With more than 30 million units sold worldwide, Amy Grant ranks as not only the most popular artist in contemporary Christian music, but also the best-selling artist in the history of pre-recorded God pushing. Listening to her, it’s easy to hear why she’s so popular with the Jesus crowd: She offers the pre-packaged sound of absolution. Whereas life is messy and filled with conflicting inspirations, Grant’s music is a squeaky clean pursuit of Christian virtue, in which the trials and tribulations of mortal existence already have been resolved. There’s no conflict; it’s faith in action where belief trumps reality and the only mystery in life is when you’ll be meeting the Son of God. Grant’s brand of bubblegum country rock gospel is why she’s the undisputed queen of Christian pop. She plays Saturday, Sept. 27, at the Beacon Theatre in Hopewell. Doors open at 6 p.m. Admission is $40-$120. thebeacontheatreva.com.
