"Missio Dei: In the Crisis of Christianity"

Fred Peatross, an editor with New Wineskins, has just released Missio Dei: in the crisis of christianity, which can be purchased here.

The book is already receiving significant praise.

Alan Hirsch, co-author of The Shaping of Things To Come writes:

"Articulating the contours of the church that will thrive in the 21st century with lucidity and simplicity would be a very difficult assignment, but to enounce it with the clarity that assures every reader an accurate understanding takes a rare talent. Fred Peatross does just that.

Many writers resort to simply rehashing outmoded and outworn paradigms. Fred proves to be a trustworthy guide laying out a clear and practical framework around which to contrast (or reconstruct) an authentically missional church. In doing so he manages to be both fresh and inventive. This work is a welcome contribution to the literature exploring practical approaches to missional church."

The book should be more widely available in traditional online outlets in a few days.

Fred's a friend and I'm happy to see his influence widen with this book!
