Missional | Joining God in the Neighborhood (Roxburgh)
Alan Roxburgh's book Missional: Joining God in the Neighborhood wrestles with questions about the mission of God in a radically changing world. Roxburgh argues that the missional journey isn't primarily about the church and fixing-it or emerging-it or whatever other language is in vogue just now. Working extensively with Luke/Acts to frame a proposal about the missional journey, Roxburgh questions our pre-occupation with all things church and proposes, on the basis of Luke 10, a fresh way of being God's people in these tumultuous times.
In Missional: Joining God in the Neighborhood, Alan Roxburgh calls Christians to reenter their neighborhoods and communities to discover what the Spirit is doing there--to start with God's mission. Roxburgh then encourages you to shape your local church around that mission. With inspiring true stories and a solid biblical base, Missional: Joining God in the Neighborhood will change lives and communities as its message is lived out.
