Frost and Hirsch present a clear understanding of how the church can change to face the unique challenges of the twenty-first century. This missional classic has been thoroughly revised and updated.

ReJesus asks the following questions: • What ongoing role does Jesus the Messiah play in shaping the ethos and self understanding of the movement that originated in him? • How is the Christian religion informed and shaped by the Jesus that we meet in the Gospels? • How do we assess the continuity required between the life and example of Jesus and the subsequent religion called Christianity? • In how many ways do we domesticate the radical revolutionary in order to sustain our religion and religiosity? • How can a rediscovery of Jesus renew our discipleship, the Christian community, and the ongoing mission of the church? These questions take us to the core of what the church is all about. Rather than reformation, the authors call their task re-founding the church because it raises the issue of the church's true Founder or Foundation. This theme is of particular importance at the dawn of the twenty-first century as many attempt to address Christianity's endemic and long trended decline in the West. The authors feel that a spiritual, theological, missional, and existential crisis looms in the West.

The promises of God formed the basis of John Wesley's optimism of grace. Wesley believed God not only could but in fact would fulfill all his promises to bring salvation to the nations; to make new heavens and a new earth; to liberate the whole creation from its bondage to decay (Rom. 8:21). This collection of essays by respected Wesleyan theologian Howard A. Snyder reflects the spirit of Wesley's optimism of grace. The first half of this collection offers an overview of Wesley's theology and practice, particularly with regard to gospel, mission, and culture. Part Two examines the inter-dynamic between church renewal and global mission. The collection also includes Wesleyan appraisals of Clark Pinnock's theology and the ecclesiology of Karl Barth. Howard A. Snyder serves as distinguished professor and chair of Wesley Studies at Tyndale Seminary in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Previously he was professor of history and theology of mission in the E. Stanley Jones School of World Mission and Evangelism at Asbury Theological Seminary in Wilmore, Kentucky from 1996 to 2006. He has also taught at United Theological Seminary, Dayton, Ohio, and pastored in Chicago and Detroit. He has written numerous books, including " The Problem with Wineskins " (IVP), " The Radical Wesley " (IVP) and, most recently " Populist Saints: B. T. and Ellen Roberts and the Birth of Free Methodism " (Eerdmans). "

"Fresh Expressions of Church": Neue Glaubensgemeinschaften sprießen plötzlich an den ungewöhnlichsten Orten aus dem Boden – in Cafés, Fitnesscentern, Pubs und unter Leuten, die ein gemeinsames Interesse verbindet wie Fahrräder reparieren, filzen oder kochen. Und Christen lernen auf ganz neue Art, ihren Glauben im Alltag zu leben. Michael Moynagh erklärt, was eine Fresh X ist, wie sie funktioniert und warum es sie geben sollte. Er erläutert die Schritte, die man gehen muss, um eine Fresh-X zu gründen, ohne einen Fahrplan vorzugeben. Wer Michael Moynaghs neues Buch zur Hand nimmt, bekommt keine theoretische Abhandlung, aber eine theologisch kluge Hinführung zur Praxis, durchsetzt mit einer Fülle von ermutigenden und berührenden Erfahrungen und Geschichten. Oft heißt es dabei "how to", aber ebenso oft "It is the Spirit's Agenda". Und das alles mit der gewohnt soliden Qualität des britischen Vordenkers für Fresh Expressions." Prof. Dr. Michael Herbst, Universität Greifswald Michael Moynagh versteht es in seinem Praxisbuch sowohl theologisch-tiefgreifend, als auch praxisnah-inspirierend zu schreiben. Wer dabei ist, neue Gemeindeformen im deutschsprachigen Kontext zu realisieren, wird durch die zahlreichen "Pioneer-Stories" zusätzlich herausgefordert und unterstützt. Eine hervorragende Arbeitshilfe." Markus Weimer, Church Convention

Helge Stadelmann und Stefan Schweyer präsentieren ein Lehrbuch der Praktischen Theologe, das sich von anderen abhebt: Es ist aus freikirchlicher Perspektive geschrieben und ergänzt so die Lehrbücher für Praktische Theologie aus volkskirchlichem Kontext. Und die Autoren sind überzeugt: jede gute Praxis braucht eine gute Theorie, und in der Gemeinde wird gute Praxis immer auch theologisch reflektierte Praxis sein. Bloße Pragmatik genügt nicht. In das Zentrum ihres Entwurfs haben die Autoren den Gemeindeaufbau gestellt, und sie gehen dabei der Frage nach: Wie können Gemeinden qualitativ und quantitativ wachsen?

"One who is strengthened by God professes himself to be an utter fool by human standards, because he despises the wisdom men strive for."--Thomas Aquinas "Go and do likewise. . . ."--Luke 10:37 Missiologist Michael Frost is looking for the real Jesus--the man who didn't care what people thought, worked on the Sabbath, touched the unclean, ate with sinners, and generally contradicted what was acceptable to the leadership of his day. He's searching for the Jesus who embodies all the characteristics of the ancient tradition of the holy foolish paradigm as described and commended by Paul, the church fathers, and the medieval saints. And he finds him. . . . Saintly fools prefer life out in the open in the secular world, intentionally make themselves conspicuous, and consistently defy rules set by society. Frost directs our minds and hearts to the greater story of Jesus. He reminds us that following the Savior is rarely safe--and that Christ will continue to redraw our blueprint of what's right and what's righteous; and will persist in calling us to take the alternative, dangerous, ridiculous road walked by wise fools down through the centuries of the church. A much-needed and longed-for challenge to emergent, contemporary, and traditional gatherings and churches alike.
