Item Description...
Lifestories, the new book from the lead singer of Casting Crowns, Mark Hall.

Community Description
"Lifestories: Finding God's 'Voice of Truth' in Everyday Life" by Casting Crowns' Mark Hall details the real-life origins of the groups' songs, in devotional form.
Most of Hall's stories involve people walking through circumstances that are ordinary but challenging. One of the more poignant lies behind Casting Crown'smost recent No. 1 radio hit, "Praise You in the Storm." It's a ballad inspired by the struggle and eventual death of a young girl the band had befriended (Erin Edwards) in her battle against bone cancer. Mark Hall taps into the process of faith in all its life forms. He has the ability to enter into the emotions and struggles common to us all, and point the way to God.

As a 16-year veteran of youth ministry, Hall is in the real life trenches, dealing with issues of sex, loss, suicide, cutting, and sorrow where the rubber meets the road, where there is no room for error. His sincerity is seen through his tour scheduling choices: Hall schedules his shows around Wed. night ministry and Sunday morning church services. That attitude of authenticity pays off deeply in "Lifestories." At the close of each chapter's song story, he wraps things up with a "Godline" and a "Bottom Line." Godlines are lyrics that Hall openly attributes to God. The devotional comes from the Bottom Line where he challenges readers to apply the chapter's message to their own lives in practical ways.

Inspiring and Annointed  Dec 13, 2007
This book is such an awe-inspiring piece of work. Mark Hall is an annointed man with a great gift. Wonderful for a Bible study also!
Lifestories - Great Stories & For Youth Group Devotions  Nov 5, 2007
Reading Mark's stories behind each of the songs is not only very initeresting, but it also offers a great opportunity for Youth Group discussions and devotions. Mark's ability to translate true life experiences into song and Faith Strengthening stories is truly amazing and useful. Once you start readinig you won't be able to stop. This will be another life long reference book. Hopefully he adds chapters for the new Alter & The Door album
A Life-changing Experience  Jun 13, 2007
I thought Casting Crowns' music was profound in the way that it asks Christians some hard questions. The music serves as a mirror into which Christians can look to see whether or not they are living their lives for Christ. Lifestories, Mark Hall's book, takes the music to an entirely new level. Mark, Casting Crowns' lead singer and main songwriter, tells the stories behind each song and gives the scriptures that correspond with each one. Mark provides questions at the end of each selection that can be used for personal growth or discussion purposes.

Mark is humble, authentic, and transparent in this book. He shares his own struggles, challenges, frustrations, and triumphs. I use this book with my Youth Group at church, and I also use it for a small group Bible study with about sixteen adults. Both groups absolutely LOVE the book. Lifestories has inspired all of us to allow the Holy Spirit to move more freely in us. It has encouraged us to show Christ to the world by the way we love His people.

Finally, I used to serve as one of my church's worship leaders, and I wish we had this book when I served in that capacity. If so, I might have been a much better worship leader and helped to usher our congregation into more authentic worship of the Almighty. Every Christian, worship leader or not, should read this book. It is written for believers of all ages, and it WILL change the way you interact with your Father, Savior, and all of His people!
The music now has faces....  Mar 30, 2007
This is an incredible book. After reading each chapter about a particular song, you have to stop and listen to the song before reading further. When I did this, I found that each song now has faces (that I imagined from the story) to go along with it. Mark Hall has impressed me greatly with his passion for youth ministry....he just happens to play a little music to go along with it.
Challenges readers to truly pursue God  Mar 1, 2007
You are invited into someone's bedroom, and the door is shut behind you. That person takes out his journal and says, "Here. Read this. I want it to encourage you." This is the feeling given by the book Lifestories, written by Mark Hall, lead singer and songwriter for Casting Crowns.

Each chapter is the story of how a particular Casting Crown's song was written. At the end are questions to encourage the reader to dig more deeply into the truth Hall is sharing, and to apply it to his or her own life.

Hall's frankness and vulnerability with the struggles in his life make the book very relevant. Reading Lifestories feels like having coffee with an accountability partner who is encouraging you and spurring you on in your walk with Christ. It is also a very intimate experience.

The main theme of this book is passionate worship of God, not just on Sundays, but on every day of the week, throughout every moment. It challenges readers to pursue God in worship and love as a part of everyday life. Hall speaks of when he comes to church after a week of not pursuing God. He says he feels dried up and needy, like he is sapping life out from the sermon and worship. He then points out that Sunday mornings are a time to come to God with a heart full of worship after walking with God consistently the previous week.

Lifestories challenges its reader truly to pursue God -- to pursue loving Him and knowing Him. With its touching stories and open honesty, it points out the hand of God moving in and about everyday life. - Jenni Ritschard, Christian Book [...]
