Ministry in a Western context has changed considerably in recent years. In large parts of our culture Christianity exists at the margins, not the centers of power and influence. In other words North America, long a region known for sending out missionaries, has itself become a mission field.
Earlier this month, dozens of Christian leaders came together for the Missio Alliance Conference, to reimagine the way the church engages in ministry in light of this new post-Christendom context. Practitioners, theologians, innovators, and missiologists engaged in dialogue about topics as fundamental as the gospel, humanity, Scripture, the Holy Spirit, and the Kingdom of God; all of it framed around the role of the Church in relationship to God’s mission in the world.
These titles include,
The King Jesus Gospel: Contemporary evangelicals have built a ‘salvation culture’ but not a ‘gospel culture.’ The King Jesus Gospel shows how we can recover the old gospel as that which is still new and still fresh — the gospel that encompasses personal salvation, but also much more. This book equips readers for evangelism that is more deeply biblical, and for partnering with God in building a true gospel culture.
Routes and Radishes: Self-identifying as “evangelical” is risky business these days. What is Evangelicalism? Is it a historical artifact? A political philosophy? A set of doctrines? A litmus test for genuine faith? Perhaps more important, what will come to mind when future generations hear something described as “evangelical”? The authors of Routes and Radishes each bringing a different but vital perspective to this conversation. They chart a path that invites you to digest, participate, question, and make the future of Evangelicalism a meaningful part of your walk of faith.
And many more titles by authors such as Scot McKnight, Roger Olson, and Alan Hirsch.
