You'd think that you just about knew all you needed to know about Delirious? by now. Settled into their second decade as one of the scene's most innovative bands, Delirious? have made no secret of their passions, wearing their hearts on their sleeves and their faith up front. Just one trip to a live date and it's all there for the taking, so what's left to be said? According to the band's first ever self-penned book - 'I Could Sing Of Your Love Forever' - the answer is simple: plenty.
Through twenty stories, reflections and devotions the book reveals far more about the band than ever before. From Biblical inspiration to personal trials, the journey of discovery is clearly mapped out by Martin Smith and Stu G.
"We wanted to write something that was honest," explains Stu G, "but that was also interesting and helpful. We're all aware that the world doesn't need another rock band telling everyone how great they are, so we only wanted to get involved with a book project if we could keep the focus on Jesus rather than ourselves. So what we end up with - we hope - is something that charts the journey, showing how things have really been for us: with God as the captain and us as the confused but grateful little ones trying to follow His lead."
The result is all that and more. With songs from every period of their career 'I Could Sing Of Your Love Forever' is in itself an inspiring testimony to God's grace, mercy and goodness. Through stories that are personal, frank and often profoundly challenging the book lifts the lid on one of the most talked about bands around.
The book covers the following tracks: Stronger / Now Is The Time / Here I Am, Send Me / Love Is A Miracle / Paint The Town Red / Did You Feel The Mountains Tremble / Our God Reigns / I Could Sing Of Your Love Forever. As ever, design is excellent and the heart of the band beats with every page: to connect with a generation of history makers, cheering them on as they embrace the faith and turn the world upside down.
