Mark Pierson is a strikingly original thinker and practitioner whose influence on alternative worship and emerging church forms has spread worldwide. Whatever our church tradition – liturgical, evangelical, charismatic or alternative, Mark’s challenge is clear: tired patterns of worship do not engage with people beyond the regular congregation (and sometimes not even with them). The last place that many genuine spiritual seekers would try is church. He shows a way of thinking about and practicing worship where real connection with God can happen. The idea of ‘curating’ rather than leading worship invites a potentially huge mind shift about worship practice. Leading worship is not about staying in control of content or delivery, but about exploring creatively the riches of our traditions, the arts, our buildings, music and language to offer worship that better reflects the glory of God. This inspiring, practical book raises the bar in terms of what we expect from worship and then gives us the courage, vision and resources to bring it about.
'This book is inspiring, exciting and should be in the hands of everyone who contributes to any sort of worship.' -- Mirand Threlfall-Holmes, Christianity magazine
