10,000

About:

10,000 Reasons reveals the stories beyond the well-known church anthem, fusing global worship leader Matt Redman’s own encounters of God with those from believers throughout the ages.

In just four years, “10,000 Reasons” has become one of the church’s most popular modern worship anthems in times of triumph as well as trial. In this book, global worship leader Matt Redman connects the dots between singing the song and living the life. In addition to sharing details behind the song’s creation, this book takes readers beyond the song. Matt explores the influences and experiences that have taught him how to trust God in all situations—from his own personal trials to stories of hymn writers like John Wesley as well from current and ancient heroes of our faith.

My thoughts:

Do you love this song? I sure enjoy singing it with my congregation.

This book was very well written and engaging. I love the way Matt shared his life story, the story of this song and other’s stories. It was beautifully woven together.

One particular line in the book has stuck with me: “Worship is about what you choose to magnify.” Matt talked about how we can’t make God any bigger then He already is but we can focus in on Him when we worship and not the other things in our lives.

We worship whatever we magnify. This is book is full of stories of people who could have magnified their problems but instead chose to magnify the Lord.

No matter if you are going through a hard time in life or not I think you will find this book inspiring and will never sing this song quite the same way again.

Grab a copy at your local bookstore, Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Christianbook.com or your favorite retailer.
