Among the voices in the contemporary missional church movement, Darrell Guder is the grand master of the missional theology' undergirding the conversation. . . . This volume gathers up the essays by which he has prodded, provoked, nudged, and stirred the theological academy toward rooting itself in the fundamental, course-altering recognition of the mission of God and the missional nature of the church. A must-read for all who care about enriching the missional identity and practice of the church.

Darrell Guder's Called to Witness displays the qualities that have distinguished his writings over the past two decades. He consistently addresses themes essential to the renewal of the post-Christendom church and does so with clarity, conviction, and first-rate scholarship. His keen understanding of the disabling Christendom legacy that confronts the church in the West is reflected in the salient themes he addresses. Guder combines honest appraisal with confidence that the body of Christ can be renewed as it embraces God's mission.
