The next two books on my reading list are Reggie McNeal’s Missional Renaissance and Brennan Manning’s Furious Longing of God. Any of you read either of these two books? Thanks to the Ooze for the copy of Manning’s book. I will post a review here and at their site in coming weeks. I was just skimming through McNeal’s book and it looks excellent. It is not all about theory. He devotes many pages to some very creative and practical ways of putting missional theology to work in a congregation or among individual Christians. This book is basically a “how to manual” for churches and church leadership to become more missional focused.
