Book Review: The Air I Breathe
Title: The Air I Breathe
Author: Louie Giglio
5 out of 5 stars
Wow. The Air I Breathe by Louie Giglio taught me so much about worship. As soon as I finished the last page, I immediately wanted to share it with others. This is a book that shouldn’t collect dust on a book shelf, it’s a book that should be passed around from person to person so that they can understand what worship is.
The book was an easy read with eleven chapters, it kept my attention throughout the entire thing and it was easy to follow the logic and flow of the author, Louie Giglio.
“Louie Giglio is paster of Passion City Church and the founder of the Passion movement. Since 1997, Passion has gathered college-age young people at events across the U.S. and around the world, uniting millions of students in worship, prayer, and justice.”
The book dives in from the beginning with the argument and fact that we are all worshipers. We were created to bring pleasure and glory to the God who made us. We were all made to worship. Worship is our response to what we value most.
Some of my favorite quotes from the book:
“We’re talking about everybody on planet earth… a multitude of souls proclaiming with every breath, what is worthy of their affection, their attention, their allegiance. Proclaiming with every step what it is they worship.”
“It seems we all are eventually captivated by the question of why. Why are we here? Is there a reason for our lives? Is there something we’re uniquely destined to do? It’s the age-old dilemma – what’s the purpose of life? The answer begins and ends with God.”
“God is always seeking you. Every sunset. Every clear blue sky. Every ocean wave. The starry host of night. He blankets each new day with the invitation “I am here.”
“God is the center of everything that exists. Above all the little gods of earth, He alone is the Creator. Sustainer. Originator. Life Giver. Beauty Maker.”
“For me, I’ve got to keep making sure that what matters most, matters most to me.”
“Whatever you worship, you imitate.
Whatever you imitate, you become.”

Some other awesome reviews of the book:
“Don’t read The Air I Breathe unless you want to reexamine your life to see whom or what you are truly worshiping in a daily basis. Louie spells it out in plain language: Learning the real meaning or worship is the most essential element in the spiritual journey of the Christiean. In the end, our worship is more about what we do than what we say.”
“This book is a challenging reminder that our worship is for God and not for ourselves.”
As always thanks for reading this book review!
