In this time of post-Christendom, worship and mission are to be integrated anew. This is the view of Alan Kreider %26 Elear Kreider. Worship and Mission After Christendom looks at how we can re-think our understanding of 'worship' and of 'mission'. In Worship and Mission After Christendom, authors Alan Kreider %26 Elear Kreider discuss how mission is w emerging as God's mission, where God is calling all Christians to participate in His plan, and how Worship is changing too; becoming more narrative-based, telling the story of God and celebrating His works both past and present to inspire us to live in hope as people of God.
