Product Description

Does Sunday morning leave you with a sense of awe? It should!

Church services are an opportunity to gather together and encounter God. More than that, God builds the church through us as we use his gifts to minister to one another.

Yet . . . have you experienced services that downplayed their focus on God's presence to emphasize fellowship and ministry? Or ones whose "worship" had little sense of believers' coming together to minister to one another? How do we regain the right balance in our services?

Here David Peterson will teach you:
  • The biblical foundations of worship
  • The meaning and purpose of gathering together
  • What acceptable worship is
  • How to plan corporate worship biblically and creatively
  • A true measure of church growth
  • How we edify the church
  • Patterns and varieties of service models
  • How to structure each service to take worshipers on a meaningful journey together

Almost fifteen years ago, David Peterson's book Engaging with God rocked my world. I had never read a book that so effectively combined faithful biblical scholarship with a passion for the gospel and linked both of them to what we call 'worship'. It remains my number one book to recommend on the theology of worship. His new book, Encountering God Together, is a longawaited follow-up, providing biblical, practical, and insightful guidelines for thinking through how God wants us to meet with him as we meet with each other. He covers a broad range of topics including prayer, Scripture reading, preaching, bodily expression, liturgy, evangelism, and emotions. And as you'd expect, the beauty and power of Christ's atoning work shine throughout. Tight in all the right places and encouraging biblically informed f reedom everywhere else, Encountering God Together should be read by anyone involved in planning or leading gatherings of the church.
-Bob Kauflin,

What a breath of fresh air for our meeting with God and one another! David brings his theological insights and his pastoral longings together to help us reflect on how we do church in community. This is a wonderfully healthy and practical guide and challenge for those who lead and speak in Christian gatherings, but also for all of us who participate. To know better what we are doing and why will help us to make the very most of these times.
-Paul Perkin,

David Peterson has done an excellent job in applying the theological framework of his earlier book, Engaging with God, to the practical realities of corporate worship within the life of the church. This book is fair-minded and generous, full of biblical insight and practical wisdom. Leaders of churches and congregations, preachers and musicians alike will all benefit from it.

Minister and Team Leader, Above Bar Church, Southampton, UK
