Feedback on Delirious: My Journey with the Band, a Growing Family and an Army of Historymakers,
This review is from: Delirious: My Journey with the Band, a Growing Family and an Army of Historymakers (Paperback)
I usually take a week of more to finish a book. This one I completed in 2 days.
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 . . . . . .
