  1. 5 Stars Out Of 5
    Good book on engaging people near you with God's Love.

    Meets Expectations: 5
    First let me start by stating I would give this book 5 stars and would recommend it to others. Here are a few reasons why:

    Marty Troyer has done well at helping the reader redefine and reimagine what it means to join God in His mission of being formed by the Gospel message of Jesus and living this out in the world around us. Troyer uses many personal examples to illustrate how to do this in practical yet tangible ways. The reader is invited to imagine things differently: God, the gospel, the places we live, and our part in Gods restoration process. Troyer does well pointing to the life of Jesus as an example of the things God is passionate about. We often find that the things we value and hold dear are far off course from what God values. This requires a reorientation and re-imagining our lives to be shaped and conformed by Jesus life.

    Troyer does well to give the reader a broader understanding and definition of love and peace (Shalom) and how these words are far more encompassing than what our modern cultural understanding of them are. For instance Troyer states: Shalom is what the world would look like if we were healthy spiritually, relationally, and in our interactions with creation. Troyer also writes about a missional form of worship and how this takes place with an overarching redefining of worship from the pictures our mind usually conjures up upon hearing this word.

    I also enjoyed Troyers understanding of spiritual formation presented in his book. We tend to reduce spiritual formation to primarily a come and learn type of environment that focuses more on education than anything else. Missional Christians must resist the cultural inertia of learning about. Our new faith formation practices will center on learning to. Learning to love, learning to act for justice, learning to see our world as it is and can be. Troyer calls this type of learning environment Faithwalking: Faithwalking is based on the belief that personal transformation happens through the integration of action and reflection, and almost always with others. Through a series of retreats, cohorts, and coaching, Faithwalking uses this same cycle of practice and reflection to form disciples in three core competencies of missional engagement liberation, learning, and living.

    Sometimes when we contemplate how to help others we can become overwhelmed by the enormity of the task. It becomes easy to get discouraged and ignore the mission we feel called to. Troyer does well to reinforce how steps in doing what we can in a situation can have an impact. In essence focusing on what God has called us to do to impact those around us and being faithful in doing so. Troyer also challenges the readers understanding of justice in a positive way to get the reader thinking beyond traditional forms of justice to restorative justice.

    NOTE: I received an advance reader copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for a fair and unbiased review.
