5.0 out of 5 stars Great introduction to alt.worship, June 14, 2001
By 
"rushan" (Auckland New Zealand) - See all my reviews
This review is from: The Prodigal Project - Journey into the Emerging Church (Paperback)
This book is one of the best around for anyone interested in setting up an alternative worship service/experience. The companion CD-Rom has loads of useful resources and suggestions to help. I would recommend this book to anyone who knows they are unhappy with "trad" worship but don't know how to go about exploring alternatives to the old forms of worship.

5.0 out of 5 stars How to start alt worship - very practical, good stories, March 31, 2010
By 
Darren Cronshaw (Melbourne, Australia) - See all my reviews
This review is from: The Prodigal Project - Journey into the Emerging Church (Paperback)
Michael Riddell, Mark Pierson and Cathy Kirkpatrick The Prodigal Project: Journey into the Emerging Church (London: SPCK, 2001)

Reviewed by Darren Cronshaw

While more and more prodigals do not go to church any more and some who do go find it boring and disconnected to life, these alt.worship practitioners describe their journey of discovering authentic ways of encountering the adventurous God. They obviously love creativity, community and culture, and have tried new things and learned some lessons about bringing those elements into worship. From their experiences with Parallel Universe in New Zealand and Glebe Café Church in Sydney they describe the features of emerging culture that alt.worship connects with: relationality, participation, spirituality, holism, multimedia, play and immediacy. Rather than `run a show for others' they suggest creating space for yourself and some friends, starting small, sharing stories over food, laughing and praying, artistically providing space for people to experience God, and seeing what develops. Further resources are available on the wonderfully creative CD that comes with the book. See also Riddell's Threshold of the Future: Reforming the Church in the Post-Christian West (London: SPCK, 1998).
