Overview

Have you ever wondered where Jesus might worship if he came to earth for a visit? Would he choose a magnificent cathedral, or would he join a rag-tag group sitting under a tree?
Is there a "right" way or a "wrong" way to worship? Is worship an individual act, or can it only occur in unison with other like-minded people?
Where Egos Dare presents a series of Scriptures and poems that highlight the First Century concept of worship. Whatever your worship preference, may these words inspire you to seek a closer walk with God.

What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

"In this book Glenn calls us to Ecclesia. Intimate fellowship. Devotion to prayer. Courage to act. My prayer is that the reader may find an Ecclesia of fellowship that is devoted to the Lord Jesus Christ and to prayer. There you will find the Spirit of power and love and self-control."

—Norman Goodyear, from the foreword



"Through a series of poems, [Glenn] plumbs the depths of the original church, and compares that to the Life Group which is composed of members that are diverse in background but united in striving to learn more of God, to become more Christ-like in their daily walk, and to support one another. . . . Glenn's insight will be useful to groups, both old and new, attempting to minister to their members with love and understanding."

—Owen R. Keiser, from the foreword
