[easyazon-link asin=”B008J4CHDW” locale=”us”]Creating a Missional Culture: Equipping the Church for the Sake of the World[/easyazon-link]
by JR Woodward
“JR Woodward’s remarkable book defies categorization. To ‘create a missional culture’ requires disciplined biblical and theological formation, discerning engagement with contemporary cultures, appreciative interaction with diverse resources, and the courage to experiment and to innovate. Woodward does all that and more in this book. The growing exploration of the theology and practice of the missional church is enriched by this volume. Its authority rests in the author’s tested and validated experience as an equipper ‘of the missional church for the sake of the world.'”  – Darrell Guder, Winters Luce Professor of Missional and Ecumenical Theology, Princeton Theological Seminary, editor and coauthor of The Missional Church: A Vision for the Sending of the Church in North America

As a former college pastor at a Birmingham church and the leader of a local campus ministry, Andrew Byers — author of the new book Faith Without Illussions:  Following Jesus as a Cynic-Saint— has come across his share of cynical Christians.  He admits to having been one himself.  While it seems cool to be one of the disillusioned – those who “know better”– and not one of the delusional – those who follow pop-Christianity – for Byers, the way of cynical Christianity is not really following Jesus.
