What were the Vikings really like? What did the Romans accomplish? And do the singular achievements of the ancient Greeks live on in our society today? This series questions the myths and unravels age-old clich's about these ancient cultures. It examines their strange and sometimes amusing idiosyncrasies, gives fresh insights into who they really were, and provides a novel take on their societies, peppered with surprising new revelations. Democracy, science, theatre, plumbing, modern roads, laws, the Olympics, conquering the seas, and the onset of globalisation are all at the heart of modern society, but in fact were inherited from the ancient worlds of the Greeks, the Romans and the Vikings. This is a new look at the ancient civilisations that will change our perception of them.

Not in a rut but in a groove, the veteran group Casting Crowns continue to explore various forms of music with each album and label them accordingly. The Live albums are dubbed Live albums, the Acoustic Sessions are marked as such, and their Hymns collections begin here with Glorious Day: Hymns of Faith. The categorization doesn't diminish how powerful and empowering these performances are, but those looking for an entirely new album should know half of these tracks come from previous efforts, and not always the ones a fan would expect. “If We Are the Body” comes from The Acoustic Sessions, Vol. 1 while other numbers are featured in their slightly shorter radio edits, making this a unique and unexpected set.
