shenk on mission


My buddy Joel just sent me a copy of Wilbert R. Shenk's By Faith They Went Out. (Thanks, Joel!) I'm looking forward to reading this little book as soon as I get a chance. A Mennonite and former Fuller professor, Shenk always does a fantastic job of explaining what mission looks like from the margins, and from a global perspective. As San Diego continues to more and more become a global city in which the church is no longer at the center of people's lives, Shenk is a helpful partner in thinking through how we do mission thoughtfully in such a context.

I'm behind on reporting to you what I've read lately. This will have to come after I get a few of those due posts up.
