No Compromise is the second album release by contemporary Christian music pianist and singer Keith Green, released in 1978.

The album's title derives from "Make My Life a Prayer to You", which begins: "Make my life a prayer to You / I wanna do what You want me to / No empty words and no white lies / no token prayers, no compromise." (The title was used for the official Keith Green biography written by his wife Melody Green, which was included in Rich Text Format (RTF) and Portable Document Format (PDF) formats on The Ministry Years, Volume Two (1980-1982) (CD release), which has the Enhanced CD label.)

No Compromise features cover art that refers to the Book of Esther in the Bible, specifically the part where Mordecai refused to bow to Haman.

Making of the Album[edit]

Much like Green's first work, this album was produced by Bill Maxwell, who also contributed some of the instrumental playing on the album along with Keith Green himself.
