Martin Smith was the lead singer for the worship band Delirious? for seventeen years. Delirious? won numerous Dove Awards, was nominated for a Grammy Award, and produced songs such as I Could Sing of Your Love Forever and Did You Feel the Mountains Tremble? Craig Borlase is a British co-writer and author who has written numerous books. The band Delirious provided much of the soundtrack of my formative years. I got bored of "christian" music quickly, but there seemed to be music coming from Christians in the . that just said something to me and made me believe it all might be true. Delirious was one of those bands - some would say they were the band. So, last year when they decided to end their time as a band I was bummed. But I did get to see their final concert on television and it was outstanding.

Frontman Martin Smith and his bandmates disbanded a few years ago, but their influence is still strong in church services today. The busy father of six and founder of CompassionArt recently spoke with CB. om about his biography, with particular emphasis on his life before, during, and after the band, about true worship, and making history for Christ. CB. om: You talk in your book about when you first picked up songwriting

Filled with stirring stories of history-makers, failures, successes and a raw honesty that challenges you to fight for significance, this book was one of this Delirious fan’s best summer reads for 2011. If you don’t know much about the British band that tried to break down the barrier between church music and what you hear on the radio than I think you would really enjoy this book to. .

The band Delirious provided much of the soundtrack of my formative years. I got bored of "christian" music quickly, but there seemed to be music coming from Christians in the U.K. that just said something to me and made me believe it all might be true. Delirious was one of those bands - some would say they were the band.

So, last year when they decided to end their time as a band I was bummed. But I did get to see their final concert on television and it was outstanding. And then, amazon recommended to me Martin Smith's (the lead singer) new autobiography, Delirious: My Journey with The Band, a Growing Family, and an Army of History Makers, I was pretty stoked.

The book itself is a rush. Smith lets you in to see how he ended up singing in a band, all the way from how God changed his life to the business sides of things that they struggled to balance. It's honest and refreshing to read, especially if you are into Delirious. There's even some serious critique of american christian music and the christian music industry - stuff you won't hear from someone who still wants their label to sell records for them.

For me personally, this book came at a perfect time in my life. God used it to open me up a little more and bring some real fresh life to our relationship. It's been so good for me and so freeing. I don't know why or what happened, but I like it!

Simple. Interesting perspective from Martin's point of view and probably the band. Living in Italy I had lost touch with them. I do wonder why British Christian bands go so far afield (US,India, Africa) when the need to hear the real Gospel in decadent western Europe is so high. In the early 90's I remember waking up my 3 years old (he had just gone to bed) to rush to a local venue in Slough (UK) to go to see them. I was excited to see them as they were growing... and I remember thinking "I hope they have a strong team supporting them behind all these touring dates..." - As humans we get burned out with too many activities. They had a good fellowship but the stake were high and perhaps they should have taken another directions. The tussle and band directions and struggles are well described. I feel there is some regrets there too... still miracles happened and there was much encouragement spread throughout the country and beyond. Bands are destined to end and this is the sad story when we follow them because music speak to the soul and her call is eternal therefore we're all a little sad when we hear it's all over. Bands and music also mark a period of our lives... personally music is less important at present and the gospel of grace much more attractive (it must be age) :-)
In the book there are some interesting thoughts. There are honest simple life revelation (we're all the same after all) and a couple of thought provoking points. a) you become great spending time with somebody greater then you; 2) we're all in Transition: Waldo Emerson "Not in his goals but in his transitions man in great"; 3) are you ready to craft the best song of your life

I am a Delirious fan and that was the reason I got this book. Let me say fan or not this is an awesome book. I love the way it is written. It is a very easy read and straight forward. I feel like I am listening to Martin talk about his life and the changes that took place growing up.
In my opinion this book is good for all ages but especially if you have a pre-teen through young adult, this would be great for them. Have a music fan get them this book. If you are interested in church music, worship music, Contemporary Christian music, get this book.

Being a Delirious fan I knew I'd like the book. I liked reading some of the stories that inspired the writing of certain songs and the everyday life on the road for the band. I wish it could've gone a bit deeper into their personal lives but I guess thats' been left for another book of theirs.. good marketing guys.. wink All in all I'd recommend the book if you're a fan, you won't be disappointed.

I've wanted this book for quite a while and recently got it while it was shortly featured as a free promotion. Delirious: My Journey with the Band, a Growing Family, and an Army of Historymakers was a great, easy, and throughly enjoyable read. I finished the book in a few days times which is not typical for me. That goes to show how captivating the story was. Deliriou5? has been my favorite band for years so it was neat to learn more about the history of how the band got started, about the background of some songs, and how the band ended through the eyes of Mr. Martin Smith. Seeing more of Martin Smith's heart through this books makes me respect him even more. He shares so many wise insights that he has learned through the years of being a leader in a historic movement.

If you, like me, are not a musician, this book is still a very worthwhile read.

He's just a regular guy. But also a gifted communicator and artist. I could've done without some of the advice that - no matter what he said - could only help me be him. But his perspectives are precious and his reality checks vital. If you're a fan it's required reading IMO but worth reading in any case for the spiritual insight. It's Brother Martin just telling his story with all humility and honesty. I'm glad to know him.
