"Here is a mother lode of theology, biblical insight, and practical application for pastors and congregations who want 'missional' to be more than clich?. By giving the concept ecclesial traction, these essays help God's people move beyond good intentions to good practice. Van Gelder and company point the way to a life-giving and hopeful future for the church in North America."

Provides a thoroughgoing incarnational model and theological understanding of the church's mission in context, enhanced greatly by a number of excellent case studies. 'Must reading' for church leaders and theological educators alike."
