At Christianity Today, Russ Breimeier told that "At the heart of everything was his relationship with Jesus, providing plenty of inspiration for original songwriting—hence the title, Pages." Andy Conway of CCM Magazine evoked that "after listeningto Shane & Shane’s latest record, Pages, you realize two things: these guys are great writers/musicians, and they absolutely love to sing about the Lord", and the album "confirms what fans of Shane Barnard and Shane Everett already knew; they are worshipful, reflective, reverent and poetic."Jesus Freak Hideout's Jessica Gregorius affirmed that "the two have kept to their musical roots and continue to amaze with Pages."
Pages has received generally positive reviews from the music critics. Allmusic's Jared Johnson found that the duo on the release "stretch their legs in the pop realm and rely less on straightforward worship", but "there is little to distinguish this album from other worship projects out there". At CCM Magazine, Andy Conway affirmed that the "Pages is honest, oftentimes in-yourface, deep and challenging", and told that "Pages is more than just another CD. It is an experience." Linda Michaels of Christian Broadcasting Network alluded to how "Pages, sends you running to Jesus with your whole heart", and that is because the release is "Soulful and soothing, intimate and inspiring". At Christianity Today, Russ Breimeier noted that "Pages is as pretty, passionately performed, and worshipful as you'd expect from Shane & Shane, plus chock full of interesting ideas", however at the same time "the music isn't as compelling, and frankly, sometimes boring." Iain Nash of Cross Rhythms called this "a beautiful album filled to the brim with strong ballads, each song reflects upon the salvation and freedom that can be experienced by resting in the presence of God." Jesus Freak Hideout's Jessica Gregorius proclaimed this to be a "spiritually satisfying release."
For the week of September 8, 2007 music charts by Billboard, Pages was the No. 66 most sold album in the entire United States via the Billboard 200 placement, and was the fifth most sold Christian Album.
