Book Description

11 July 2011
Internationally known worship leader and songwriter Matt Redman, invites readers to a deeper understanding of what it means to reflect God s dazzling radiance. In Mirror Ball,Matt Redman eloquently illustrates why passion is more than a song or a feeling. It s a story of guts and glory, pain and purpose. For anyone ready to follow Jesus, passion is a way of life. Through story, Scripture, and practical inspiration, Redman encourages readers to remember that however inadequate thy may feel to live out this passion, God will work in and through them, just as light radiates through the smallest prism. After all, the same God who said let there be light has made His light to shine in their hearts, illuminating their lives and the lives of those around them.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good book - motivational 8 Jan 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a very readable book, which wont take long and will motivate/inspire you. It isn't in depth, but if you like Matt Redman you are likely to like the book. It relates to his songs freqeuntly and lets you see a little into Matt's character, along with demonstating his powerful love of God. The exercises at the end aren't for everyone, it's especially good for someone who struggles to read heavy books and prefers a light read.

3.0 out of 5 stars Resource for Your Worship Team 29 May 2011
By C. Bennett - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Powerful! 16 Jun 2011
By LMS - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I loved this book. Matt Redman's passion for worship is contagious and obvious. He has some great insights that will help the reader gain a deeper understanding of what it means to truly worship. It will draw the reader into a deeper and closer relationship with God. Christians, especially in the West, tend to think of worship in terms of singing. But Matt Redman encourages the reader to expand worship to include things like writing, drawing, painting, and other art forms.Worship is based on our view of God. If we have a big view of God, we will also worship Him that way. If we see God as small, we won't go out of our way to worship Him.

I do have one complaint about this book. It was too short. It was just a hair over 100 pages long. Don't get me wrong. What was there was definitely worth reading, but I found myself wishing the book was longer. I found it ironic that the discussion guide for this book was almost longer than the book itself. Again, this book is definitely a worthwhile read for anyone who wants to have a deeper desire for worship and to see God and our relationship with Him in a new way.

4.0 out of 5 stars Reflecting Jesus 21 July 2011
By Christopher R. Horton - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Matt Redman is mostly known for his worship music, which is phenomenal by the way. He's also a pretty good writer and someone who understands the concept of worship. Read the words of a musician who declares that music isn't worship, but is a tool used to worship. Worship is a way of life. It's a mirror ball reflecting God's goodness back to him through our lives. The mirror ball concept comes from a Passion conference where Louie Giglio used it as an illustration. Redman unpacks the concept in this book and gives it flesh with examples and stories.

It is a quick read. Read it in one sitting, but it is an encouraging read as well. I highly recommend it as a reminder of what God has called us to do, worship with our lives!

3.0 out of 5 stars Classic Redman in Book Form 15 Jun 2011
By Matthew R. Kuiper - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Mirror Ball is a book written by modern, famous hymnist
Matt Redman. His name is recognizable from such popular hymns as "Blessed be
the Name", "The Heart of Worship," and "You Never Let Go." Churches all over
America more than likely sing the songs of Mr. Redman once a week.

The purpose of the book is to bring Christians into a better understanding
of what it means to be a Christian. A major point of the text is the
illustration of a disco ball reflecting light all over a crowded room. The
size of the disco ball does not matter what does matter is the light going
into it. Mr. Redman then goes on to develop application for our Christian
lives from this illustration.

Mr. Redman's strength is in his grasp of what worship is. He has an
understanding and a depth that is refreshing; however, this focus on
worship over shadows other elements that would add depth to this book.

The primary themes in Mirror Ball are worship, love, and faithfulness.
Additional elements that would have added strength to this body of work
would have been personal purity and a theological grapple with
sanctification.

My favorite section of the book is when he discusses his personal
aspirations. Redman briefly introduces the reader to Charles Wesley and his
continuing influence on the modern church. The author longs for God to use
him in a similar manner. This kind of holy longing is refreshing.
Oftentimes, modern Christians do not dream in the long term and it creates a
shallowness to their work, may it be art, writing, or raising a family. I
would have liked him to develop this more but I am grateful for the way in
which he exposes his aspirations and asks us to follow.

The book is full of modern cliches and phrases, but that should probably be
expected from a book with a disco ball on the front cover.

Redman is not the most skillful writer. He can communicate effectively but
there is little beauty in the majority of his writings. Authors such as
Buchanan and Yancey do a far better job of using literary devices to develop
a theme. Because of the rather dry prose that tended to lean heavily on
Christian cliches, it was a difficult read. However, while wading through
sentences lacking vigor and filled with cliches, occasionally I would be

shocked at the pure elegance of a simple sentence. On the event of such a
rare sentence I would be reminded again that Matt Redman at his very core is
a poet. He has such a gift at getting a complex thought into a beautifully

concise sentence. Honestly, I would have enjoyed this book more if it was
illustrated and dropped poetic bombs on me like that. I think this is very
high praise for an author to say that he knows what words fit together. He
has a Max Lucado-like gift with some of his sentences, yet when the book is
this many pages - over 100 - this skillful refinement is sadly lost. If I
could challenge Mr. Redman it would be to write better but a bit less.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 17 July 2011
By adayriddle - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Amen! Isn't that what life should be about - shining brightly for God? However, so often we limit worship to just our singing at church. Though Matt Redman is known for his amazing, heartfelt, soul-stirring worship music he and his wife are authors of great books and and their lives reflect a life of living worship. Like every book I have read by either of the Redman's I am utterly amazed!

This book challenges and encourages the reader to look at worship in a whole new light. We are to be like a mirrored ball reflecting the glory of God for all the world to see. He shows how our daily living should be approached as an act of worship for God. Each task we put our hands to should be done with the Glory of God in mind.

If each Christian lived this way - sold out to worship - our world would be utterly turned upside down. People would view all things in life differently and the hurting and lost would see light in the midst of their darkness.

I encourage everyone to pick up a copy of this book.

Thank you B&B for this review copy.
