The Hospitality of God

Emerging Worship for a Missional Church

by Mary Gray-Reeves and Michael Perham


Price: £12.99
Publisher:SPCK (Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge)
Published:March 2011
Our God is a gracious, kind, welcoming and hospitable God. This title reveals a journey of exploration, celebration and compelling hope regarding our hospitable God. Sadly the church has grown weary or failed in sharing this hospitality to everyone and so this pilgrimage of theory and examples of practice regarding emerging worship for the missional church is a valued contribution. Analysis and cross-Atlantic resources and reflections are well mapped in this fresh and confident fusion of emerging and traditional churchmanship.
A well informed book that sensitively handles the deeply rooted Anglican traditions and gathers them together, through participation and dialogue, with core missional convictions. There is room for questioning and engagement, with grace and generosity, with liturgy, and the worship life of Emerging and Fresh Expressions of church. Truly both inspiring and insightful!
