My top 5 books from 2005 (part 2)

I’m not generally a fan of minibooks – the small format hardbacks that seem to have taken the Christian book world by storm since the publication of The Prayer of Jabez by Bruce Wilkinson. Usually they have an important message, but some more recent titles seem to lack substance. But this year a couple of these have caught my attention, including the following book by Matt Redman.

This superb title contains excellent insights from one of the greatest contemporary worship songwriters. He focusses on God’s greatness and glory, the ‘otherness’ of God as he puts it. His call to worship the Lord with passion and utter selflessness is a timely message to a church that can so easily become distracted from the essence of worship.

If you’ve read this or seen the accompanying DVD, let me know what you think.
