Today, Matt Redman releases a new book written around his song 10,000 Reasons.
10,000 Reasons reveals the stories beyond the well-known church anthem, fusing global worship leader Matt Redman’s own encounters of God with those from believers throughout the ages.
In just four years, 10,000 Reasons has become one of the church’s most popular modern worship songs in times of triumph as well as trial. In this book, Matt Redman joins the dots between singing the song and living the life. In addition to sharing details behind the song’s creation, this book offers stirring stories beyond the song from believers across the globe. Matt explores the influences and experiences that have taught him how to trust God in all situations—from his own personal trials to stories of hymn writers like John Wesley as well as from current and ancient heroes of our faith. Matt shares from his own story how seasons of both battle and blessing have helped forge him into the worship leader we know today.
Matt Redman is a worship leader, songwriter and the author of numerous books, including ‘The Unquenchable Worshipper.’ Among his many well-loved songs are ‘Blessed Be Your Name,’ ‘The Heart Of Worship,’ and ‘Our God.’ Matt and his wife Beth, have five children and live on the South coast of England.
