Exploring the intersection of liturgy and mission

New Book Liturgical Mission!

I am excited to share that I have a new new book that was just released with InterVarsity Press called Liturgical Mission: The Work of the People for the Sake of the World. Here is a brief description of the book.

Modern missional movements have often viewed the historic Christian traditions with suspicion. The old traditions may be beautiful, the thinking goes, but they’re too insular, focused primarily on worship and on the interior life of the church, and not looking outward to evangelism and good works.

In Liturgical Mission, Winfield Bevins argues that the church’s liturgy and sacramental life are in fact deeply missional. He explores the historic practices of the Christian church, demonstrating that they actually do offer a holistic framework for everyday Christian discipleship and mission in the twenty-first century. The result is a book that not only invites all Christians back to the historic liturgy of the church, but also invites those already in liturgical churches to rediscover the missional life that has too often been latent in their own traditions.
