Martin Smith—one of the leading voices in the modern worship movement—shares his story, his insight, and his challenge to change the world. For seventeen years, Smith held the microphone for Delirious? the mega-selling, Dove Award-winning, Grammy-nominated band that helped bring the modern worship movement into existence. Here Martin reflects on everything from the craft of leading worship to the challenges of parenthood to how to find a place of compassion within a culture of consumerism. Along the way, he challenges readers: Are you going to be spectators— or agents of change? Are you going to read history—or make it happen? Are you just going to sing the songs—or will you live them out? Always personal and often surprising, Smith’s story will spur readers to embrace the action God wants them to take.
First off, if you have not ever heard Delirious? then you are missing a really great Christian group. For 17 years, Martin Smith was the front man leading teens and young adults onto the path of righteousness through his music.
I decided to post a youtube video of one of their songs so that you have the opportunity to listen for yourself to their inspirational music.
Martin Smith is a truly inspirational man. After a severe car accident that left him requiring surgery, he realized that God was more important then anything. And he decided to put God first by making his music his full time career.
It was through his music that he was able to spread the Good Word to people all over the world. And it was through his touring that he realized that there was so much more that he as a person of Faith can do for the world.
He and his wife Anna started a charity called CompassionArt. This charity helps raise money for 3rd world countries through music. Many of the biggest names in Christian music came together to create an album to help those in need.
Martin not only balanced his music career and his charitable acts, but he also made sure that he had family time with his wife and six children.
This man is a true inspiration. And if you would like to read her story, check out Meet Mrs. Smith by Anna Smith.
