Goheen has immersed himself in the thought and writings of the missiologist Lesslie Newbgin for several decades. So what we have here is a distillation and exegesis of Newbgin's ideas on ecclesiology, mission, missions and culture -- and their interrelationships.

If you read only one book on Newbigin make sure it is this one.

Great for those currently unhappy with the way Christians sometimes misrepresent Christ and helpful for the church to understand how to encourage members to bring the Kingdom of Heaven in the here and now.
