Dance like thereís no one watching

The Bible clearly shows that we have been uniquely created for a purposeful life, but itís not meant to be about us, or our career, or our fame. Itís all about God, and His glory. Thatís the purpose of Chris Tomlinís first bookóto get you to think of yourself as one of Godís fame builders. You and I are formed from the dust of His creation and given breath for this reason: to spread His renown to everyone we meet by what we say and do.

Itís the way we were made.

The writer of many of todayís most cherished youth-oriented worship songs guides readers in a personal and deeper discovery of living for Godís glory.

Made for More

You were made for more than this world sells. All that this world has to offer is temporary. It leaves us still hungry, wanting more, because we were made for something greater. We were created to shine the spotlight on Godóto spread His fame everywhere we go.

I want to encourage you along your journey. I want to help you discover more about what God has uniquely made you to do and enjoy. And Iíve got a story or two that I hope will throw some light on the road youíre travelingÖ

Story Behind the Book

ďIf Iíve learned one thing thatís true, itís this: You will never worship what you donít consider bigger than yourself. This famous God created us to worship Him. Our greatest purpose as people is to make much of God, to give our very lives in worship to Him. Far greater than anyone in Hollywood, Godís name is Ďup in lights,í the lights of the universe. His glory is seen wherever we fix our gaze. We are His people, formed from His dirt, given His breath to glorify Him. Our every step is to make Him famous in this lifeóand in the one to come.Ē

This is a small, simple book of Tomlin's reflections about how God has shaped Tomlin's view of worshiping with his whole life. It's written as a conversation between Tomlin and the readers and ... Read full review
