Product Description

Ever wonder why people fall asleep in church?

It happens. We've all seen it. We shuffle into rows of seats that grow more comfortable with every new fundraising campaign. We slouch down and settle in for an hour or so, as singers and storytellers and preachers and teachers take their turns filling our ears. And almost without fail, at least one of us nods off while listening to the greatest story ever told.

The church was not meant to be like this. The church was meant to be on its feet, in the world, making all things new. The church was meant to be sent.

Kim Hammond and Darren Cronshaw want to help us - all of us - rediscover our sentness.

Dive into Sentness and explore the six postures of a church that's keeping pace with God's work in the world. Rediscover the gospel that first quickened your pulse and got you up on your feet, ready to go wherever Jesus called you. Get Sentness and prepare to get sent.

Endorsements

Kim Hammond and Darren Cronshaw come into the kingdom through engaging it--not theologizing it. They run up against what it really means to live missionally. Sentness is clear, simple, practical and powerful in addressing what it means for every believer to engage missionally right where they are. I highly recommend it.
-Bob Roberts,
senior pastor of NorthWood Church

Sentness is full of stories and real-life examples of people who live on mission. It encourages us to live our lives out loud while in fellowship with others and on mission together.
-Neil Cole,
church planter

Could it be that while much of the church is waiting for Jesus to come, Jesus is waiting for us to go? This book joins a chorus of voices calling for the church to join God on mission in our world with lots of practical ideas as to how we can do so more effectively. Highly recommended reading.
-Mark Conner,
CityLife Church, Australia

In Sentness Kim Hammond and Darren Cronshaw draw the reader to embrace their vision of God's mission and to realize that each and every Christian is 'sent,' and that their cities, neighborhoods and homes are their mission field. Their stories will challenge and inspire the reader's imagination to think outside the ministry box and share the gospel across cultural and social lines.
-Ed Stetzer,
president of Lifeway Research

In Sentness Kim Hammond and Darren Cronshaw find ways to help us move from the dominant, never satisfied, consumer Christianity of our age to an exciting adventure of living, joining and engaging Jesus out in our neighborhoods and wider world with others. This is a practical, thoughtful and accessible book for those of us who suspect that a better Christian faith, one immersed in this world, is possible.
-Ash and Anji Barker,
founders of Urban Neighbours of Hope and International Society for Urban Mission

The word missional is in danger of becoming a vacuous trend in twenty-first-century evangelicalism, claiming to be new wine but packaged and consumed in the same old programmatic wineskins. This is why we need Sentness. Hammond and Cronshaw pull back the curtain on what "missional" really means and help us conceive the new wineskins (postures and practices, not programs) that are needed to hold this missional wine that looks new but is actually very old, and very powerful. What is needed is not more tips, techniques, buzz words and events--what is needed are new ways of being human together that show and tell the power of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Hammond and Cronshaw--drawing from their deep well of experience--describe our way forward as a sent people into the missional frontier of North America.
-Mike Breen,
CEO, 3DM

Sentness weaves solid theology with thoughtful praxis to not only remind us that all Christ-followers are sent but also to show us how to live a sent life! Hammond and Cronshaw are two leaders who not only teach it but personally live it out, and that is reflected in this great book. If the church will embrace the six postures in Sentness the mission of Jesus will be accomplished!
-Dave Ferguson,
lead pastor, Community Christian Church, Naperville, Illinois

Sentness is a fast-paced and inspiring invitation. It will challenge you to place your home, neighborhood and job under the direction of Jesus and cause you to rethink concepts of church, ministry and mission. It is time to respond to the invitation to be sent--this book is an essential guide.
-Geoff Maddock,
urban missionary
