Mike Cosper is the director of the Harbor Institute for Faith and Culture, where he works to create resources for Christians living in a post-Christian world. Prior to that, he was a founding pastor at Sojourn Community Church in Louisville, Kentucky, where he served for sixteen years as the pastor of worship and arts.
What is worship? Is it the singing of Christian songs, attending a church service, or encompassing all aspects of life? Rhythms of Grace is written to inspire believers to engage in deeper theological contemplation of authentic worship.

This book shows how the gospel is inherently intertwined with worship, and conversely, worship is fundamentally connected to the gospel.
