“Walk This Way: a better path to global engagement” was just released by Dr. Paul McGuinness and 181 Publishing. As Dr. McGuinness writes, God is moving in unbelievable ways around the world, and the Western church has a part to play in the story. But are we in danger of missing out due to an unhealthy approach to global engagement? It’s not that churches aren’t already involved in cross-cultural ministry. It’s that, too often, we bring the wrong mindset to international ministry and move down a rocky path.” Through case studies, practical experience, and biblical principles, “Walk This Way” presents a new model for global ministry that honors the work God is doing and mobilizes the American church to greater engagement. We’re looking forward to reading this book ourselves. Check it out at:

Have you read Steve Addison’s “Pioneering Movements?” Would you have a moment to comment? It looks good. With the subtitle, “Leadership that Multiplies Disciples and Churches,” this book is, according to the author, meant for anyone who wants to “obey Jesus example and call to pioneer movements of disciples and churches throughout the world, until he returns.” With a Forward by David Garrison, Jerry Trousdale wrote, of Pioneering Movements, “Steve Addison’s third book on movements builds on his previous writings by inviting Christ Followers to become “movement pioneers” wherever they live. Pioneering Movements is filled with examples of such people from the early church, Christian history, and modern day movements. Steve makes a compelling case that God can use any Christ Followers to replicate disciple making, while also providing simple, practical steps to get started.” Order it at…
