Matt Redman pours his heart and soul into this book, much like he does the songs he writes. The theme that came to my mind as I read this book is found in James 1:2-3, "Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness". The book starts with a short but poignant foreword by Max Lucado. Then Redman explains how he has met people and heard inspiring stories of faith that have come from his song. This book was wr ...more

Táto kniha je prekrásna a skutočne veľmi výnimočná. Rozpráva príbehy ľudí, ktorí si prešli obrovskou bolesťou, no aj napriek všetkému chvália Boha a všetko zverujú do jeho rúk, pretože vedia, že práve On má moc uzdraviť ich srdcia. Táto publikácia v sebe ukrýva aj mnoho nádherných a hlbokých myšlienok Matta Redmana, autora piesne 10 000 reasons, ktorého slová majú moc dotknúť sa duše a priniesť jej radosť. Celé dielo je naozaj povzbudzujúce, presne ako aj samotná pieseň...

I love this song and I loved this book! Matt Redman's song Blessed Be Your Name was so important to my family as it was the song we listened to in the hospital when my dad was dying. My dad loved to hear it and would sing along, even when a tumor in his mouth made it difficult to speak. We were all singing it while we sat around him when he died--a sad yet wonderful moment. I wrote Matt Redman to tell him how meaningful the song was to me, and he very kindly wrote back. This book is personal ref ...more

I loved the mustering of faith, trust and hope in God that this book highlights, in a plethora of peoples lives. Through each hardship, I got tingles at knowing that what these people experienced with God was something that would ultimately alter not only their very being but their relationship with God.

A reasonably quick and accessible read. It covers how the song came to be written and many (tear-jerker) stories of people who found it helpful when going through difficult times. Interspersed are thoughtful and perceptive reflections on what worship is; its purpose and focus. Finally there is Q&A section at the end on the writing of worship songs.

This little book is truly inspiring. A reminder to fix our eyes on Christ in the midst of all circumstances and find those 10,000 reasons to keep singing His praises. Would be a great gift to someone suffering.

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.

10000 Reasons is my favourite song and this book explains why... If you have heard of the song, then you should read this book...

In this book, Matt Redman tells us that he wasn't sure he wanted to include the song "10,000 Reasons" in his album because he only needed 11 and had twenty. His producer stepped in and told him that he didn't care what Matt dropped but this one was going on it. Since then, it has become one of the most popular songs of our time. In this book Matt opens up his heart and shares his life with the reader. We get a glimpse into his childhood and he doesn't hide the fact that he was abused. He talks a ...more

10,000 Reasons is an inspiring and uplifting song that translated into an even more inspiring book. The forward by Max Lucado is an excellent beginning to the stories Matt Redman shares on the following pages. From his description of the moments when the song 10,000 Reasons came to life to his sensitive telling of many intense stories of faith, this book offers the truth of God and a reason to worship Him in all circumstances.

It is so moving to read of the faith that exists in this world in eve

such a simple little book, but it's bursting at the seams with love, joy and a passion for God and Christ. 10000 reasons is one of my all time favourite worship songs, my son told me 4 years ago that he loved it, and it was playing the very first time I walked into the big top at my 1st spring harvest 4 years ago, and seeing/hearing that many people worshipping, and doing so with my son's favourite song had such a wonderful effect on me I've never forgotten that moment. reading about the amazing ...more
