What Is Worship? DVD: Now Released!


The What Is Worship? DVD we’ve been working on for years is finally released.

It’s all about widening the imagining of worship we have in our day, to a fully-scoped worldview. Irenaeus of Lyons said, “The glory of God is a human being, fully alive.” That idea has driven me for the past 20 years immersed in the world of contemporary and emerging worship leadership.

Finally, after many years of work, the new What Is Worship? DVD is out, including my “all over the world” interviews with:

N.T. Wright, Matt Redman, Brian Doerksen, John Eldredge, David Ruis, Kathryn Scott, Derek Morphew, Tim Hughes, Nigel Briggs, Don Williams, John Wimber (well, this one wasn’t live), Peter Fitch and Peter Davids.

I’m doing W?W events in London and Holland in 2 weeks with Dr. Peter Fitch, and beginning to do some Coram Deo events (ancient/present nights of liturgical/contemporary worship) out and about.

Thus begins the next phase of the journey.

Watch for the new Institute Of Contemporary & Emerging Worship Studies we’re now founding at St. Stephen’s University, as well.

Sheltering Mercy: Prayers Inspired by the Psalms

Sheltering Mercy, along with its companion volume, Endless Grace, helps 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.

The church has always used the Psalms as part of its prayer life, and they have inspired countless other prayers. This book contains 75 prayers drawn from Psalms 1-75, providing lyrical sketches of what authors Ryan Smith and Dan Wilt have seen, heard, and felt while sojourning in the Psalms. 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.

This artful, poetic, and classic devotional book features compelling custom illustrations and foil-stamped hardcover binding, offering a fresh way to reflect on and pray the Psalms.
