Equipping God's People to Create Missional Culture

What People are Saying About “Creating a Missional Culture” – Part 4

So here is the last few endorsements for Creating a Missional Culture: Equipping the Church for the Sake of the World.  As you may know, the release date of the book is now August 20th, but it is already available for pre-order right now.  It may be the best time to get the book, because both B & N and Amazon have it at a great discount.  I’m personally guessing that it is selling at the best possible price right now.  It is likely to go up slightly after the release date.  Here is what a couple of more people are saying about the book.  If you want to read all the endorsements in one place, you can go to the InterVarsity Press website.

“Woodward’s fresh views about leadership and church culture and his practical guides and suggestions make this a relevant and important book for every congregation.  The chapters on polycentric leadership alone are worth the price of the book.  Creating a Missional Culture delivers exactly that – a provocative guide for the intentional, Spirit-led creation of a church culture where Christ is incarnated in the lives of individuals and communities.”
- Dr. MaryKate Morse, Professor of Leadership; Spiritual Formation at George Fox Seminary, author of Making Room for Leadership.

“I have been craving a book that would facilitate the re-imagination of church culture, and it is finally here.  This is a book I hope many will devour.”
- Dwight J. Friesen, Associate Professor of Practical Theology at The Seattle School of Theology; author of Thy Kingdom Conneccted

“There is no mistaking that the missional thrust that JR unravels in his book has at its core a profound understanding of spirituality as the propellant for cultivating such culture in our ministry.  While some erroneously insist on dichotomizing between missional and spiritual formation, JR makes a solid case for the necessary integration of the two.  Indeed, authentic spirituality is missional through and through.  JR’s work accentuates this holistic approach too our distinct yet integrated calling as equippers: as an apostle, prophet, evangelist, pastor or teacher.”
- Wil Hernandez, PhD, director of the Master of Arts in Spiritual Formation and Leadership at Spring Arbor University, author of Henri Nouwen and Spiritual Polarities: A Life in Tension
