Living life to the Max - Isaac Chong
"Living Life to the MAX!" is a personal memoir of songs by Isaac Chang. In these songs, he shares his calling and other experiences with God. The music is contemporary. He writes the songs to reflect the heart of worship and his desire to penetrate the nations with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The title track speaks of living in the center of God's will, totally for Him. The song World Changers is a call to Christians to change the world with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. There are nine English and one Mandarin song in the album. Isaac Chang had a love for song-writing even as a young believer. From 1995 till mid 2003, he served with his wife in Hope Church Penang.
