“Wickham is moving in a fascinating direction with his sound, and with this album he seems to be testing the waters a bit. It makes the prospect of future material that much more enticing. But until then, we have this fine album—one of 2009's best—to keep us company.”-ChristianMusicToday.com

“This is definitely Phil Wickham’s best overall album and one of my top 10 albums of 2009.  These melodies are off the charts and any test audience will have a hard time not giving these songs 5 star ratings.  This is a 5 star album.”-Christianmusicreview.org

“Wickham pulls off an excellent hybrid of interesting lyrics, great vocals and fantastic music… Heaven And Earth is easily one of the finest worship projects of the year.”-jesusfreakhideout.com

“The first time I listened to Phil's single ‘Safe’, I was amazed over how the message connected and really appreciate its relevance to all that is going on in the world these days,” says WAY-FM Network Program Director, Tate Luck. “The sound is fresh and Bart Millard's participation is a great touch!”

Wickham’s current single “Safe” features MercyMe’s frontman Bart Millard.  While only out 8 weeks, the single has already made it into the top 20 on Billboard’s Christian AC and Soft AC/Inspirational charts. Currently there are already 75 reporting stations that have added "Safe."
