Product Description

Christian leaders were once social entrepreneurs who built hospitals to heal the body and universities to shape the mind. Once again we are hungry for new ways of living and doing things that can chart better paths forward. We are hungry for an approach to innovation that can address what doesn't seem to be working and also for a model rooted in more organic metaphors of growth, renewal, and vitality.

In Christian Social Innovation: Renewing Wesleyan Witness, Reverend Dr. L. Gregory Jones offers Wesleyan Christians and other evangelicals who seek a renewed vision for Christ-centered social innovation an insightful and fresh set of Christian practices, deeply rooted in the Wesleyan tradition. Christian social innovation involves bringing the rich resources of the Christian faith to bear on the mindsets, practices, and traits of social innovation. By focusing on blessing and hope rather than fear, Jones demonstrates that Christian social innovation recognizes that it will take more than human ingenuity to solve intractable problems: it will wake a comprehensive vision of God and the nature and purpose of the world and of human life within it.
