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.

The Art of Worship is about transitioning our understanding and practice of worship to one of design or curation. According to Mark Pierson, a pioneer in worship, worship needs to be seen as an art form rather than a linear task of filling in the gaps on an order of service. Many practical examples are used to illustrate ways in which worship in regular services as well as in specially designed spaces inside and outside the church building can be designed and delivered for spiritual formation and mission.

Curation is a term usually used in the art world for the role of imagining and overseeing an exhibition or art experience. However the word is now being adopted by people in alternative worship, as it affords a very different and inventive way of thinking about how to lead a service or praise event. Rather than simply presiding over liturgy or fronting a band, curation involves negotiating between institutions and artists and making do with what is to hand to create something brilliant. The hope is that moments of epiphany will be experienced as God is invited to be and breathe in the space, and people make connections with their own lives and stories. Curating Worship is in two parts. The first considers the kind of thinking, skills and disciplines involved in good curation. The second consists of in depth interviews, which tease out from people who have curated amazing worship experiences around the world, the ideas and theories behind their approaches and the practical processes involved.

This guide approaches the rich seasons of Advent to Lent playfully, yet with yearning and determination. Words ancient and new, stories for the young and old, engage readers in this annual unfolding of miracles and mystery. Along this road, often curvy and rocky, we follow the way of the ancient O Antiphons, predecessors to the hymn "O Come, O Come Emmanuel," as well as fifty-five twenty-first century poets, writers, and contributors to the "Godspace" blog from eight countries who offer fresh interpretations of what it means to be waiting for Christ. A JOURNEY TOWARD HOME provides daily reflections from many theological and cultural perspectives, shared family activities, and recipes that will enrich the season for all seekers. Praise for A Journey Toward Home: Soul Travel From Advent to Lent: This guide is sustenance for the soul. For those wanting to redeem their experience of Christmas from the soulless rush of commercialism so much a part of our modern-day festivities, A Journey Toward Home is a rich and nourishing resource that will bring the seasons of Advent through Epiphany alive to you again. Simply beautiful. Michael Frost, Morling College, Sydney and author of Incarnate: The Body of Christ in an Age of Disengagement, The Shaping of Things to Come, Road to Missional, and many other great books! "A Journey Toward Home" is not a resource book in the usual sense - there are no lists of "10 ways to celebrate Christmas." Its a book of stories from a wide range of people. (An amazing range actually). Each story opens up the content of that day in ways that are heart-warming and heart-wrenching. Its not sentimental. The stories have substance and lead to insights and responses that are unexpected. This is a unique resource for personal, group and congregational reflection during these seasons. I will be drawing from it again and again for many years to come. Mark Pierson, worship curator and author, The Art of Curating Worship. This book is an invitation on a pilgrimage- not only through the seasons from Advent to Epiphany, but through the heart of Scripture, Christian tradition and the rich lives of those who contributed to the collection- and like all true pilgrimages, it is the journey itself that will transform you. Jamie Arpin-Ricci, "The Cost of Community: Jesus, St. Francis & Life in the Kingdom" Whether you have celebrated Advent for many years or are new to the tradition, this book is a treasured resource. Its pages are filled with insightful writers, poets and artists who will unsettle and reorient you. While leading you down familiar Advent paths, you'll discover new twists and bends. The combination of traditional and innovative perspectives leads you to the threshold of spiritual transformation. Are you ready to take that step toward home?

The Holy No

In this book Adam Hearlson argues that Christians can say a holy “no” to oppression and injustice through the church’s worship practices. “To speak the holy no,” Hearlson says, “is to refuse to be complicit in the oppression and violence of the ruling power. It is the courageous critique of the present and its claims of immutability.” Hearlson draws widely from Christian history to uncover ways the church has used its traditional practices—preaching, music, sacrament, and art—to sabotage oppressive structures of the world for the sake of the gospel. He tells the stories of particular subversive strategies both past and present, including radical hospitality, genre bending, coded speech, and apocalyptic visions. Blending history, theory, and practice, The Holy No is both a testament to the courage of Christians who came before and an encouragement to take up their mantle of faithful subversion.
