No doubt that some music fans will not appreciate Werner's daring with this record, but she was careful to iterate in our recent interview that she had no intention of making The Gospel Truth a protest album. Indeed, if you listen all the way through, it's hard to miss the fact that Werner is as much paying homage to spiritual song as she is raising questions often faced by people of all faiths.
