The blurb on the back of the book says it all, really. "Go behind the scenes with Delirious? to uncover the biblical and personal inspiration for their moving worship songs." Made up of 20 stories, reflections and devotions this has plenty of fascinating tales, like manager Tony Patoto tracking down the monks of Ampleforth Abbey to sing on "You Are My God"; the amazing Phil Wall and his extraordinary 10/10 challenge where he gave Soul Survivor punters money to invest for the good of the Kingdom; and Martin Smith pleading with God to be filled with God's power and writing "Lord You Have My Heart". Some of the Americanisms are a bit irritating for a book about a British band but it's beautifully designed and will no doubt inspire many Delirious? fans.
