In Memoriam: Robert Webber

Special thanks to Sivin Kit’s site for the image above of Robert.

Perhaps no one person has further advanced the cause of the ancient-future worship paradigm in the Church than the great Robert Webber. After a battle with pancreatic cancer, he has passed before us, through the night, into the Day.

His influence will have repercussions for generations to come. His life’s work will continue to shape and inform all that we do at the Institute Of Contemporary & Emerging Worship Studies at St. Stephen’s University.

As you read this post, please take a moment to pray for Robert’s wife and family, and for the community at Northern Seminary.

Thanks to Heidi Turner for letting us know.


Sheltering Mercy and Endless Grace help us rediscover the rich treasures of the Psalms—through free-verse prayer renderings of their poems and hymns—as a guide to personal devotion and meditation. Sheltering Mercy helps the reader pray Psalms 1-75; Endless Grace leads in prayer through Psalms 76-150.

The church has always used the Psalms as part of its prayer life, and they have inspired countless other prayers. Each book contains 75 prayers drawn from the Book of Psalms, providing lyrical sketches of what authors Ryan Smith and Dan Wilt have seen, heard, and felt while sojourning there. Each prayer is a response to the Psalms written in harmony with Scripture. These prayers help us quiet our hearts before God and welcome us into a safe place amid the storms of life.

These artful, poetic, and classic devotional books are a perfect gift, and feature compelling stunning illustrations and hardcover binding, offering a fresh way to reflect on and pray the Psalms. Co-written with Ryan Whitaker Smith, Brazos Publishing.
