How can pastors inspire missional faith communities that are willing to participate in God's healing of the world? This book suggests several answers by gathering a variety of contributors who together re-imagine spiritual formation through the lens of mission. It covers such topics as the role of Scripture, congregational discernment, and short-term missions, drawing on case studies from diverse contexts, including Ethiopia, England, Leipzig, and San Francisco.
The contributors offer no quick and easy programs or models to follow. Instead, they call readers to deepen the core practices that have defined Christians for centuries and to reclaim them within the context of cultural adaptation and innovation. Full of rich practical, theological, and sociological insights for example, the idea that spiritual formation for socially privileged churches will involve a process of dispossession and a movement outward into unlikely places this volume offers inspiration for missional church leaders.
