Encountering God Together
Biblical patterns for ministry and worship
by David Peterson
Publisher:IVP(Inter Varsity Press)
"I am often disturbed or disappointed by what I experience when I 'go to church'," says David Peterson. Here is a dense tool-like exposition of church based ministry. As Peterson writes, "We encounter God by listening to what he has revealed to us in Scripture and by responding to the work of his Son, as the gospel directs." This title offers more uses of the word "edification" that you might expect in a year of reformed theological education. So conservative it is: creative it isn't! It covers a broad range of topics including prayer, scripture reading, preaching, bodily expression, liturgy, evangelism, and emotion. It's tight and hot on being theologically precise throughout.
