Spirituality 2013


Welcome to the 2013 Faith & Spirituality Catalog We are delighted to announce our list of forthcoming titles that once again reflects the Jossey-Bass mission of offering thoughtful and engaging books that grow out of the lively intersection of spirituality and religion with history, culture, personal/spiritual growth, and leadership. We are especially pleased to offer Immortal Diamond: The Search for Our True Self, a new book from Father Richard Rohr. In addition, we are bringing out the Falling Upward Companion Journal, designed as an aid for deepening the spiritual journey of the many readers of Father Rohr’s best-selling Falling Upward: A Spirituality for the Two Halves of Life. In the general spirituality category, we are pleased to publish the thoroughly revised and updated version of Lynn Robinson’s Divine Intuition: Your Inner Guide to Purpose, Peace, and Prosperity. Robert Emmons, eminent researcher and writer, provides intriguing insight and a proven approach to increasing gratitude—and thus health and happiness—in his new book, Gratitude Works! A 21-Day Program for Creating Emotional Prosperity. The new thought-leader books that have grown out of our long-time partnership with Leadership Network are especially notable this year. Neil Cole offers his thoughts on transfusing churches with “organic church” spirit, Sherry Surratt and Jenni Catron provide practical, nononsense advice for women leaders, Efrem Smith sheds light on the post-black and post-white church, Jim Tomberlin and Warren Bird give sage advice on church mergers, and David Fitch and Geoff Holsclaw challenge churches with their Prodigal Christianity: 10 Signposts into the Missional Frontier. We thank you for your interest in our books and authors. With all best regards,

Falling Upward

FALLING UPWARD A Spirituality for the Two Halves of Life

RICHARD ROHR Author of The Naked Now

978-0-470-90775-7 • Hardcover $19.95 US • $23.95 CAN • 240 pp. • 5 x 7 SPIRITUALIT Y

A Spirituality for the Two Halves of Life Richard Rohr Father Richard Rohr helps us comprehend the paradoxical mysteries of spiritual growth throughout life. In Falling Upward, Father Richard Rohr—the founder of the Center for Action and Contemplation—offers a new paradigm for understanding one of the most profound of life’s mysteries: how our failings can be the foundation for our ongoing spiritual growth. Drawing on the wisdom from time-honored myths, heroic poems, great thinkers, and sacred religious texts, Fr. Rohr explores the two halves of life to show that those who have fallen, failed, or “gone down” are the only ones who understand “up.” We grow spiritually more by doing it wrong than by doing it right.

“This ‘second half of life’ need not wait till our middle years. It emerges whenever we are ready and able to expand beyond the structures and strictures of our chosen path.” —Joanna Macy, author, World as Lover, World as Self

“Rohr writes about spirituality in broad terms, but is deeply grounded in the writings and thinkers of his Catholic religious tradition. His discussion of … the necessity of suffering, the opportunities provided by mistakes …is fresh because imaginative and vigorous. . . . This small, provocative book will make a particularly good gift ...” —Publishers Weekly

GRATITUDE

WORKS!

A 21-Day Program for Creating Emotional Prosperity

978-1-118-13129-9 • Hardcover $19.95 US • $23.95 CAN • £13.99 UK • $22.95 AUS 224 pp. • 5 x 7 S P I R I T U A L I T Y/ P E R S O N A L G R O W T H

A practical resource based in science and spirituality that outlines a step-by-step program for reaping the many benefits of gratitude as a daily practice. Over the past decades, positive psychology has steered scientific attention toward human strengths and virtues—those inner traits and psychological processes that most cultures, philosophies, and religions have commended as qualities that help us live well. In his first book, THANKS!, Robert Emmons explored the science of emotions and of gratitude drawn from psychology, neuroscience, and philosophy. But it didn't tell us how to cultivate gratitude as a way of life that can make us happier and healthier. Gratitude Works offers a exploration of the best practices to foster gratitude. Emmons reveals how dramatic advances in science have turned from does gratitude work to how do we get more of it? Readers who follow the 21-day program for cultivating gratitude will find their lives filled with more joy, more hope, and more resilience in facing life's inevitable challenges.

“Robert Emmons is the world’s leading expert on the psychology of gratitude.” —Jonathan Haidt, author, The Happiness Hypothesis

“I am convinced Robert Emmons is right: increasing the national state of gratitude would change the world.” —Jim Clifton, chairman and CEO, The Gallup Organization

Robert A. Emmons, Ph.D., is professor of psychology at the University of California, Davis . He is the author of more than 100 original publications including the bestselling book THANKS! He has served on the Board of Advisors of the John Templeton Foundation and is the past president of the American Psychological Association’s Division 36, The Psychology of Religion .

“Gratitude’s benefits should be enough to convince even the most cynical secularist that this emotion is essential for achieving happiness.” —Spirituality & Practice Magazine

“A serious exploration of a current arena of psychological research, by one of the leaders in that emerging field.” —Steve Helig, The San Francisco Chronicle

"This book is about the journey of exploration, the process of involving ourselves in the maintenance of a democracy in which all who are willing to open their hearts can flourish.” —The Daily Kos

In his newest book, Parker J. Palmer builds on his own extensive experience as an inner life explorer and social change activist to examine the personal and social infrastructure of American politics. What he did for educators in The Courage to Teach he does here for citizens by looking at the dynamics of our inner lives for clues to reclaiming our civic well-being. In Healing the Heart of Democracy, he points the way to a politics rooted in the commonwealth of compassion and creativity still found among “We the People.” “Democracy,” writes Palmer, “is a non-stop experiment in the strengths and weaknesses of our political institutions, local communities, and the human heart—and its outcome can never be taken for granted. The experiment is endless, unless we blow up the lab, and the explosives to do the job are found within us. But so also is the heart’s alchemy that can turn suffering into compassion, conflict into community, and tension into energy for creativity amid democracy’s demands.” Healing the Heart of Democracy names the “habits of the heart” we need to revitalize our politics and shows how they can be formed in the everyday venues of our lives. Palmer proposes practical and hopeful methods to hold the tensions of our differences in a manner that can help us restore a government “of the people, by the people, for the people.”

“His insights are heart-deep: America gains by living with tension and differences; we can help reclaim public life by actions as simple as walking down the street instead of driving. Hope’s hardly cheap, but history is made up of what Palmer calls ‘a million invisible acts of courage and the incremental gains that came with them.’” —Publishers Weekly Starred Review

John Philip Newell is a poet, scholar, writer, and teacher . The former warden of Iona Abbey in the Western Isles of Scotland, he is now companion theologian for the American Spirituality Center of Casa del Sol at Ghost Ranch in the high desert of New Mexico .

John Philip Newell

A New Harmony highlights the need to overcome divisions and find common ground and to reclaim the best of ancient Christian spirituality and a more holistic, natural way of thinking about faith. It communicates across the boundaries of religion and race that have separated us and honors our distinct inheritances by serving what is deeper still— the oneness of our origins and the oneness of earth’s destiny. Beloved Celtic Christianity writer J. Philip Newell explores the ancient harmony that is deep in the matter of the universe, the essential interconnectedness of all things. Everything, whether the expanding light of distant galaxies or humanity’s inner light of mind and consciousness, carries within itself the life of the universe’s shared beginning. With keen insight and sensitivity, he explains the brokenness of our harmony, as individuals and families and as nations and species. Only by knowing and naming the extent and depth of our disharmony can we find the way to hope for healing.

“In these pages Celtic consciousness and scholarship once again awaken the heart and mind to what is real in religion, the everyday beauty and sacredness of things. Simply but not simplistically written, the author moves from dreams and everyday encounters to teachings from creation-centered mystics and today’s scientific cosmology, offering the reader a spiritual ride of depth and exhilaration. He provides a radical challenge to the boredom that institutional religion so often elicits. With a book like this, religious history looks less bleak and spirituality much closer to home.” —Matthew Fox, author of Original Blessing

forgiveness Reflections on Atonement

When Religion Becomes Lethal The Explosive Mix Of Politics and Religion In Judaism, Christianity, and Islam Charles Kimball A reliable, insightful, and useful exploration of the critical issues in the volatile mix of religion and politics in the great monotheisms. When Religion Becomes Lethal answers key questions and provides a reliable framework for understanding why religious belief—especially in the Abrahamic faiths of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam—so often leads to violence and what constructive steps can be taken to chart a more hopeful future. Kimball has a profound understanding of the oftentroubled history between the Jewish, Christian, and Muslim descendents of Abraham.

“In a world torn by religious extremism, this book provides a pragmatic, hopeful, and much-needed tool for those who seek an honest dialogue of change.” —Jim Wallis, founder and CEO, Sojourners; and author of Rediscovering Values

Charles Kimball, Th .D ., is presidential professor and director of religious studies at the University of Oklahoma in Norman, Oklahoma . An ordained Baptist minister, he is a frequent lecturer in universities and church-related settings as well as an expert analyst on issues related to the Middle East, Islam, JewishChristian-Muslim relations, and the intersection of religion and politics .

Beyond Forgiveness Reflections On Atonement Phil Cousineau, Editor Thoughtful reflections on the peace of mind that can come when we take the next steps after forgiveness to turn mistakes into opportunities for atonement and healing. This rich and powerful book includes 15 thoughtful contributions by high-profile thinkers and activists. In this book atonement is put forward as a process that we must all learn to practice—from individuals to nations—if we are to heal our wounds and move forward.

Healing the Past, Making Amends, and Restoring Balance in Our Lives and World

“If we harbor thoughts of violence or hatred, or seek revenge or retribution, we are contributing to the wounding of the world; if we transform those thoughts into forgiveness and compassion, and then move beyond them to actually make amends or restitution, we are contributing to the healing of the world.” —Deepak Chopra

Robin Meyers is a nationally known United Church of Christ minister and peace activist . His congregation describes itself as unapologetically Christian and unapologetically liberal (mayflowerucc .org) . He writes for Christian Centuiry, is an award-winning commentator on NPR, and is a professor of rhetoric in the philosophy department of Oklahoma City Unversity . More information can be found at www .robinmeyers .com .

The Underground Church Reclaiming the Subversive Ways of Jesus Robin Meyers A radical book that proposes a radical idea: we need to recapture the spirit of the early church with its emphasis on what Christians do rather than what they believe. Written by the prominent minister, teacher, speaker, and writer, Robin Meyers, The Underground Church posits that the best way to recapture the spirit of The Way is to recognize that Jesus-following was—and must be again—subversive in the best sense of the word. Instead of endless theological and political arguments, the church must be more concerned with being loving than being right. Meyers offers a potent antidote for organized-religion-as-usual—suggesting that until being a follower of Jesus is dangerous again we will continue to bless the status quo instead of transforming it. We must return to our culturally and socially subversive roots and live by the two most powerful words in the gospel “Fear not.” No matter how the church may organize itself or worship, the defining characteristic of the Beloved Community should be its love of justice and its countercultural compassion for all people.

“DANGER: the contents of this book are explosive and could turn the world upside down. About time.” —Bill Moyers

“When was the last time you thought of going to church as dangerous? Once we challenged the status quo; now we mostly defend it. The Underground Church tells the story of how we forget where we came from and why we must recover our subversive roots. Read this book if you dare. Become part of the movement if you are daring.” —Archbishop Desmond Tutu

“Read this book. Written by a wordsmith, it is a passionate and challenging call to churches to be liberated from the cultural captivity of convention and into the ‘underground church.’” — Marcus Borg, canon theologian, Trinity Episcopal Cathedral, and author, Speaking Christian

Just Lead! A No Whining, No Complaining, No Nonsense Practical Guide for Women Leaders in the Church Sherry Surratt and Jenni Catron, with a foreword by Mark Batterson Empirical research and compelling stories combine in this much-needed resource to help women successfully navigate the transitions needed to lead well in church and ministry settings. The opportunities for women in leadership both in and outside the church are greater than they have even been before. However, the leadership gap in the development of women continues to widen. What is holding them back? Why are senior leaders still reluctant to fully engage women, especially young women? Just Lead! offers a practical leadership guide for women who want to develop their skills to lead themselves and others with the confidence, character, and authenticity of a Godly woman. The book examines what often holds women back—from inner battles of insecurity, from fear of comparison to others, to the practical realities of gender dynamics. The book challenges women to take a look in the mirror and reflect on what’s keeping them from becoming a trusted leader.

"If I could pick two leaders to represent the next generation of women leaders it would be Jenni Catron and Sherry Surratt. Simply put, if you're a female and in leadership you need to read this book. Just Lead is a faithful and fresh challenge that is provocative and yet massively optimistic." — Pete Wilson, Lead Pastor Cross Point Church, author of Plan B and Empty Promises

"Jenni Catron and Sherry Surratt choose transparency as their way of connecting to the hearts of women called to lead in ministry today. In Just Lead, they reveal the script of their leadership journeys and lift you beyond the boundaries of whatever you may think leadership is or is not. It's both challenging and refreshing to be served-up this brand of candid no-nonsense wisdom. If you have the courage to soak in some serious straight talk and a willingness to let what you learn reshape your leadership style, then Just Lead is the 'must read' for you." —Tami Heim, President and CEO of Christian Leadership Alliance

Prodigal Christianity 10 Signposts into the Missional Frontier David E . Fitch and Geoff Holsclaw A compelling and creative vision for North American Christians that puts forth ten critical signposts for the journey into a very different kind of future for the church. Prodigal Christianity asks the questions that can help us rediscover the missional frontier. Is there a path leading to a Christianity capable of bearing witness where little or no Christian consensus exists? Where is the Christianity that journeys into the difficult places where Christian language is not yet spoken, where the witness to God’s Kingdom in Christ has not yet reached the edges of humanity, the places where brute force often has the last word? Where is the renewal of what the church has always been but sometimes forgets to be: a people sent in mission? Where are these signposts that can direct us into the missional frontier? Prodigal Christianity offers down-to-earth, accessible, and yet provocative ways of understanding God’s mission of redemption. It speaks into the discontent of the post-evangelical twenty-somethingplus generations with what has become of the Emergent Church and its alternatives, the Neo-Reformed movement and the pragmatic missional church networks. Playing off these two streams, appreciatively yet constructively, Prodigal Christianity offers the building blocks for a missional theology that moves Christians forward into a way of life that lives the gospel in our culture for these times. Written in compelling prose, Prodigal Christianity hopes to fill the gap for the average Christian left discontented with the current options “after evangelicalism.”

"When it comes to pastoral theology, the only voices I care to hear are those who are pastoring, and pastoring well. David Fitch and Geoff Holsclaw are such voices. Their book reflects a rare combination of faithful neighborhood witness, embodied church life, and theological rigor. The result is a compelling missional theology for today’s missional Christian." — Scot McKnight, Professor of New Testament Northern Seminary and author of numerous books including King Jesus Gospel.

Efrem Smith is an internationally recognized African-American leader and highly charismatic speaker . He is the former pastor of the Sanctuary Covenant Church and board chair of the Sanctuary Community Development Corporation in Minneapolis, Minnesota . He is now superintendent of the Pacific Southwest Conference of the Evangelical Covenant Church (ECC) denomination, located in Concord, California, and the author of Raising Young Heroes and Hip Hop Church.

The Post-Black and Post-White Church Becoming the Beloved Community in a Multi-Ethnic World Efrem Smith, with a foreword by Curtiss de Young Why is Sunday morning still the most segregated time in America? The key to creating and growing a more unified and holistic church is the multi-ethnic and Christ-centered community that offers a strong connection between theology and practical ministry models and that offers a new vision of what what it means to be the church of the Bible today. Most books on racial reconciliation or multi-ethnic ministry center on the theological foundations, history, or social problem aspects of the topic. The Post-Black and Post-White Church offers a practical, hands-on blueprint for developing and sustaining a multi-ethnic and Christ-centered community. Written by Efrem Smith, an innovative and passionate African-American leader of the Covenant Evangelical Church and founding pastor of Sanctuary Covenant Church in Minneapolis, Minnesota, this groundbreaking book shares his skills, experience, and wisdom for congregations who want to grow into a multi-ethnic, missional identity. The Post-Black and Post-White Church connects theology and practical ministry models for wrestling with what it means to be church in an ever-increasingly multi-ethnic world that is polarized by class, politics, and race. The book embraces Jesus as one who was both Jewish and multi-ethnic and focuses on a theology of reconciled, multi-ethnic, and missional leadership.

"Any leader who is serious about being the church God has envisioned must read this book. Smith shows us that too often Evangelicals, both White and Black, have used 'the race card' to keep from coming together as the church God has intended. Smith not only builds a solid biblical mandate for multi-ethnic churches but gives solid and proven strategies on how to go about developing a truly missional church that is post- Black, post-White, post-racial, and pre-Kingdom." — Rodney L. Cooper, Kenneth and Jean Hansen Professor of Discipleship and Leadership, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, Charlotte Campus

Building a Healthy Multi-Ethnic Church Mandates, Commitments, and Practices of Diverse Congregations Mark DeYmaz

Mike Bonem is an experienced church consultant and speaker . He has served on the pastoral staff of a congregation for over ten years, and previously spent nearly twenty years in the marketplace as a business executive and consultant . He has an MBA from Harvard Business School and is the coauthor of Leading from the Second Chair and Leading Congregational Change. www .mikebonem .com .

Is it possible for church leaders to use biblical and secular leadership concepts in a way that keeps Christ—not the marketplace—at the center of their mission? Drawing on both the Bible and business wisdom, In Pursuit of Great AND Godly Leadership explores the critical leadership decisions that shape an organization’s future and its effectiveness. These decisions are illustrated in compelling interviews with more than forty leaders of churches, universities, denominational bodies, and international ministries. Mike Bonem leverages his background as an MBA-trained manager and an experienced church leader to bridge the gap between the analytical and structured world of business and the faith-driven approach that is essential for healthy churches. Covering everything from planning, finance, personnel management, and measurement to deeper, foundational concerns related to self-leadership, team dynamics, culture, and organizational change, the book helps readers discern how to adapt business-related principles in their organizations. While Bonem presents an array of corporate concepts, his thinking is rooted in the belief that leadership is shaped by Scripture and should never violate its teachings. Throughout In Pursuit of Great AND Godly Leadership, Mike Bonem reveals how senior pastors, executive pastors, key laypeople, and leaders of other Christian entities can discern the value of business practices and allow time and space for God to speak to their hearts. In doing so, he points to the “AND” that every spiritual organization should strive to achieve.

“Mike Bonem’s experience in the business world gives him a unique perspective on church leadership. You will be challenged, changed, and astonished by the wisdom in In Pursuit of Great AND Godly Leadership.” —Craig Groeschel, senior pastor, LifeChurch.tv; author, WEIRD: Because Normal isn’t Working

Church Transfusion Changing Your Church Organically—From the Inside Out Neil Cole and Phil Helfer with foreword by Dave Ferguson The newest book on the burgeoning organic church movement challenges churches to transfuse themselves with the life-giving qualities and energy of Jesus. Many struggling churches are striving to turn things around. They look for a new program, better staff, different worship style, or updated strategy to fix their church, but find that these only end in more frustration and increased cost. The problem with many churches in America today is not a lack of programs but a faulty DNA within. The concept of a missional, “organic” church, a more intimate way of being church, has gained prominence and influence across a broad audience of Christian leaders and clergy.

Coauthor Phil Helfer cofounded Church Multiplication Associates in 1991 and is pastor of Los Altos Grace Church with 300 members and a thriving house church component . He is an expert on incorporating organic church principles into conventional churches .

In Church Transfusion, Neil Cole (the foremost expert on organic church) teams up with his business partner, Phil Helfer, who has been part of the growth and innovation of Church Multiplication Associates. Together Cole and Helfer revisit the organic church themes from Cole’s previous books, Church 3.0 and Organic Church. They show conventional church leaders how to use organic principles to transfuse their churches with an entirely new energy and vision and a more missional approach to what they are and what they do. Since established churches can’t start from scratch the way new ones can, nor can they shift completely the way Church 3.0 proposed, Church Transfusion not only applies the organic principles for them but also gives tangible examples of how they can change from the inside out. Church Transfusion is Neil Cole’s most powerful followup to his bestselling Organic Church.

“In a time when the church is under attack from forces inside and out, Neil masterfully combines absolute biblical truisms with bold, doable practices that any church can make a reality. Church Transfusion is both foundational and far-edge thinking.” —Hugh Halter, author, The Tangible Kingdom and Sacrilege

“This looks like a book about how to change the church, but don’t be fooled. It’s actually about how to change the world! If churches would stick out their arm and submit to this kind of transfusion they would learn again to love Jesus, to do life together, and to demonstrate God’s holy righteousness and love to a broken world. This book is life-giving!” —Michael Frost, author, Road to Missional and The Shaping of Things to Come

COMMUNITIES The Rise of the Post-Congregational

C HURCH

Reggie McNeal Author of The Present Future and Missional Renaissance FOREWORD BY

Reggie McNeal The third book in Reggie McNeal’s trilogy that defines the missional movement. In Missional Communities, McNeal examines a natural outgrowth of the move toward a missional orientation: the deconstruction of congregations into smaller, organic Christian communities. At the very heart of the book are stories about some of these new missional communities, each one illustrating a fresh and different chapter in God’s work in and through the church. The settings range from Europe to North America, from suburb to city to college campus, from neighborhood to workplace. McNeal presents these stories in the hopes of exciting the imaginations of those attracted to this burgeoning movement—whether they want to get started in their own distinctive way of doing missional community or want to be more missional in their traditional practices.

Better Together Making Church Mergers Work Jim Tomberlin and Warren Bird, with a foreword by Craig Groeschel

Church merger consultant Jim Tomberlin and award-winning writer Warren Bird make the case that mergers today work best not with two struggling churches but with a vital, momentumfilled lead church partnering with one or more joining churches. Based on solid research and practical experience, the authors provide a hands-on guide so that lead churches and joining churches can each understand the issues, select an appropriate model, and develop strategies that will create a positive and healthy merger. No matter what your motivation for merging your church with another—to begin a new church lifecycle, cross racial lines, reach more people for Christ, multiply your church’s impact, or better serve your local community—Better Together will give you the tools you need to create a thriving new entity.

“Better Together is certain to become the standard reference for churches that see mergers as a strategic tool for kingdom impact. Tomberlin and Bird give us useful language, a helpful guide to the opportunities and challenges of church mergers, and the tools to navigate a successful merger.” —Andy Stanley, senior pastor, North Point Ministries, Alpharetta, Georgia

The Other 80 Percent Turning Your Church’s Spectators into Active Participants Scott Thumma and Warren Bird

Explores what motivates less-connected, inactive church members to move toward a vital life of discipleship and faith in community. The Other 80 Percent is a practical guide for church leaders written by respected researcher Scott Thumma and noted author Warren Bird. The authors draw upon new research across a broad range of Protestant churches of all sizes. They explore societal norms influencing involvement and identify distinctive qualities of churches that shape patterns of better volunteer participation. They also examine the sometimes faulty and limiting perspectives leaders have about ways to increase involvement. The book proposes practical steps to develop listening and learning teams to assist clergy in uncovering membership patterns, cultural norms, and leadership blind spots common to Evangelical and mainline congregations alike. The Other 80 Percent also includes a wealth of creative ideas that can expand what it means for people to engage more fully with their church.

“If you’re discontent with 20 percent of your flock participating in spiritual development and 80 percent being spectators on the sideline, you need to read this book over and over.” —Bill Easum, author, consultant, coach; president of 21st Century Strategies

Jim Tomberlin, Th.M., is an ordained minister who has served in a variety of ministries, including pioneering the multisite strategy at Willow Creek Community Church in Chicago . He is the founder of MultiSite Solutions, devoted to multisite and merger consultation . Scott Thumma, Ph.D ., is professor of sociology of religion at Hartford Seminary and researcher at Hartford Institute for Religion Research . Warren Bird, Ph.D., is director of research and intellectual capital development for Leadership Network. Warren has coauthored 22 books, among them Culture Shift and Viral Churches, both from Jossey-Bass .

Alan Hirsch is the founding director of Forge Mission Training Network . Currently he co-leads Future Travelers, an innovative learning program helping megachurches become missional movements . Alan is considered to be a thought-leader and key mission strategist for churches across the Western world . Tim Catchim is a grassroots church planter experimenting with innovative forms of mission . While working as a church planting assistant and evangelist with the Montgomery (Alabama) Inner City Ministry, he started a mentor program for at-risk youth that gained state recognition . He is currently planting a network of missional communities in Clarksville, Tennessee .

Apostolic Imagination and Practice for the 21st Century Church Alan Hirsch and Tim Catchim, with a foreword by Darrell L . Guder An original work of theological re-imagination and re-construction that draws from biblical studies, theology, organizational theory, leadership studies, and key social sciences. The Permanent Revolution elaborates on the apostolic role rooted in the five-fold ministry from Ephesians 4 (apostles, prophets, evangelists, shepherds, and teachers) and its significance for the missional movement. Throughout the book, the authors propose a revolutionary missional ecclesiology that is shaped by the New Testament account of apostolic imagination, ministry, and strategy. The aim is to reclaim the ministry by which the church is to remain centered on its calling to be the instrument of God’s mission, and that everything it is and does and ought to do relate to and demonstrate that calling. To (re)capture the practice of apostolicity, the authors explore how the apostolic ministry facilitates ongoing renewal in the life of the church and focus on leadership in relation to missional innovation and entrepreneurship. They examine the nature of organization as reframed through the lens of apostolic ministry and explore how apostolic leadership provides new and missionally creative ways forward.

“At a time when being ‘apostolic’ has great appeal, this book is a biblical reality check. Alan Hirsch, along with Tim Catchim, brings his trademark skill of integrating theological, organizational, and sociological insights, as well as his good-natured love of the gospel and God’s people. This is sure to become a standard text in the field of church leadership studies.” —Michael Frost, author, The Road to Missional and The Shaping of Things to Come

Church Unique How Missional Leaders Cast Vision, Capture Culture, and Create Movement Will Mancini, with foreword by Max Lucado Church Unique offers church leaders a way to transform their leadership and vision with missional effectiveness. Church Unique is written by church consultant Will Mancini, an expert on a new kind of visioning process to help churches develop a stunningly unique model of ministry that leads to redemptive movement. He guides churches away from an internal focus to emphasize participation in their community and surrounding culture. In this important book, Mancini offers an approach for rethinking what it means to lead with clarity as a visionary. Mancini explains that each church has a culture that reflects its particular values, thoughts, attitudes, and actions, and shows how church leaders can unlock their church’s individual DNA and unleash their congregation’s one-of-akind potential.

Will Mancini, a former pastor, is the founder of Auxano, a national consulting group that works with traditional and emerging churches and ministries of all types around the country . Their mission is to navigate leaders through growth challenges with vision clarity (auxano .com) .

Mancini explores the pitfalls churches often fall into in their attempt to grow, such as adding more programs, using outdated forms of strategic planning, or adopting the latest conference technique. He explores a new model for vision casting and church growth that has been tested with leaders in all kinds of congregations, including mainline, evangelical, small, and large. The practices and ideas outlined in Church Unique will help leaders develop missional teams, articulate unique strategies, unpack the baggage of institutionalism, and live fully into their vision. Whether leading a megachurch or church plant, a multisite or mainline, a ministry or parachurch, Church Unique will provide inspiration as a practical guide for leading into the future. There is a better way.

“There is a screaming need today for leaders who will rise above quick fixes and generic approaches. Now, Will Mancini has brought an indispensable book to the church leader’s toolbox, providing a thoughtful and creative process that will galvanize your team to unleash God’s vision for your church.” — Howard Hendricks, chairman, Center for Christian Leadership; distinguished professor, Dallas Theological Seminary

“Will Mancini’s vision for vision is contagious. Church Unique doesn’t hold back—challenging existing paradigms, yes, but also providing new maps for churches to engage in God’s mission.” — Ed Stetzer, director, LifeWay Research; coauthor, Comeback Churches and Compelled by Love

Your Church in Rhythm

Will Mancini

The Forgotten Dimensions of Seasons and Cycles Bruce B . Miller, with foreword by Will Mancini

Bruce Miller

Typically church leaders try to have every ministry moving full speed ahead at every point in time and inevitably feel guilty if any one aspect (worship, ministries, or outreach) is neglected. In place of the elusive search for balance, Miller proposes rhythm: flowing in seasons and cycles. Churches, like people, need to give priority to different purposes and ministries at different times.

PRAISE FOR CRACKING YOUR CHURCH’S CULTURE CODE

CHURCH MINISTRY / LEADERSHIP

“Cracking Your Church’s Culture Code provides a methodical introduction to understanding the idiosyncratic dynamics of your church and their impact on the overall vision of your ministry. This book is comprehensible and constructive as it reveals the seven important keys to creating a cohesive tone within your organization.”

—BISHOP T. D. JAKES, The Potter’s House of Dallas

“Dr. Chand said, ‘Culture—not vision or strategy—is the most powerful factor in any organization.’ I couldn’t agree more. Dr. Chand’s latest book, Cracking Your Church’s Culture Code, is a must-read for every church leader. If you want your ministry to move forward, buy this book for everyone on your leadership team!”

—CRAIG GROESCHEL, senior pastor, LifeChurch.tv, and author, The Christian Atheist “Sam Chand keeps firing golden bullets of practical assistance to church leaders. He’s a blessing—and here’s another offering of workable wisdom that is sure to bless many.”

—JACK W. HAYFORD , chancellor, The King’s University

The Author

Dr. Samuel Chand speaks regularly at leadership conferences, churches, corporations, ministerial conferences, seminars and other leadership development opportunities. He was named in the list of the Top 30 Global Leadership Gurus by www.leadershipgurus.net. Dr. Chand serves on the board of EQUIP (Dr. John Maxwell’s ministry), working with five million leaders worldwide, and assists Bishop Eddie L. Long’s leadership development team.

“The number one reason a vision is aborted is because the visionary and the vision carrier aren’t aware that a toxic culture exists—and that it can bring death and destruction to a church. This is a must-read for the life of your congregation and will create a healthy environment that breathes success and significance. I commend Dr. Samuel Chand for his wealth of experience. He has identified the keys that will reveal where you are and how to fix it.”

CRACKING YOUR CHURCH’S CULTURE CODE

Once a church’s culture is clearly identified, leaders can put in place a strategy for applying the seven keys of CULTURE (Control, Understanding, Leadership, Trust, Unafraid, Responsive, and Execution) that will make their church’s culture one that stimulates people to be and do their very best and ultimately reach their highest goals.

Seven Keys to Unleashing Vision and Inspiration Samuel R. Chand “Culture—not vision or strategy—is the most powerful factor in any organization. It determines the receptivity of staff and volunteers to new ideas, unleashes or dampens creativity, builds or erodes enthusiasm, and creates a sense of pride or deep discouragement about working or being involved there. Ultimately, the culture of a church shapes individual morale, teamwork, effectiveness, and outcomes.” —From Chapter One

Prominent church and leadership consultant Sam Chand describes the five easily identifiable categories of church Oculture (Inspiring-Accepting-Stagnant-Discouraging-Toxic) and includes diagnostic methods that church leaders can use to identify the particular strengths and needs of their church’s culture. To help in this process there is also a separate online assessment tool (www.freecultursurvey. com).

Vision and strategy usually focus on products, services, and outcomes, but culture is about the people—a church’s most valuable asset. Cracking Your Church’s Culture Code offers a practical resource for discovering the deficits in an existing church’s culture and includes the steps needed to assess, correct, and change culture from lackluster to vibrant and inspirational so that it that truly meets the needs of the congregation.

Baby Boomers and Beyond explores the opportunities and challenges that the older adult population presents for the Christian community. Author Amy Hanson dares church leaders to let go of stereotypes about aging and embrace a new paradigm, that older adults are for the most part active, healthy, and capable of making significant contributions for the Kingdom of God. Hanson offers a realistic view of the boomers and reveals what matters most to this age group: staying young, juggling multiple relationships, and redefining retirement. By tapping into their needs, pastors can engage this burgeoning group and unleash the power of the boomer generation to enhance and strengthen the mission of the church.

“Amy Hanson does a brilliant job of reminding us that the most powerful and underutilized source of Kingdom impact is the fifty-plus generation. I have seen firsthand how the mission of Jesus offers them more fulfillment than retirement, golf, or the next sight-seeing trip ever could.” —Dave Ferguson, lead pastor, COMMUNITY / Movement Leader, NewThing

Amy Hanson is a speaker, teacher, writer and consultant who is passionate about helping older adults discover a life of Christ-centered meaning and purpose . She unites her doctorate in gerontology with her ministry experience to educate and equip leaders, students, health care professionals and older adults on the unique opportunities of an aging America .

Based on what he has learned from Christ the King, which has been cited as one of America’s fastest growing and most innovative churches, this groundbreaking book shows what it takes for a church to embrace the best practices, forms, and organizing principles of the mega- and micro-church models to become a hybrid and capitalize on the unique strengths of both.

RE VISED 10 TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION

Sharon Daloz Parks The “twenty-something” years of emerging adulthood are increasingly recognized as a distinctive but puzzling era in the human life span. In this tenth anniversary revised edition of her 2001 classic, Sharon Daloz Parks, a pioneering voice in young adult development theory, builds on the foundation she established over two decades ago in The Critical Years, in which she recognized this significant stage in the human life span and underscored the role of mentors in the lives of young adults. Focusing on critical features of human development—transformations in thinking, feeling, and networks of belonging—Parks describes the potential and vulnerability of emerging adults and shows how mentors and mentoring environments can provide access to big-enough questions and inspire dreams worthy of engagement with a challenging and complex world.

“The things at stake in this tenth anniversary edition are even more profound and urgent than they were the first time around. This is not a little story about young people. It is a big story about humanity and the persistent quest for meaning and purpose. . . . the key is mentorship, and the payoff should be big—for all of us.” — Richard A. Settersten Jr., coauthor, Not Quite Adults: Why 20-Somethings Are Choosing a Slower Path to Adulthood, and Why It's Good for Everyone

Sharon Daloz Parks is principal of Leadership for the New Common, a senior fellow at the Whidbey Institute, and has held senior research positions at Harvard Divinity School, Harvard Business School, the Kennedy School of Government, and the Weston School of Theology.

Who they are, Where they are, and How they got there

“Douglas Jacobsen has written a remarkably thoughtful, insightful, lively, and near-comprehensive account of the sprawling, vivid, internally plural, and wildly complex phenomenon of world Christianity. For students of politics, culture, development, and conflict – for anyone interested in the evolution and prospects of the hundreds of Christian-influenced or -inflected societies around the world – The World’s Christians is indispensable.” R. Scott Appleby, University of Notre Dame

Christians

“At a time when readers are looking for a good basic book on Christianity as a world religion, Douglas Jacobsen offers something even better: a global survey of who and where the Christians are, and a brief history as well. Students and casual readers alike will come away with their questions answered, and those who want to learn more will find many good suggestions about what to read next. This is a valuable book, well worth getting – and keeping.” Joel Carpenter, Calvin College

Christianity is the world’s largest religion, with one third of the world’s population defining themselves as Christians, and with a truly global presence. In a clear and lively style, Jacobsen describes how Christianity has developed and spread around the world and how Christians in many different cultures live their faith today. The book offers a balanced and engaging account of global Christianity, past and present, with captivating accounts of the world’s four major Christian traditions: Orthodox, Catholic, Protestant, and Pentecostal. The geographical territory covered by the book is uniquely comprehensive, including Africa, Asia, and Latin America, as well as Europe, North America, and the Pacific. The book contains fascinating demographic insights about global Christianity.

Fr. Richard Rohr is a Franciscan priest of the New Mexico Province. He founded the Center for Action and Contemplation in Albuquerque, New Mexico, in 1986, where he presently serves as founding director. Richard is the author of more than twenty books, an internationally known speaker, and a regular contributing writer for Sojourners and Tikkun magazines and the CAC’s quarterly journal, Radical Grace. He is the author of Falling Upward and Falling Upward: A Companion Journal.

Author “This book is the ripe fruit of a life courageouslyof andThanks! honestly lived. Such profound wisdom conveyed with such elegant simplicity!” —Cynthia Bourgeault, author, The Wisdom Way of Knowing, The Meaning of Mary Magdalene, and The Wisdom Jesus “The power of Immortal Diamond is impossible to exaggerate. With the cutting skills of a surgeon and the heart of a Franciscan, Richard exposes the misperceptions and counterfeits that have shaped our faith. He then promises and delivers a ‘staggering change of perspective’ along with a taste of the intimacy of all love, both human and divine. Every word is a rare gift from a true elder and a worthy guide.”

“For a growing number of us, reading Richard Rohr is like sitting around the tribal fire, listening to the village elder give words to that which we’ve always known to be true; we just didn’t know how to say it. Profound, intelligent, wise, and passionate, this book continues Richard’s great work in showing us what vibrant, Jesus-centered faith looks like ...”
