confidence and conviction. As a soloist, he has the range and skill to keep it interesting without over-singing."

"I am pleased to report that Timeless Truth is Pike’s best release to date, and I recommend it for your consideration. I look forward to hearing what he does next."

These are snippets from Lauren's Southern Gospel Blog album review.

"I'll confess, I had not heard of Miles Pike until recently. However, after listening to his latest project, I hope that I hear much more from him in the future."

"This is not your simple hymns project. The orchestration and background vocals on some of the songs is extremely impressive."

"One thing that really impressed me about hearing Miles for really the first time on this album was his range. On some songs, he comes across as a strong tenor while others it seems that he is more of a bass. Incredible range!"

CD Synopsis

In a day and time when truth is considered to be subjective — what is true for you may not be true for me — absolute truth seems to be an illusive enigma. Many well known faces of mainstream Christianity refrain from being dogmatic about areas of controversy regarding areas clearly defined in the Word of God. Assaults on scientific, political, and philosophical fronts have silenced thousands who profess to hold the truth.

This collection of songs is intended to be a clarion call to arouse the hearts and minds of those who may have been shaken into silence regarding the sufficiency and inerrancy of the words of our God who cannot lie. Most of these songs have stood the test of hundreds of years and are still the accepted anthems of faith throughout the worldwide church. A few modern hymn selections have also been included to remind us that truth is the same yesterday, today, and forever and that it is still being celebrated with clarity and strength.

In the book of Acts (i.e. Acts 19:23), unbelievers commonly referred to Christianity as “the Way” because they viewed its followers as narrowminded — unaccepting of any other way to God. This narrow mindset about truth has preserved the purity of the Christian faith down through the centuries. I think it appropriate to include here the historic stance of those who brought about the Protestant Reformation and stood against the massive onslaught of false teachers who tried to add to what is revealed to us in the sixty-six books of the Holy Bible:

Sola scriptura! Sola fide! Sola gratia! Solus Christus! Soli Deo gloria!

By Scripture alone! By faith alone! By grace alone! Through Christ alone! Glory to God alone!

These are the tenets that Christ’s Church has always accepted as the Way. Removing any one of these principles from your belief removes you from Biblical Christianity. This is Truth. It lives and works through the pages of Holy Scripture alone and it encompasses all that pertains to life and Godliness.

1 Peter 1:24-25 quotes the Old Testament prophet, Isaiah, “The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God will stand forever.” This word is the good news that was preached to you. This is timeless truth.
