Book Review:

"Much ink and many pages have been devoted to all of the missional issues facing the Western church today. As our culture becomes more post-Christian with each passing day, we are all realizing that what has worked in the past is no longer working, that we are far less effective for the Kingdom than we were even 10 years ago. But we would suggest it isn{u2019}t because we don{u2019}t know what the Great Commission states or the imperatives of the Gospel, or that our church services just aren{u2019}t getting it done. It{u2019}s because we are in the midst of a discipleship crisis in the Western church. The people sitting in our pews are rarely becoming like the people we read about in Scripture. They may come to a worship service, join a small group or even tithe, but their lives just don{u2019}t seem to look like Jesus{u2019} life. The truth of the matter is that we don{u2019}t have a missional problem or leadership problem in the Western church. We have a discipleship problem. If we make disciples like Jesus made them, we{u2019}ll never have a problem finding leaders or seeing new people coming to faith. The central issue is that we have no idea how to make disciples who can do the things that Jesus did for the reasons Jesus did them. Building a Discipling Culture is the product of more than 25 years of hands-on discipleship practice in a post-Christian context that has turned into a worldwide discipling movement, dealing specifically with how to make the types of missional disciples Jesus spoke of. We all want to make disciples. Most of us are unsure how to do it. Dallas Willard put it this way: 'Every church needs to be able to answer two questions. One, do we have a plan for making disciples? Two, does our plan work?' For most of our church communities, we have a plan, but the plan isn{u2019}t working. If you find yourself in this situation, this book is for you." -- Publisher's description.

Book Review:

Despite what we believe about Him personally, there’s no denying Jesus of Nazareth’s overwhelming resume as the greatest leader of all time. Exploring Jesus’ own words, actions and legacy, leadership trainer and former Christian minister Keith Chow not only discovers a wealth of helpful tools and wisdom–but how Jesus also invites us into life and leadership with Him through a surprisingly simple yet dangerously exciting way.

Book Review:

This project explores the relationship between worship, discipleship, and evangelism within the missional church movement. Engaging contributions from liturgical theology, Christian ethics, and post-Christendom evangelism, the book proposes a missional approach to worship that, when integrated with a praxis-oriented discipleship, cultivates Jesus' character among God's people. Along the way, the project attends to the Holy Spirit's transformative presence, the liturgical rhythms of remembering and anticipating, and the practices of hospitality and compassion. In the end, Cultivating an Evangelistic Character contends that the Spirit works through the integration of worship and discipleship to form God's people. In other words, God's people become evangelistic, or as Newbigin said, "the hermeneutic of the gospel."

Book Review:

Confusion abounds regarding what it means to be missional. Is it about social action? An emphasis on outreach? Being organic instead of program-driven? This book provides succinct, clearly written, and biblical answers. With the theological insight of a scholar and the warm personal illustrations of a pastor, Dick Wiedenheft shares insights and experiences gained over his own fifteen-year missional journey. -What does missional mean? -Why is it important? -How will it change my life or my church? -What are some simple ways to begin? After reading this book, you will know what it means to be missional, why becoming missional is so important, and what practical steps you can take to begin. ""If you desire to better understand the meaning of missional, my suggestion is that you start here."" --Mike Breen, author of Building a Discipling Culture ""The Meaning of Missional removes the buzz from the word missional and provides a biblical framework and practical steps forward from an experienced practitioner. From the pastor to the ordinary follower of Jesus, this book will help move the church to live into her sentness again!"" --Gina Mueller, board chair and regional hub leader, 3DM ""Simple and profound. Pastor Wiedenheft has done a masterful work in leading the readers of his book to the basics of the church and Christian life according to the Scriptures . . . This is a 'must' read for pastors and congregants in order to know more about the profound subject of the mission of God and its implications in simple but practical terms for the contemporary church."" --Samuel Barkat, Chief Organizational Development Officer, Wycliffe Bible Translators USA ""In The Meaning of Missional, Dick shares a working pastor's hope and humility as he offers a concise and concrete introduction to what 'missional' means for the life and work of a church . . . He is the best kind of guide because he's still doing the work he describes."" --Gregory L. Jao, Senior Assistant to the President, InterVarsity Christian Fellowship ""As a pastor, Dick Wiedenheft has ached over how easily we the church get off track. We forget that we are first and foremost a missional people, for the simple reason that we belong to a missional God. What Dick has written comes out of serious biblical study, extensive theological inquiry, and, most importantly, working it all out in the pressures and challenges of pastoral ministry. I will be commending this book as widely as possible."" --Darrell Johnson, Regent College Dick Wiedenheft is a pastor and a certified coach and frontier leader with the 3DM Missional Discipleship movement. He holds a DMin in Discipleship and Mission from Northern Seminary, and has also served as an overseas missionary and worked to address urban hunger (in Washington, DC). He lives with his wife and four children in Westchester County, New York.

Book Review:

As Christians we want our relationship with God to grow, to mature. We consider things like our devotional life and spiritual formation as fundamental to our Christian faith. But then there's the rest of life - young kids or long hours at work, financial pressures, illness in the family, high points, disappointments, faith crises. We want a faith that's deep - but also a life that works.How do we get a life beyond the quiet time? In REAL GOD, REAL LIFE popular speaker Jo Saxton shows us how we can follow in Paul's footsteps and 'train ourselves to be godly'.Full of practical ideas and anecdotes, this is spiritual formation for everyone.
