The New Parish by Paul Sparks, Tim Soerens & Dwight Friesen – Available for Pre-order Now!
Last month I finished reading The New Parish by Paul Sparks, Tim Soerens and Dwight Friesen. I appreciate this book immensely because it takes the missional conversation a step further by developing a strong theology of place. More than that, these guys put into practice what they write about, and the organizations they have developed, The Parish Collective and Inhabit Conference are helping many more people incarnate the good news in the neighborhood.
The New Parish: How Neighborhood Churches are Transforming Discipleship, Mission and Community is now available for pre-order. It is set to be released on May 4, 2014. Here is the endorsement that I wrote for the book.
“What would it look like if God’s reign were to be more fully realized in your neighborhood? In The New Parish, Tim, Paul and Dwight team up to answer this question in concrete ways. With a rich theology of place and practice, they guide us in how to have a humble posture and be a faithful presence in the neighborhood. This is a must-read!”
