Everyday Church: Mission By Being Good Neighbours, my latest book co-written with Steve Timmis, is published today. It’s a kind of follow on from Total Church. The premise is that we live in a post-Christian and post-Christendom culture in which we can no longer assume people will ‘come to church’. Instead we need to do church and mission in the context of ordinary life. The book involves a missional reflection on 1 Peter, looking at how Peter equips his readers to live on the margins and do mission in the face of hostility. But the heart of the book is a number of practical ideas for doing evangelism, discipleship and pastoral care in everyday life. For those of you familiar with my book You Can Change, Everyday Church includes chapters on using ‘the 4 Gs’ from chapter 5 of You Can Change in both everyday pastoral care and evangelism.
Here’s a short ‘trailer’:
Everyday Church is published in the UK by IVP and will be published in the US by Crossway and Re:Lit.
