A concept album is an album unified by a larger purpose or meaning to the album collectively than to its tracks individually. The songs are best understood when listened to in context of the album as a whole.
The Realest Thing is a concept album inspired by the book Reasonable Faith by William Lane Craig. Reasonable Faith walks through several philosophical arguments for the existence of God and the primary evidences for Jesus Christ as his son. Each of the songs on this album aspires to encapsulate these arguments in a memorable way so that people of faith can have a song in their heart to correspond to the reasoning in their head. Listed below are the song titles alongside their corresponding philosophical arguments. The album opens with a prelude that gives insight into Aryn’s struggle which led to the desire to explore this content. It concludes with a postlude that ponders what a deeper intellectual understanding of faith might bring.
