Paxson Jeancake's 'The Art of Worship' invites readers to explore the intersection of gospel, art, and worship. Each and every Lord's Day, there is the potential for moments of spiritual illumination and transformation to occur in the lives of God's people. In the midst of corporate worship -- through the artistic media of story, imagery, and expression -- people's eyes can be opened to the beautiful, paradoxical truth of the gospel. Gospel-centered worship, however, does not happen in a vacuum. It is crafted and facilitated by human leadership, informed by biblical inquiry and theological conclusions, and fleshed out in the context of a local culture and community.
