"A beguiling image for the mission of the Church in our time. It combines the Samaritan parable's deceptive simplicity with a realism about what the Church is up against in this world."--Mark Trotter, Pastor, First United Methodist, San Diego. After describing the biblical mandates for the mission of ministry, Dr. Messer calls church leaders to: -understand the world as God's body -live as a covenant of global gardeners -work as bridge builders -form a company of star-throwers and peacemakers -embrace a community of fence movers
Donald E. Messer is president of Iliff School of Theology, Denver, Colorado.
