You've probably heard Matt Redman's songs, and even know them by heart, even though you may not know it. Author of: "Better Is One Day" and "Nothing But the Blood" and even "Blessed Be Your Name." My children sing along with him on the Veggie Tales Worship CD. In addition to being an author of praise and worship music, Matt Redman is also an author.
In "Mirror Ball," Matt Redman reflects on the role of worship in the life of the Christian. Yes, worship can involve our church community, a favorite piece of music, or even a concert. But what happens after the concert ends? How are you living your life after the emotional high of the worship experience ends? What choices do you make, long after you sing that it's better to live near God than anywhere else. Are those words simply words, or are they the overflow from a heart that is hungry and desirous of God? What flows from your worship? Is your worship doing something in the world?
The main theme of the book is that the life of worship is not about what we believe we can do for God. It is about God's light reflecting off of us, and going out into the world through us as the mirror.
This book is a short, fast read and includes a study guide. This would be a good resource for worship teams to do together and grow in their understanding of worship.
