Just as diners visit a fine restaurant anticipating the ambiance and meal to come, so first-time guests and members alike come to church to experience the presence of God. In this follow-up book to The Complete Worship Leader, veteran worship leader and pastor Kevin Navarro helps church leaders create a complete worship service by implementing a four-part pattern of worship: longing for, preparing for, experiencing, and talking about a taste of heaven. Approaching the worship service as an act of hospitality, Navarro emphasizes clearing away obstacles and communicating the gospel. He shares practical ideas for churches of all kinds and sizes-everything from assisting guests to using the arts to centering the preaching on Christ. Pastors, worship leaders, and church leaders of any denomination and worship style will benefit from this practical guide.

Move your church from small-picture to big-picture worship A pastor's role in shaping worship is vital. But what if preaching isn't just one part of worship? What if preaching is worship? In Preaching as Worship, veteran preacher Michael Quicke encourages those who preach to open their eyes afresh to glorious big-picture worship--grounded in Trinitarian theology and focused on the pivotal role of Scripture as it directs gathered worship for community formation--urging them to restore worship as an encounter with God. This unique and insightful book offers a clear call for preachers to rethink their worship responsibilities and the importance of preaching--for the sake of their church members and their God. "Michael Quicke's winsome and insightful exploration of preaching as an integral component and reflection of Trinitarian worship is a welcome contribution to thoughtful literature on both preaching and worship. For too long, one has been viewed as simply a prelude or culmination of the other. Quicke helps us understand how worship and preaching function organically and holistically to honor the persons of the Godhead who also comes to us as one."--Bryan Chapell, president, Covenant Theological Seminary; author, Christ-Centered Preaching "This book stretched me and enriched my understanding of preaching and worship."--Craig Brian Larson, editor, PreachingToday.com Michael J. Quicke is C. W. Koller Professor of Preaching and Communication at Northern Seminary in the Chicago area and preaches and lectures across the world. He is the author of 360-Degree Preaching and 360-Degree Leadership.

Drawing together scholars from fields of biblical studies, systematic theology, liturgics, and pastoral theology, In Praise of Worship questions an overemphasis on singing and music (alone) as worship in today's church. Whilst not minimizing moments of conscious and deliberate worship, the authors show that according to a close reading of Scripture and a clear understanding of theology, the whole of our lives is to be considered as worship-glorifying to the Lord who deserves such honor.

As seen on EWTN with over 600,000 copies sold! Bestselling author Scott Hahn unveils the mysteries of the Mass, offering readers a deeper appreciation of the most familiar of Catholic rituals. Of all things Catholic, there is nothing that is so familiar as the Mass. With its unchanging prayers, the Mass fits Catholics like their favorite clothes. Yet most Catholics sitting in the pews on Sundays fail to see the powerful supernatural drama that enfolds them. Pope John Paul II described the Mass as "Heaven on Earth," explaining that what "we celebrate on Earth is a mysterious participation in the heavenly liturgy." The Lamb’s Supper reveals a long-lost secret of the Church: The early Christians' key to understanding the mysteries of the Mass was the New Testament Book of Revelation. With its bizarre imagery, its mystic visions of heaven, and its end-of-time prophecies, Revelation mirrors the sacrifice and celebration of the Eucharist. Beautifully written, in clear direct language, bestselling Catholic author Scott Hahn's new book will help readers see the Mass with new eyes, pray the liturgy with a renewed heart, and enter into the Mass more fully, enthusiastically, intelligently, and powerfully than ever before.
