In fact, while writing this, I'm on my way to spend four days with more than 1500 of them at camp My passion to see young people awaken to a lifestyle of worship that goes far beyond singing songs, coupled with the need for small-group material, stimulated the idea for "Wired.

I pray that "Wired "will encourage teens everywhere to a lifestyle that reflects God's greatness to the world." --Louie Giglio

More About Louie Giglio
Giglio was born in 1958 and grew up in a Christian home in Atlanta, Georgia. One morning at 2 AM during his freshman year at Georgia State University in 1977, he decided to follow Christ instead of the party life. That conscious decision led him to become one of the architects of the modern worship style geared towards young people with its emphasis on informal attire, expressive worship and low-key, visually driven sermons.
Giglio's ministry is based on Isaiah 26:8 - "Yes, LORD, walking in the way of your laws, we wait for you; your name and renown are the desire of our hearts" (from the New International Version).
After Giglio graduated from Georgia State University, he earned a Master of Divinity from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Fort Worth, Texas. After finishing seminary, Giglio and his wife Shelley began a weekly Bible study called Choice Ministries at Baylor University. After several years, over ten percent of the student body was attending the weekly study.
In 1995, the Giglios moved from Waco, Texas to Atlanta, Georgia. While flying from Texas to Georgia, Giglio began to plan for a national gathering of Christian college students; this evolved into the Passion conferences. In addition, Giglio, along with Bill Willits from North Point Community Church, began a Bible study called 7:22 for college students from the Atlanta. Giglio led this Bible study weekly until 2005.
In January 1997, Passion hosted its first conference for college students, which lasted four days in Austin, Texas. Two thousand people attended. This launched Passion to the public and it has been followed by conferences and tours yearly. The Passion conferences hosted in January 2005 and 2006 drew thousands of college students to Nashville. In 2000, Giglio and others formed Sixsteps Records, a record label for Christian worship artists. Sixsteps' list of signed artists includes David Crowder Band, Chris Tomlin, Matt Redman, and Charlie Hall. It also releases live albums from the Passion conferences.
In 2007, over 22,000 students gathered in Atlanta, GA, where the missions focused on their "Do Something Now" campaign. This raised $1,500,000 for global ministries on six continents. Giglio and the Passion ministry plan on holding regional events around the US in late 2007 and early 2008, and then go to the nations of the world in 2008 with the Passion World Tour.
Louie Giglio currently resides in Atlanta, in the state of Georgia.

Reviews - What do customers think about Wired: For A Life Of Worship-Student Ed?
We are wired for worship. Nov 21, 2008
Short. Sweet and to the point. It drives home that we are not the central focus in the world. That there is one that is and we need to recognize him. It reminds us how easy it is to become distracted in everyday lives and that we need to see our fickleness and recognize our weaknesses and understand that there is only 1 that deserves worship and it is not the TV, the car, the job, the husband or wife, the boyfriend/girlfriend, my boss it is GOD, the creator and perfector and author of everything.
Good, especially for new Christians Nov 10, 2008
This book was very well written and an easy, quick read. The focus is on people relatively new to faith who are trying to create good journaling habits. While it may work well for some people, I can't say that it changed anything in my faith life.
Tremendous read for a person questioning how to plug in May 23, 2008
I have 2 teen daughters, ages 16 and 19. Each read this book seperately (one was at college). It was interesting that both received similiar ideas about connecting with God through reading Louis Giglio book. Both told me how excited they felt about serving Christ, giving to others, and sharing Jesus message in their everyday lives.
A bibllical view of worship Jan 2, 2007
There has been much confusion about the word 'worship' in evengelical culture. There is a tendency to think of worship as just being about music, a style of music and the fifteen minutes (more or less) before the sermon. We use phrases like 'the worship was really good this morning' or 'I prefer modern worship instead of the old hymns' etc. Much of the church is guilty of this compartmentalized way of thinking.
This book will shatter any misconceptions a reader may have about a) what worship is and b) how we worship. Louie Giglio builds a solid biblical foundation for the idea that worship is an attitude of the heart that bleeds into all of our life: how we think, how we live, how we rest, how we serve and our attitudes toward God and His gifts. Of course, there are implications about how this impacts our worship IN church--but it is more about how we worship God outside of the church.
Although written with a younger audience in mind, this book should be required reading for a Christian regardless of age and spiritual maturity. Many pastors and evangelical leaders should read this book--perhaps there would be great change in our churches and the petty arugments we get into about worship style and form of worship will finally end.
The book is interactive---there are questions and discussion sections that make it a great tool for group study. Giglio has done the church a great service in writing this much-needed book.
Powerful tool for youth workers May 16, 2006
In his book, Wired: For a Life of Worship, dynamic author and speaker Louie Giglio offers teens a fresh look at a lifestyle of worship. Today's youth are searching for meaning, and they want to grow spiritually beyond the packaged church experience. Giglio believes God wants us to know Him intimately and to "live a life that's fully active, awakened to His great love."
In the same way Giglio's bestselling The Air I Breathe was a huge success, the writing in this edgy teen version leaps off the page. His book is divided into two sections: the first half introduces readers to the author's vision for true worship, followed by an interactive "30-Day Worship Journey" that takes readers through the book of Psalms.
The author defines worship as a "whole-life response to God's greatness and glory." You can tell he knows his audience well - the stories and anecdotes are hip and relevant for teens. He offers up-to-date examples to support his theory that worship is an active, ongoing process of walking out our love for our Savior, Jesus Christ.
This book is a powerful tool for youth workers and anyone seeking positive ways to raise up a new generation whose lives are wired for serving God. I wish this had been around when I was a teen. Wired is also perfect for dynamic small group discussion that will change lives and, ultimately, rock the world. - Heather Ivester, Christian Book Previews.com
