What sounds loud and clear in the pages of this book is Mark's deep desire to see Christians set free to live fully for the glory of God, wherever they are. Where Monday mornings can be as filled with worshipful focus as Sunday mornings. For too long, mission has been seen as the preserve of a handful of specialists. We know this isn't true, but still, church culture celebrates mainly those who are directly paid to do 'God's work'. Mark's book offers us a beautiful revolution - what if all of us recognized our equality of calling, that God intends for all of us to be his missionaries right where we are: pastry-chef, plumber or party-planner? --Rachel Gardner, speaker, writer on youth issues and President of the Girl's Brigade
There is surely no more urgent issue for today's church than how to motivate and equip every Christian to work and witness for God's kingdom. This wise, thoughtful and practical book should challenge and encourage all of us who follow Christ to live more effectively for him in whatever place or position we have been called to. Heartily recommended! --Revd Canon J.John, author and speaker
A fantastic book. Clear, well argued, brilliantly illustrated from both Scripture and modern life, and above all, passionate. Mark, like the great Old Testament prophets, is urging us with both wit and wisdom to get the church out of the buildings and into the world God loves. Both biblical and practical, this should be studied by individuals, home groups and churches. And then acted upon. Truly a word for today. --Mike Pilavachi, Soul Survivor
