Spoken worship … is poetry of the soul, reaching out to the soul’s greatest lover. Where deep calls to deep, spoken worship heeds the call. Spoken Worship is written with the conviction that the spoken word has a unique power – power to reach into the heart, power to transport us to where we could not otherwise go and transform us into what we would not otherwise become. The forty poems in this collection go beyond image and emotion. They are created to be not merely read silently but spoken aloud in a way that brings both the speaker and all who listen into a fresh new experience of worship. With performance notes for each of its eight sections that offer insights into the why as well as the how of spoken worship, this book is designed for use in every setting: church services, home groups, personal times with God, hospital rooms – any and every circumstance in which human hearts long to engage with a passionate, deeply loving God who formed us to feel and to respond to him with emotion.
