This Moment was well received by critics. Jared Johnson, of AllMusic, gave the album 3.5 out of 5 stars and wrote "You get the feeling that the man with the most Dove Awards in the history of the Gospel Music Association could write this stuff in his sleep. He's that good, and the tunes are that well done." John DiBiase, of Jesus Freak Hideout, gave the album 4 out of 5 stars calling it "a relevant and inspiring album that proves Steven Curtis Chapman still has plenty to offer the world of music twenty years after his debut."
On May 27, 2008, Sparrow Records released This Moment: Cinderella Edition. This edition has four additional tracks, including the acoustic version of the single "Cinderella". This version gained notoriety for being released days after the death of Chapman's youngest daughter, Maria Sue, who was one of the inspirations behind the song. The studio claims that there were plans for this edition a month before the accident.
