Publisher's Description

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, 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 they 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.

Author Bio

    What good is a disco ball in the dark?

    Imagine a mirror "disco" ball in the dark. Not very impressive, is it?

    You and I are not very impressive either. But when the brilliant light of God illuminates our lives, suddenly intense beams of light burst in every direction, and all can get a taste of the greatness and grandeur of God as He shines through our lives.

    In this book, worship leader and songwriter Matt Redman shares some of his own passion and what God has taught him. His goal in crafting worship songs is "conveying the epic wonders of our God"; but he also wants his songs to be thoroughly grounded in everyday life experience.

    This intersection of the majestic and the mundane results in spiritually and existentially authentic lyrics in Matt's songs. They reflect a heart passionate for God in a world devoid of passion.

    SO WHAT?

    Louie Giglio said, "Passion is the degree of difficulty we are willing to endure to achieve the goal." Jesus said, "Whoever has been forgiven much, loves much."

    Whatever our passions, it should be our goal to shine for Jesus in every pursuit. Fill in the blanks of the following verse with your passion: The __________ I am going to __________ will be great, because our God is greater than all other gods. (2 Chronicles 2:5)

    Matt Redman wants us to live a big, bold, bright life of worship. He has written this book so that we would have a heightened view of Jesus and our lives would be to the glory of His name.

    The mirror ball may be small (our life, our church), but it is all about the light, His light. "...God is looking for a people who will take their passion to the next level and begin to shine His light in their everyday lives." (26)

    Redman wants us to be passionate worshipers, not for an hour on Sunday but as a way of life. "If our habit is to love God only in the convenience of a Sunday church service...we're in for a shock. For that may not be love at all." (35) "Love gives of itself whether it's convenient or inconvenient." (36) We can say we love God, "But in the end, only a life of devotion will breathe meaning into these words." (36)

    Redman encourages each of us to be an active part of the church. Together we can do much.

    "The way we look at God deeply affects our whole perspective on life." (74) Redman encourages us to always be ready to worship God. "If I wake up one day and cannot think of a reason to bring praise to God, then something is wrong with my spiritual outlook." (82)

    "We are all worshipers of something or someone..." (90) We must put the kingdom of God first and prioritize it and His righteousness above anything else. (93)

    The strength of this book is the fifty page discussion guide. It is divided into the eight chapters of the book and contain questions aimed at serious group study. This would be a great book for a small group wanting to pursue passionate worship.
