4.0 out of 5 stars excellent vision for Christian community 29 Nov. 2013
By Peter Williamson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book is excellent for getting the right heart towards Christian community in the 21st century, and challenges the subpar attempts of the evangelical church to structure themselves around small groups in a programmatic, simplistic, and ultimately insufficient way.

He worst thing about this book is the cheesy name. The word missiorelate becomes a key term, which is irritating because it's so meaningless. It's the most Christianese word I've ever read, and it clashes with the otherwise down-to-earth nature of the book. It also feels a bit too programmatic for a book which challenges being programmatic. There are a large number of 'definitive' jargony lists, along the lines of "4 types of people you'll find in your church"

But ultimately, Boren's vision of Christian community is the right direction for the church in the west.
4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent inspiring read 4 May 2013
By D. Lee - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Every church leader needs to read this book. I like how the author frames it on principles that are relatable at any congregational size.

My only criticism is that it doesn't give enough real examples of what missio relate looks like. By the end of the book, missio relate almost feels like a search for the holy grail rather than something attainable.

4.0 out of 5 stars Review of Missiorelate 8 Jun. 2011
By Jay Firebaugh - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Scott's new book MISSIORELATE should be read by every small group point person. It's not hard to read, but reading it is hard work! When you finish it, then you're really just getting started. It's not a book of tips and practical insights - but rather a book about figuring out WHY you do small groups and then determining HOW to execute the systems you have to get the results of true discipling.

Scott does a great job of helping us appreciate the value of ALL of our small groups, even those that frustrate us, realizing the benefits of every group and the "story" they are living. But the aim is helping groups not merely settle for "normal". Instead, it's moving people beyond the "How God benefits me" experience to a vision of making Kingdom impact together on the world around us.

This book is about appreciating people for where they currently are, but thinking through how to build ways that keep calling them to be sacricing their time and energy for others and even beyond that to a life of living out ministry & mission with those they are experiencing community with.

Getting more people in more groups is not the answer! Calling people beyond individualism, isolation, and consumerism is! Our job as champions of small group ministry is to do the hard work of thinking through what the end goal really is, and then working backwards from there as we design our church's small group systems. This book is a great help in getting us to think and move in that direction.

4.0 out of 5 stars Missiorelate 20 Jun. 2011
By Tpal - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
If you are a leader in small group ministry this book is definitely worth the read. It's a fresh way of thinking about the approach that we take as small group leaders and influencers toward group life in our churches. Scott does a great job of causing us to think about the underlying themes and philosophies behind our groups and encourages us to think about creating systems that move people from a "self-focused" starting point toward a vision for how they can live in such a way that affects genuine life-change through their small group community.

The Missiorelate questions on pages 79-80 were especially helpful for me as I thought through the expectations that I have for my leaders and for helping them to better understand what they are trying to achieve as they help people take next steps in their spiritual journey. If you are looking for the latest "one-size fits all how-to approach" to small groups, then this book is probably not for you, but if you want a read that stretches you to think about the why behind what you do then I think you will be challenged and encouraged by what you read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Addition to Your Missional Library 10 Aug. 2011
By Todd Smeltzer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
What I like about Scott is the fact he is definitely a practitioner, who has allowed the Lord to continue molding and shaping his ministry to small groups. He has a distinct way of describing ministry experiences in helpful and clarify ways. For instance, his identification of the four different stories of group life was a true benefit.

In addition, Missiorelate is also filled with practical, doable steps for making the transition from "normal" small groups to groups of people who are making tangible differences in the world. If you have not done so already, pick up a copy and you will be bound to glean a thing or two that will be helpful in your journey toward helping people live out their faith.
