Your heart has been aching for something more, and this is it. Join His mission and change the world.

Author Bio

Britt Merrick is the founding pastor of Reality, a family of churches with locations in Santa Barbara, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Stockton, Boston, and London, England. He is the author of Big God and is the pastor for Preaching and Vision at Reality Santa Barbara. Britt lives and surfs in the area with his wife, Kate, and their two children, Isaiah and Daisy.

Publisher's Weekly

Amid a slew of titles encouraging Christians to become more “missional”—intentionally pursuing God’s mission in everyday life—veteran “surfer-pastor” Merrick (Big God) urges his readers to adopt Missio Christi. Missio Christi, a term coined at Merrick’s multi-location Reality Church in California, is the essence of “living life at Godspeed.” It is living the way Jesus Christ did, reaching out and changing the world through ministry to the marginalized poor and sufferers. To spur his readers to go and do the same, the author exhorts, encourages, and equips with the characteristic no-nonsense discourse of a surfer swapping stories on the beach. Pulling no punches, Merrick indicts the American Christian church for its judgmental past and encourages American Christians to reclaim their sense of “sent-ness” as God’s missionaries within their own community. The book is best digested in part two, with its practical applications, called a “playbook for mission based on the historical life of Jesus.” Merrick utilizes personal stories, everyday analogies, and meaningful metaphors to bring his points home. Lacking theological depth, his populist, surfer-style approach will certainly prove inspirational for everyday Christians. (June) 2012 Reed Business Information
