Product Description

Over the course of several decades, missiologist George Hunsberger has written numerous essays on crucial themes for the church's recovery of its missional identity and practice. The Story That Chooses Us brings these essays together for the first time.

The book as a whole presents a composite sense of the missional identity and faithful witness to which the church is called in contemporary Western society. Hunsberger engages with well-known missiologist Lesslie Newbigin throughout his work as he carefully discerns biblical and theological roots for a contemporary vision of missional theology. The recurring themes in Hunsberger's essays provide both theological mooring and practical guidance for churches following Christ on the missional path.

Editorial Reviews

Arun W. Jones
-- Candler School of Theology
“George Hunsberger has done a great favor to the field of missiology and, more importantly, to the church in North America by gathering these seminal essays, written over decades of deep thought and engaged missional activity. His clarion call, developed with remarkable insight and admirable nuance, to renew the character and work of the church urgently needs to be heard and reckoned with today.”

Laceye Warner
-- Duke Divinity School
“Each essay in this book speaks directly to real challenges confronting the church in our time. The writing is framed theologically and saturated with the missional vision of a deeply respected scholar. Yet the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. . . . This book is a precious gift.”

Barry Harvey
-- Baylor University
“Few are more qualified than George Hunsberger to describe the tapestry that is the complex relation between church, gospel, and culture on the North American scene. From the lucid exposition of Lesslie Newbigin’s foundational missiology to perceptive reflections on the missional work being done by local congregations, this book would ideally serve as an introductory text in missional ecclesiology.”

Paul Louis Metzger
-- Multnomah Biblical Seminary
“As one of North America’s most astute mission theologians of the church, Hunsberger masterfully recounts the gospel’s compelling and gracious call on our lives. Anyone seeking to bear witness to the good news of Jesus Christ in our postmodern and post-Christendom world will find this choice selection of inestimable value.”

Scott W. Sunquist
-- Fuller Theological Seminary
“Collected in this single volume are some of the most important essays that have fed the missional church conversation the past two decades. George Hunsberger, as much as anyone else, has been the patriarch of this important movement.”
