We are very excited to be publishing a new book that should come out late 2006. The book will be about Innovations in Missions and is being published by Paternoster/Authentic Press (www.paternoster-publishing.com).
The book is being edited by myself and Rev. Jim Reapsome. We have about 10 authors who have each written chapters for the book. The amazing thing is that these 10 innovations in missions fit together so well. They create a look at what we are calling holistic innovation. It is a mixture of academic thinking and real life doing. These innovations won't just be cool things in a laboratory. They are or have been tried with varying degrees of success.
So many times people don't know what it takes to innovate. The hope is that this book will open people's eyes to new ways of doing missions and also educate people on the process of innovation that they can begin to use.
Innovation is discipline and this book is a wealth of generosity about how different people have disciplined themselves to create new solutions.
We will update you all more when we know the availability dates.
