Called to Witness:
Doing Missional Theology
Called to Witness is a collection of essays, papers, and lectures in which Darrell Guder forcefully develops the theological movement that launched with the 1998 publication of Missional Church: A Vision for the Sending of the Church in North America. Called to Witness is Guder’s most substantial publication since The Continuing Conversion of the Church (2000), and it possess the richness of more than a decade’s worth of reflection and development. In his foreword to the book, John Franke (now General Coordinator of the Gospel and Our Culture Network and General Editor of the recently restarted Gospel and Our Culture Series) suggests – I think rightly – that the “volume will have a catalytic effect on the development of missional theology in the years ahead” ( x).
