The Reckoning garnered generally positive reception from eight music critics. At CCM Magazine, Doug Van Pelt graded the album an A-, stating that “it’s hard not to notice the stellar production”, and it comes “with its incredible bass, drum and guitar sounds.”[4] Jeremy Williams of Cross Rhythms rate the album nine out of ten, writing that the album “doesn’t let up from there either, with crunching riffs and screamed lyrics that call for an all-out commitment as uncompromising as the music”.[8]

At Jesus Freak Hideout, Tim Harro rated the album four stars, saying that the album blends “instances of unoriginality with other moments of complexity, creativity, and also simplicity.”[9] Jennifer E. Jones of Christian Broadcasting Network rated the album four spins, affirming that “there is a enough good stuff to keep Pillar fans banging their heads.”[5] At The Phantom Tollbooth, Bert Saraco rated the album four tocks, noting how “Pillar shows us that they can produce punchy, driving, tricky but accessible music without having to sound like anyone else […] Although those guitars did sound like Stryper.”[10]

Jay Heilman of Christian Music Review rated the album an 84-percent, stating how listeners will be “impressed with the turn and direction the band takes with the new material.”[6] At Christianity Today, Russ Breimeier rated the album three stars, commenting that the album “amounts to a Christian album that’s capable of reaching the non-believer, though some of the songs are too abstract for their own good.”[7] Greg Prato of Allmusic rated the album three stars, highlighting that “there’s not much differentiating Pillar from all the other similarly styled hopefuls.”[3]
