5.0 out of 5 stars The church & mission in post-Christendom, 19 Nov. 2010
N. Richardson (N Yorkshire, England) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Missional Church: a Vision for the Sending of the Church in North America (Paperback)
Nine chapters, all beginning with 'missional' (church, challenge, context, vocation, witness, community, leadership, structures and connectedness) look at the meaning of church; its missiological role and the changing understanding of what that should be; the relationship between the church and the kingdom and reign of God; and how all of this fits together against the backdrop of post-Christendom. None of these are particularly new themes, but the book weaves them together in interesting ways, making incisive comments on the way the church views the world and vice versa. Much of the book points towards emerging church, intentional community and new monasticism. It's a delightfully easy read, but no less academic for all that (containing frequent reference to Kung, Bosch, Moltmann and many others). A book to challenge and inspire - and one that's not easy to put down.
