Mission-shaped Spirituality: The Transforming Power of Mission
If your shelves are overloaded with books on how to do mission, create some space to engage with this book. No to-do lists. No win-win strategies. Instead this discerning book reflects on the inner resources and attitude of mind required to engage in mission in a post-modern, pluralist society.
Combining real-life case studies with vital lessons from her own personal journey, Susan Hope explores what happens to us on the inside when we embark on mission. This gently provocative book will help us to listen to the Holy Spirit and the cultures in which we find ourselves.
This book encourages the reader to discover a spirituality that envigorates and revives enthusiasm and personal vision for mission.
