Product Description

How might a church infused with missional theology change the way it approaches Christian practices?

In Practicing Witness: A Missional Vision of Christian practices Benjamin Conner interacts both with the missional theology of George Hunsberger and Darrell Guder and with the theology of Christian practices laid out by Craig Dykstra and Dorothy Bass as he argues that bringing these two disciplines into dialogue with one another can empower the church's witness, enhance its congregational discipleship, and enliven its theological education.

Framing his discussion with real-world narratives and applications inspired by his ministry to adolescents with special needs, Conner shows how a practical missional mind-set can redefine and reinvigorate the spirit and purpose of a congregation.

Endorsements

Practicing Witness is a significant new contribution to contemporary practical theology and Christian ministry. The conversation between the 'missional theology' and the 'Christian practices' approaches to Christian faith, life, church, and mission that Ben Conner both advocates and launches in this book is very promising and long overdue. I am honored and grateful to have my own theological work taken so seriously here. I learned a lot from Conner's full, rich, and accurate rendering of it and from his promptings to make its implicit missional and ecclesial dimensions more explicit. This is an important and excellent book.

Combine equal parts of ecclesial practices and missional theology. Add Conner and stir. Bake for a few hours. Voila! Bread of renewal for the churches!
