Frustrated with a culture of celebrity, emerging and passing fads, feeling disenfranchised from Church on the whole Mike Cosper began a journey. It started with asking “why?” about worship. The answer was the gospel. Front and center and solitary. Cosper posits that the “story shapes the community” and proceeds to walk us through the entire narrative (from Eden to Christ), then wisely covers worship in relation to history, singing, liturgy, and pastoral musicians. Plus, he offers sample service orders. The best aspect of Rhythms of Grace is the one-two punch of Cosper’s casual approachability and his desire for us to lead worship that not only sings well, but it thinks well. Worship that is centered on the gospel, plain and simple.
