Item description for The Way I Was Made by Chris Tomlin...

It's all about God, and His glory. That's the purpose of Chris Tomlin's first book- to get you to think of yourself as one of God's fame builders.

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 God--to 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 I've got a story or two that I hope will throw some light on the road you're traveling...

Reviews - What do customers think about The Way I Was Made?

Chris Tomlin is an awesome worship leader and I love his Heart but  Dec 6, 2008
I do not believe that God's "fame" is the exact best way to describe our life purpose. Fame is a human attribute and that is because if God were to have "fame" that is in the context of a public setting therefore making it impossible to have a PERSONAL relationship with Him because God concerned with public attention of being a "Hollywood celebrity". God is not just some bully who is trying to seek public attention, Hollywood spotlights and such as that. Rather, the Bible and all of history is a story about God's radical love for all humanity and his desire for all of humanity to experience PERSONAL satisfaction in Him (that is what it means to glorify God which we were created to do). So I don't like the way Tomlin and the Passion movement sheepishly reduces God some kind of pop star and heaven to some kind of Hollywood fan club because that is not what it is about. Yes we are created to glorify and worship God. All that means is that we find our everlasting happiness in God, in HIS glory and beauty reflected in creation, and in HIS ways. God's zeal to be glorified is NOT motivated by some idea of making His own life better but my a God centered and other-centered motive (I did NOT say man-centered, theres a difference) to love us by getting us to PERSONALLY enjoy Him. So reducing God to some kind of celebrity seeking to be publicly famous is probably not something I am going to try to do. Otherwise, I love Chris Tomlin and all of His songs because they definitely show just how beautiful God is to the soul. I love the Passion Movement because Lioue has a way of teaching the vast majesty of the holiness of God. Thanks and keep it up. I will see you in heaven and I will even more certainly and personally know the great I AM you preached.
A Must Read on True Worship  Feb 8, 2008
While Chris Tomlin does go over his story and how he got where he is, that is just the top layer of the book. The deep heart of it is what he learned through those different occassions in his life: discovery of his passion, the desire to pursue it, the times of humility, going to the mountain top and helping others to get there too. While it is some what directed to "worship leaders," it can be applied to anyone who wants to seek God's face while they worship. Whether the worship be at a service or concert, pursuing what God created you to do, or how you live out your life day to day. Because we were all created to worship God with everything and by the world standards, that does make for an unusual life, but what an amazing adventure it is too! An adventure that makes me incredibly excited to be on, even if I don't know all of the details right now. But God does and that's all that matters!
Not what I expected - In a good way.  Sep 5, 2007
I first picked up this book when I was reading Praise Habit: Finding God In Sunsets And Sushi by David Crowder. Because Crowder's book was so refreshing and enjoyable (due to his writing style and stories) Tomlin's book seemed a little dry when I browsed through it.

Fast forward one year. I encountered The Way I was Made and had the opportunity to read through it. It was refreshing to see the progression of a worshipper and songwriter and realize that successful people are made over the long-haul not overnight.

Mr. Tomlin shares many insights into his songs, past and worship style. He also gives lots of excellent tips for building a solid spiritual foundation that should benefit any worshipper or worship leader.
The Way I Was Made: Words and Music for an Unusual Life  Jun 4, 2007
Very, very helpful information as I am a new worship leader. Chris Tomlin is the best!
Great book on worship!  Jan 18, 2007
Having recently read a number of books on worship, I found Chris Tomlin's to be concise, extremely relevant, and well-written--kind of like the songs he writes, I guess.

I think the biggest strength of this book is that Chris is so real. He doesn't try to come across as a saint, and so he makes the ideal of living out worship seem attainable.

And it didn't hurt that I kept laughing aloud at his stories.
