AllMusic 4/5 stars[1]
Cross Rhythms 10/10 squares[2]

This Mystery received two positive reviews from music critics. At AllMusic, William Ruhlmann writes that Nordeman concerns herself with the life application of the Gospel rather than religious minutia, when he states that this "may not sit well with the more doctrinaire of Christians, but those who struggle daily with reconciling their faith to contemporary life are likely to respond favorably."[1] Founder Tony Cummings of Cross Rhythms says that "as art of the highest order, pop doesn't come much better."[2]
