I have just started reading three new books. Actually 2 are very old and one is recent.
The two oldies are by Roland Allen, a British Anglican guy who was a missonary in the early to mid 20th C. His books were first published c. 1920.
One is called The Spontaneous Expansion of the Church and the other is Missionary Methods: St Paul’s or Ours. Both have been deemed classics in the missional arena so I figured it was about time I got on the ball and read them. They do seem to have some useful stuff to say.
The other is the newly released (relatively) emergingchurch.intro. It seems like a very readable popular approach to emerging ideas.
I am nearly finished Primal Leadership, a book I have enjoyed but haven’t been rivetted by. There are some excellent leadership concepts in it, but its just getting tiring reading the same stuff over…
