Delirious by Martin Smith and Craig Borlase

The front-man of Christian band, Delirious? gives us an inside look at the history of their band and the journey they led in Delirious: My journey with the band, a growing family, and an army of History Makers.

Coming from England, Martin grew up in a strong Christian home. His father asked him to lead the youth group and within the week, Martin was able to stand in front of a few teenagers and play the guitar.

This book takes us for a ride through the early years of Delirious?; when they were playing for a small festival and recording 6 songs for cassette tapes.

Martin writes about his experiences with singing of and for God, his intense call to worship following a horrible car accident and then how, through Joyce Meyer, his heart broke for children in India.

As a father to 6 children, Martin explains why it was important for his band to dump the typical band tour dates and be home in time to worship at their home church.

He explains the band's difficulties as they exploded onto the United States and trying to play both Secular and Sacred music realms.

This is a great inside-look at someone who loves a great God and his attempt to use his gifts toward praising Him.
