READS

This is a "missional bibliography" of sorts. If you're interested in a reading list on missional communities, pick something off this list. I'll continue adding to it. Have recommendations? Send them my way!

Missional Theory
These are books that cover the general concept of missional fairly well.

Reading the Bible w/ a Missional Lens, or a missional hermeneutic
Books that discuss how we read the Bible is important to how we understand the concept of missional.

A People's Church History, or a missional history of the Church
Missional is not mission based on power or privilege. It's therefore important to read Christian history from a voice that does not represent these.

Mission and Worship
Missional communities are worshiping communities. These books explore how a missional posture impacts how we worship.

Mission and Evangelism
Missional assumes the announcement of God's good news. These books re-imagine the spiritual practice of evangelism.

Missional Spirituality
To remain missional means practicing Christian spirituality in a particular way. These books offer ideas of the kind of practices that shape a missional Christian.

Organizing for Mission
Becoming a missional community means that we are organized in a way that keeps us externally focused.

Justice, Mercy and the Mission of God
Assuming that God is already at work within a given context changes how we approach those in need, on the margins, etc. These books are helpful in re-orienting our works of justice and mercy.
