The Shaping of Things to Come: Innovation and Mission for the 21st-Century Church by Alan Hirsch and Michael Frost
Alan Hirsch & Michael Frost, The Shaping of Things to Come: Innovation and Mission for the 21st-Century Church, Baker, 2013.
If ever there was a time for an innovative missionary effort in the West, it is now. The great paradox of our age is that while the need for the gospel has seldom been greater, the relevance of the church to the culture at large has seldom been less. With keen insight, thought leaders Alan Hirsch and Michael Frost explore why the church needs to recalibrate itself and present us with a clear understanding of how the church can adapt to face the unique challenges of the twenty-first century. Now thoroughly revised and updated with current case studies, this missional classic still shows us the way ahead.
