These books share insight on some of the foundations of what we believe and our DNA here at Sojourn Church.
Here is a description of Faithmapping:
“Most Christians and their respective churches emphasize one aspect of Christian living over another—focusing on missions or worship or even the Bible for example. It’s as if they are trying to navigate with mere fragments of a map—different parts of the good news—and so they fail to see the whole picture. Daniel Montgomery, lead pastor of the fast-growing Sojourn Community Church in Louisville, and Mike Cosper, founder of Sojourn Music, argue that we need to put the collective fragments together, recovering the whole gospel for the whole church, and taking it into the whole world.”
And below is a description of Mike Cosper’s book, Rhythms of Grace:
“Confusion abounds when trying to define the term “worship.” Is it singing? A service? Something that encompasses all of life? Bringing biblical truth to bear on this critical issue, Mike Cosper, an experienced worship leader, argues that all true worship has one object (God), two contexts (the gathered church and the scattered church) and three audiences (God, the church, and the world). Writing from the conviction that the gospel is the heartbeat of true worship, Cosper explores four key practices (liturgy, song, style, and creativity), showing that worship is fundamental to spiritual formation. This eminently readable book, designed for church leaders and laypersons alike, offers a vibrant theology of worship that is biblical yet contextual, and systematic yet practical.”
Another cool thing about these books is the design of the covers was done by one of our Sojourn members, Tyler Deeb.
