Journeying Out: A New Approach to Christian Mission
Format: Paperback|Change

Ann Morisy called my book "dangerous" but she is no less so in her ability to take hold of story and draw out the vital implications for mission. In journeying out Morisy reminds us of the prime calling of the Church - not to sustain and institution but to adapt a community to the new challenges of our day. Journeying out encourages us and builds up our hope so that we can experiment in new ways of engaging with those on the margins of society and be changed by the process of doing so. The key concepts of "story rich lives" and "apt liturgy" are worked out in more detail here and Morisy talks creatively of the "oblique" ways into parish reality. Morisy is a free-lance community theologian and has personally inspired and mentored a colleague of mine whose ministry is one of the most exciting one could know of. Read this book. Seeking Justice: The Radical Compassion of Jesus

The book introduces a new way of thinking about evangelism and is a must for any Church leader. The book is structured to introduce each concept. It is easy to read and understand.

This is an excellent book and a must read for anyone interested in urban mission or church planting. There is warning of the danger of over-emphasis on meeting social needs at the expense of sharing the gospel, but this is not the focus. The chapters on story-telling are stimulating and challenging. Overall, the book should make practitioners think about 'church' and its various forms in the urban context.
