“A wonderful guide to what it truly means to be a disciple.” – GAVIN CALVER, Director of Mission / England, Evangelical Alliance
“Offers encouragement and great wisdom for leaders who want to equip their congregations for today’s mission context. Highly recommended!” – PAUL HARCOURT, National Leader of New Wine England.
“There is no greater commission, no higher calling given to us, than to make disciples of nations and peoples. John skilfully unpacks how to do this from a foundation and motivation of the great love and grace we have all received.” – DR JONATHAN OLOYEDE, National Day of Prayer UK.
The mandate to make disciples of every nation until Christ returns remains unchanged. As the Church and individuals, our mission is to be a bridge between God and those who don’t yet know Him. But society has shifted, and the ways in which we have done mission in the past are no longer relevant.
Mission-Shaped Grace is an attempt to capture what the author believes God has been teaching His people about mission in our modern-day culture. The 5 Missional Practices for the 21st Century contained in this book will help us to reach out to our family, friends and work colleagues with the message of hope.
These simple practices become profound when offered to others in the power of the Spirit and with love. The first half of the book establishes the key principles of missional discipleship and the second illustrates the 5 Missional Practices, with practical examples, so we can see God’s Kingdom come, here and now.
