Most Helpful Customer Reviews
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. A copy of this book was given to me through Netgalley.com in exchange for an honest review.
