Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Labberton’s book is bracing reading that deserves thoughtful meditation and discussion among pastors, lay leaders, and those who occupy the pews—especially in places where those pews have become all too comfortable.” The Clergy Journal
“An important book. Mark Labberton offers a scalding reminder that worship is not about our well-being but the world’s. I can’t imagine any worship leader, or any worshiper, seeing worship in the same way after reading this book.” Tim Stafford, author of Surprised by Jesus
“This book is dangerous. It shakes us from our lethargy. It calls us to a radical reconsideration of our life of discipleship. It pushes us across our global and theological boundaries. This is one of the most challenging books I have read in years.” Stephen A. Hayner, professor of evangelism and church growth at Columbia Theological Seminary
