Mark Labberton reconnects Christian worship with issues of injustice in this prophetic book. From beginning to end, worship must do justice and seek righteousness, translating into transformed lives that care for the poor and the oppressed. Move beyond the comfort of safe worship to authentic worship that challenges injustice.What's at stake in our worship? Everything.^^Worship is the dangerous act of waking up to God and God's purposes in the world. But something has gone wrong with our worship. Too often worship has become a place of safety and complacency, a narrowly private experience in which solitary individuals only express their personal adoration. Even when we gather corporately, we often close our eyes to those around us, focusing on God but ignoring our neighbor. But true biblical worship does not merely point us upward--it should turn us outward as well.^^In this prophetic wake-up call for the contemporary church, pastor Mark Labberton reconnects Christian worship with biblical justice. From beginning to end, worship must pursue justice and seek righteousness, translating into transformed lives that care for the poor and the oppressed. Labberton shows how to move beyond the comfort of safe worship to authentic worship that is awake to the needs of the world.Foreword by John Ortberg^Acknowledgments^^1. What's at Stake in Worship?^2.

PRODUCT DETAIL

Mark Labberton

Mark Labberton (Ph.D., University of Cambridge) joined Fuller Theological Seminary faculty in 2009 as Lloyd John Ogilvie Associate Professor of Preaching and Director of the Lloyd John Ogilvie Institute of Preaching after 16 years of service as senior pastor of First Presbyterian Church of Berkeley, California. Dr. Labberton has been involved in ministry for over 30 years and has spoken before a broad range of audiences, including numerous conferences and events for the Presbyterian Church (USA), InterVarsity Christian Fellowship, the National Pastors Convention, and the International Justice Mission. He has also taught courses at New College Berkeley for Advanced Christian Studies.
In 1982 Labberton co-founded the Christian International Scholarship Foundation (CISF) - an organization funding the advanced theological education of Christian leaders from the Majority World, including executives of relief organizations, college and seminary faculty, and denominational presidents - and served on the board of CISF for 17 years. He has also worked closely with John Stott Ministries, the U.S. member of Langham Partners International, which provides books, scholarships, and seminars for Majority World pastors. Labberton served as chair of John Stott Ministries from 2001 to 2004 and co-chair of the John Stott Ministries Global Initiative Fund from 2004 to 2007. Today he continues to contribute to the mission of the global church as a senior fellow of the International Justice Mission.


Labberton recently published The Dangerous Act of Worship: Living God's Call to Justice (2007), and in early 2010, InterVarsity Press will be releasing his next book on worship and the injustices of the heart, which he sees as the bedrock of much public injustice called The Dangerous Act of Loving Your Neighbor: Seeing Others Through the Eyes of Jesus. He has published articles in periodicals such as Christianity Today; Radix, and Leadership Journal, the latter which he also serves as contributing editor.
