Inter-Varsity Press The Dangerous Act of Worship: Living God's Call to Justice

The Dangerous Act of Worshipunveils how this seemingly innocent act threatens to waking us 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.

Amazingly challenging. Labberton brings us back to the understanding that everything can be and should be worship. This book is a wake up call for America.

Warning! The Spirit of God might use this book to change your life. A prophetic, passionate and reasonable call to the church (right or left) to make every act, an act of worship. It is a call from comfort to faith, and begins to tune your heart to the heart of God.
