Product Description

The Paideia series approaches each text in its final, canonical form, proceeding by sense units (pericope's) rather than word-by-word or verse-by-verse. Thus the commentary follows the original train of thought as indicated by the author and not necessarily modern artificial distinctions. On account this approach, one is able to grasp not only the exegetical-historical information of the passage, but also will be able to see thought in its coherent and theological expression.

Each sense unit is explored in three sections: (1) introductory matters, (2) tracing the train of thought, and (3) key hermeneutical and theological questions. The commentaries shed fresh light on the text while avoiding idiosyncratic readings and attend to theological meaning without presuming a specific theological stance in the reader.

Finally, this series is enormously helpful and practical through its usage of small visual presentations of historical, exegetical, and theological information. User friendly, and made for those who are at the intermediate level in study of the Bible. Aimed squarely at university and seminary students, this series is eminently useful for professors and preachers. It will also be of interest to theological libraries.

About the Paideia series:
Paideia Commentaries explore how New Testament texts form Christian readers by:
  • Attending to the ancient narrative and rhetorical strategies the text employs
  • Showing how the text shapes theological convictions and moral habits
  • Commenting on the final, canonical form of each New Testament book
  • Focusing on the cultural, literary, and theological settings of the text
  • Making judicious use of maps, photos, and sidebars in a reader-friendly format

Publisher's Description

When Jesus commissioned his followers, he was not just inaugurating the historical church, he was founding a missionary movement.Originally released by Missional Press and now revised and expanded to include a multi-session discussion guide, Steve Addison's Movements That Change the World draws from biblical, historical and contemporary case studies to isolate the essential elements of a dynamic missionary movement. The church fulfills its mission today to the extent that it honors these essential elements, modelled perfectly in Jesus' missionary enterprise:
  • white-hot faith
  • commitment to the cause
  • contagious relationships
  • rapid mobilization
  • adaptive methods
Throughout the ages Jesus' followers have been called to continue his movement in the power of the Holy Spirit. Like many such movements, it changed the world. Unlike most movements, which have their historical moment and then fade away, Christianity is actively, continually changing the world for the better.

Editorial Reviews

"In this book Steve Addison demonstrates the desire of God from the biblical era until today. He casts a compelling future vision by tracing God's discernible lessons demonstrated in movements. Steve taps into the heart hunger of the growing number of us that want to see God do something great. Your heart will be stirred while you read Movements That Change the World. If you are like me, you will be prompted to stop and pray, 'Lord, do it again, for the sake of our communities and nations--for every man, woman and child!'"
"Adaptive, innovative and consuming. Those words characterize the movements Steve Addison describes and prescribes in his book. They also depict the book--pick it up and it won't let go of you. I couldn't put it down till it finished rearranging my mind. This is a keeper!"
"This will be a valuable contribution to our growing understanding of church-planting movements and their history, scope and nature. . . . I will be recommending this to everyone I know."
"An important book for our times--well researched, well written, and well thought out. Steve identifies the essential qualities that have defined movements of the Spirit throughout the ages. The stories he tells--biblical, historical, contemporary and personal--give us hope for fresh movements of God in our day."
"Steve has been tantalizing me with tales of this book for years. He has talked to me about the content on numerous occasions. The chapters are distilled from years of experience and thought, and the final product has not disappointed. Practitioners and thinkers with a passion for mission will want to read and reread this book."
"There are very few who have truly studied, dissected and understood church multiplication movements at the core. My friend Steve Addison has done his homework. I have anticipated this work for some time and am pleased to report it is better than I ever expected. Steve has put in the years of research and synthesizes his vast amounts of experience, wisdom and research into an easy-to-read book."
"I love this book! Every so often a book comes along that fuels the flame that was started in my heart years ago when I was a young and on-fire world changer. I love reading this type of book. I'm still a fanatical, fiercely focused, imbalanced, apostolic type guy. I'm older now, but more fervent than ever. If you're looking for an intelligent and passionate book to stir you to dream big dreams of how a movement can begin through your life and that will give you practical tools to help implement those dreams, then read Movements That Change the World!"
