The book is not filled with facts, or even with a story. Rather, it is one man's struggle to put on paper the complete journey of his heart and soul, and his ongoing wrestling match with his God. An impossible task. And therefore, of course, he fails. But what does that matter? Even God struggles to fully communicate himself to human beings through mere written words.
Instead, I am left feeling as if I've just been sitting across from the author for eight hours, the remains of five latte's and three panini's on the table. Not that we're counting, because we're too busy focussing on each other's hearts, too busy seeking the mind and heart of our God and Father, yearning for more of Him, begging Him to come change His world and take command, as He has promised He will do.
You are left knowing Martin, not as the author, but as a friend. Even as a soul mate.
So if you're after a bio on Martin Smith, or Delirious?, then this is a really good one. Could it be better? Oh, probably. But I didn't care, I'm quite sure that's not Martin's point. This is a love letter, a heart's scream, a desperate howl for more of God . . . . . . and as such, I just lapped it up as fast as I could . . . . . .
Martin writes honestly about his years with the band and the formation of his family and passions. Having run worship events in the past, similar to CUTTING EDGE, it has been fascinating to read how Martin and the band listened to God in the early stages and how their small worship group expanding into a world wide army of Historymakers!
Martin speaks many truths about the calling that God has for all Christians. What we need to be doing is listening to that calling as God speaks it and getting on with it, whether it is being a worship leader, staying in the everyday job where we are or going to be a missionary abroad.
The stories about his life are encouraging and I found this book very encouraging to me and my situation. Thanks for writing it Martin.
Now what is god calling you to do?
Both times enriched my life, not least the catalytic effect on my daughter's faith.
Reading Martin's account of the journey behind the scenes has stirred something in me to pursue what I'm born for and make the tough choices that come with that.
This is an inspiring read and a challenging story. I highly recommend it.
2. for the honesty and integrity in what he has written here, of his journey of faith, still in its unfolding.The unfolding is the part that is so encouraging, this is not a story that speaks of a done and dusted life but rather a life that is still waiting for answers, and actively trusting in the wait.
A book that reveals, inspires and challenges. Not unlike so many of Martin's songs!
Martin tells us how the road will not be easy but God is with us all the way. This is a worshipers story of how he has grown to know his maker more and how he is now desperate just to know him more. A powerful read for any who serve in their church.
