What happens when two bishops known for their liturgical sensibilities travel to study alternative Christian communities on two continents?

Bishops Mary Gray-Reeves and Michael Perham traveled throughout the U.S. and U.K. to study fresh expressions of church and identify the principles that link these new forms of worship and community. The Hospitality of God captures their practical and inspiring findings and builds a bridge between fresh new voices and the institutional church.

Mary Gray-Reeves is the Bishop of El Camino Real in Northern California and co author of The Hospitality of God: Emerging Worship for a Missional Church. Having ministered across cultural divides throughout much of her career, she is passionate about translating church language and tradition for new contexts and applications. She lives in Monterey, CA.

Michael Perham is Bishop of Gloucester in England, where he has written several popular books on liturgy and the spiritual journey. He has served on the Church of England's Liturgical Commission.
