"In this readable yet theologically rich book, John Frederick sharply challenges numerous misguided contemporary understandings of worship, the church, and the Christian life. He replaces them with a vision of cross-shaped worship and its result: communities of Christlike disciples living and loving for the sake of the world. Pastors, worship leaders, and all concerned about worship need to engage this book seriously." (Michael J. Gorman, Raymond E. Brown Professor of Biblical Studies and Theology, St. Mary's Seminary & University, Baltimore)
"This is a book the American church has been hungering for for a very long time. It is a wonderfully balanced and biblical engagement with contemporary culture and the church. Most especially, it bases its understanding of worship on the cross, the only lens through which anything can be comprehended. I believe it will deeply impact the worship life of any church that takes the time to engage with it." (Michael Card, musician, author of the Biblical Imagination series)
"Worship in the Way of the Cross offers insights into the importance of story and affirms the congregational community as a matrix for discipleship. The strength of the book is Frederick's case for the church as a place for grace-filled congregational accountability. He fosters critical thinking and challenges worship leaders to elevate excellence and service to the congregation as a countercultural witness in the world." (Robbie Castleman, author of Story-Shaped Worship and Parenting in the Pew)
