To Alter Your World: Partnering with God to Rebirth Our Communities by Michael Frost and Christiana Rice
Michael Frost & Christiana Rice, To Alter Your World: Partnering with God to Rebirth Our Communities, IVP, 2017.
In Christ, a new world is being born and the new creation is unfurling all around us. God is directing history toward the future restoration, repair, and renewal of all creation. And our job is to cooperate with God in being a sign and foretaste of that coming world. Renowned missional leaders Michael Frost and Christiana Rice introduce the bold metaphor of a midwife to depict us as God’s birthing attendants as the kingdom comes on earth as it is in heaven. With ground-breaking ideas and practical illustrations from all corners of the globe, To Alter Your World will change the way you see how your church can partner in God’s world-altering mission. Nothing else could be more rewarding than labouring alongside a God who is birthing the new creation and inviting all to join in its benefits and blessings.
