This book basically answers the purpose of life on earth: we exist for the King (page 1), realizing that the Bible tells the story of the King, reveals that the King is God, and narrates the story of his actions in regard to the world.
This edited book explores the contribution of honor-shame cultural language in gospel communication, in order to navigate the tension between faithfulness to God’s ancient Word and relevance to the current local and social context.
This book argues that cultural intelligence requires an understanding of what is happening around us and how to engage these changes well. It seeks to answer these questions in a biblically rooted way: Has the church’s approach to doing battle been effectively define and practiced?
This edited book addresses the “unexplored space” (left largely untouched by published missiology) of the conceptual and practical intersection between community development, the least reached, and the emergence of vibrant, growing churches or communities of Jesus followers. The book presents ten principles in this unexplored space, discussing both the theory and thinking behind these principles and how they work out in practice. These ten principles form the basis for the book chapters, which were first developed by workers and a missiologist from OM and invited faculty at a meeting hosted by the Oxford Centre for Mission Studies on October 2018. The geographic spread of cases in the book includes parts of South Asia, Southeast Asia, the Middle East, and Africa, and among refugees in Europe.
The book argues that the Great Commission is “very individualistic as well as highly corporate and nation-focused and touches on all the social/communal elements in between these two poles: family, tribe, community, city and nation” (Kindle location 3705).
This edited book—the eight contributors of which are church planters, seminary faculty, and network leaders—seeks to give church planters and their teams tools to be theologically reflective, spiritually grounded, and missionally agile.
The book is written as a result of the author’s blogs, webinars, and church consultations with “tens of thousands of church leaders through the pandemic” (page 4), along with his coaching many leaders directly and speaking or writing to nearly a million others. It focuses on the following six challenges to the post-quarantine church: (1) gather differently and better; (2) seize opportunity to reach the digital world; (3) reconnect with community near the church; (4) take prayer to a new level; (5) rethink facilities for emerging opportunities; and (6) make lasting changes that make a difference. The intent of the book is to help pastors and church leaders prepare themselves for the post-quarantine era.
The book is written by three generations of pastors, preachers, and leaders who seek to answers these questions: “Why are young adults, the most diverse in America, so difficult to reach by the traditional mainline church?
This compiled and edited volume centers around Matthew 24:14, which serves as the basis for the title of the book.
