Description:

What's at stake in our worship? Everything.Worship is the dangerous act of waking up to God and God's purposes in the world. But something has gone wrong with our worship. Too often worship has become a place of safety and complacency, a narrowly private experience in which solitary individuals only express their personal adoration. Even when we gather corporately, we often close our eyes to those around us, focusing on God but ignoring our neighbor. But true biblical worship does not merely point us upward--it should turn us outward as well.In this prophetic wake-up call for the contemporary church, pastor Mark Labberton reconnects Christian worship with biblical justice. From beginning to end, worship must pursue justice and seek righteousness, translating into transformed lives that care for the poor and the oppressed. Labberton shows how to move beyond the comfort of safe worship to authentic worship that is awake to the needs of the world.

Lonnie & Dianne Brennan have authored more than 53 books on a wide range of topics, including children's books, educational books, self-improvement, business mgt., coping, and their ever-popular 15-minute mysteries series. Their popular "Davy found a...." series and other books are now being made available for viewing via electronic and mass-printing media.The authors grew up in adjacent towns in New England. One spent most of his time in the ocean (scuba diving), the other inland involved with health, fitness, and excercise. Their three children often pop up in their stories! And they often spend each of their birthdays celebrating the release of a new short story with the family, most of which are written during long car trips to visit relatives, as all family members chime in to determine the plot.

JOHN ORTBERG is senior pastor at Menlo Park Presbyterian Church in Menlo Park, California. He is the bestselling author of Who is this Man, The Life You've Always Wanted and If You Want to Walk on Water, You've Got to Get Out of the Boat. John and his wife, Nancy, have three grown children.
