He has authored and edited multiple books on Christian worship, including "The Unquenchable Worshipper" and the book Facedown which accompanied the album. Some of his most popular songs include Heart of Worship, Let Everything That Has Breath, Once Again, and Blessed Be Your Name, the latter winning the "Worship Song of the Year" award in the 2005 GMA music awards.
He has since launched another album, Beautiful News, and continues to write many more popular songs such as You Never Let Go and Shine.
