Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Heaven’s Symphony by Steve Swanson is “your invitation to unlocking divine encounters through worship” as the cover states. This is a wonderful discussion about true worship and how it should be approached. I have highlighted and starred many parts for future reference. Not only is this a great resource for worship leaders but also it is a helpful instruction for individuals who want to encounter God’s presence. Swanson’s sharing of his life and personal experiences in this worship journey is very interesting. He tells of his early years and the “side excursion” that he takes and how he is recalled to his true purpose. His journey is inspiring. Yet, the main focus of Heaven’s Symphony is a focus on the purpose of worship for a body of believers and for each individual. This straightforward and powerful message will guide the mind and heart into a clearer vision of what worship is and seeking God’s presence. I recommend this book which I received through TBCN in exchange for an honest review. This is a book to be reread and referenced many times. It has the power to change the way one views worship and enters into worship.
Heaven’s Symphony by Steve Swanson is his personal story of how music has affected his relationship with God. Right from the start the author states that he experiences God through sounds. I really found that statement interesting as I had never thought about that before. Not just with music, but artists with color, author’s with words, etc. I also enjoyed how he realized all the sounds of nature as creation gives glory to God, again another interesting perspective. After doing an extensive Bible study on the book of Revelation, I did come from that with a new realization of just how important music and song is to the worship of God. This book helped reinforce that. I received a copy of this book for an honest review from The Book Club Network, Inc. and the opinions are my own.
Heaven's Symphony explains how worship is so much more than music. It is more than communication. It is an experience. The author describes his experiences in how he obtained his closeness. This book is for anyone who is looking for more in worship. I received the book from the Book Club Network in exchange for my honest opinion.
Can we really feel God through our worship? Can God really talk to us through the music in our lives? Yes He can and He really does. Mr. Steve Swanson shows us how God has worked in his life and the lives of those he has ministered to, prayed with and worshiped with. He shows us that to follow what God has in store for us is often not what we have planned for our lives. But what happens when we follow where God wants us to be? MIRACLES HAPPEN. Mr. Swanson takes on a more eclectic approach in his beliefs and his writings. Although I did not fully embrace all of the things Mr. Swanson shared in his book I can see Heaven’s Symphony in my life. Can you see it in yours? I was given this book by bookfun.org in exchange for my honest review.
In this revelation, Steve Swanson gives testimony to the many facets of his relationship with God, and offers his experiences so that others can attain closeness with God. He describes the sounds of heaven through the sounds of the simplest things in life, and transcribes those sounds into music, Heaven's Symphony.... Also discussed are the steps used to effectively speak to God through thanksgiving, praise and worship. As the author states, "obedience is the key to staying in God's presence.... placing more faith in God's provision, goodness and wisdom...." The author's experiences and wisdom are very intense and passionate, and resonate with the notes of sounds we hear every day.

I just finished reading Heaven’s Symphony. Ask me if I liked it and I will say “WHAT DIDN’T I LIKE ABOUT IT?????” I’m not sure if I knew what to expect when reading this book but I was fascinated to pick it up because music is something that speaks directly to my heart and I guess I wanted to find out what the author meant by “unlocking divine encounters through worship”. This book was wonderful - start to finish. I could relate to some of what the author talked about personally in that I have always been drawn to nature and never really knew why. I guess I figured it was because I like quiet nature noises versus loud city noises, I feel peaceful and relaxed and have always said I feel “closer to God” when in nature than not. Now I know a little more why - Nature sings to God continually and I have been experiencing that without realizing it. It was like the author turned the light on for me and I was able to see that yes, that is what I experience out there in nature - a continuation of the running conversation I have with God all the time. Another part of the book that I enjoyed was the explanation of how worship sets the stage for receiving the Holy Spirit before a church service. We experience that in our church every week and it wasn’t until the author here put that feeling that I have into words that I was able to say, “Yes, I know what he’s talking about.” And I’ve been to multiple churches in my life and that feeling of free flowing worship while “worshipping (singing)” isn’t present at every church. I loved this book. I was excitedly telling my son about it as he loves music too and he asked me if he could read it too. This is a gem of a book…one that I hope many people will pick up and read because I believe they will be blessed too. I received these books for free from the author and The Book Club Network in exchange for my honest review.
