Publishers Description 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.

Reviews - What do customers think about Spoken Worship?
a must-have for every church - freedom from the cheesy! Apr 18, 2007
i've been a long-time fan of gerard kelly's writing. but having this volume of his poetry/spoken worship is like water to the soul. i am a worship leader/service designer for an urban church, and we have used most of the pieces in this book in our services. whether we read them aloud or just have them projected on the screen, they are MOVING, they are theologically solid, and most of all, NON-TRITE. a lot of "christian" poetry or media is so chock full of cliche, to just open up the first page and read Kelly's "Rob's God" piece is the most refreshing thing i've read in years! i'm buying a bunch of this book and sending them to my church-staff friends as well as my friends who are not yet Christ-followers. Kelly says what "loving God" is much better and more beautifully than i could attempt to. if there were 6 stars, i'd give it that!
