The Church Times gave a wonderfully positive review of the Pioneer Gift last week which was hugely encouraging to those of us who have contributed to it describing it as a spiritually potent and tough minded approach to mission and going at a breathtaking pace. Here’s a couple of quotes…
There is a deep wisdom throughout the book in seeking to hold together inherited patterns of church practice with innovation.
Grief for what seems to be lost walks alongside slow, patient experiment in being church rooted in honest relationships and in seeking liberation for the poorest.
Accessible and vital chapters for study by all kinds of leadership teams and groups.
The review ends wondering how pioneers can give attention not to be so far ahead that others are left behind but to give attention to fostering pioneer churches.
