About The Air I Breathe

Let Every Breath You Take Be an Act of Worship

Worship is more than singing on Sunday morning. While that’s part of it, worship is the essence of what makes us truly human. God sparked this desire within our hearts from the day He first breathed life into Adam and Eve. Since then, every single human who has walked this planet has participated in this God-given ability, and divine quest. While many have squandered their gift, there are those who find the wonder-filled life of communion with God no matter the time or place.
 
True freedom comes when worship flows through us as naturally as the air we breathe, when the words and actions in our lives resonate with our Creator so deeply that every inhalation is full of meaning. When we understand the holiness of the God who knows the stars by name—and His overwhelming love for each one of us—how can we offer anything less?
 
In The Air I Breathe, Louie Giglio explains in passionate prose what it means to truly live a life of worship, offering insight and guidance for finding our personal path towards connecting with the God of the Universe.

I was encouraged by this book. Mostly I was moved by Louie’s obvious passion for God and his gift for making worship make sense.”

— MATT REDMAN, Author of The Unquenchable Worshipper and The Heart of Worship

In the end, our worship is more about what we do than what we say.”

Passion Movement Founder Inspires Readers to Worship God as Naturally as They Breathe
 
“Some of the most inspiring teaching on worship I’ve ever heard has come from the mouth of Louie Giglio. Having read The Air I Breathe I can now say the same of Louie’s gift to communicate through the written word. This book has inspired me as a worshiper, and as a worship leader.” –Matt Redman, Author of The Unquenchable Worshipper and The Heart of Worship
 
Louie Giglio, best-selling author and founder of Passion Conferences, knows that worship has been woven into the very fabric of our beings. In his newly revised and refreshed edition of The Air I Breathe (Multnomah, Dec. 19, 2017), originally published in 2003, Giglio reminds readers that whether the object of our affection is the Creator or the created, we all worship something.
 
The Air I Breathe challenges readers to reexamine the things that captivate their hearts and to awaken to the reality that there is a battle for our worship every day.
 
“You only have one life,” writes Giglio. “And you only have one life of worship. You have one brief opportunity in time to declare your allegiance, to unleash your affection, to exalt something or someone above all else. Don’t waste your worship on some little god…”
 
The Air I Breathe is a passionate call to allow only God to be elevated to the highest place in our hearts—inhaling all of his wonder and exhaling genuine adoration with our words and actions.
 
The new edition now includes a selection from Giglio’s most recent release with Multnomah, I Am Not But I Know I Am.
