Review: Ordinary Mum, Extraordinary Mission

I’ve always thought someone should write a book or blog entitled ‘Missional church – by those who have to clear up afterwards.’ This book is not quite this. It is more ‘Missional church – by those with children in tow’.

It’s a series of reflections on being missional while caring for young children. It’s full of practical wisdom and inspiring stories.

I did find it light on theology. There are some proof texts, but little serious engagement with Scripture. Indeed stories of direct words from God out-number passages expounding Scripture.

Nevertheless I’m sure it would be an encouragement to many missional mums.
