Released in , House of Love is the ninth studio album, and fourteenth overall album by Amy Grant.

House of Love was Amy's follow-up to her quintuple-platinum release Heart in Motion. Although House of Love sold less than half as many units as its predecessor, it similarly combines pop music with Christian values. "Lucky One" was the album's biggest hit, reaching #18 on the Pop and #2 on the Adult Contemporary charts in America, followed by the title song and a remake of Joni Mitchell's "Big Yellow Taxi". "Say You'll Be Mine" was also a Top 50 hit in the UK. When it was released in 1994, House of Love was the biggest initial release in Christian music history, shipping almost a half million copies on its first day alone.

In Europe, Australia, and Japan, the album included the additional track "Politics of Kissing". Some of the album's other tracks garnered more notice later on when covered by other artists. "The Power" (written by Tommy Sims and Judson Spence) is featured on Cher's 1998 album, Believe, while Vanessa Williams had a hit with her version of "Oh How the Years Go By" in 1997, which reached #6 on the Adult Contemporary chart and was included on her album Next.

In 2007, House of Love was reissued and digitally remastered by Grant's new record label, EMI/Sparrow Records. The remastered edition is labeled with a "Digitally Remastered" logo in the 'gutter' on the CD front.
