I am have contributed to a book on training for mission – the book is part of the epic regnum series that has been produced as a result of a conference in edinburgh 2010. Amazingly the publishers have decided to make the whole series available as pdf downloads for free – yes free – simply look under each title and click on the download! I don’t know of any other series that has happened to. What seems to happen is when a new book goes up it is made free six months later. They are all quite large books and have a range of themes with a series of chapters in.
The one i have contributed to is called reflecting on and equipping for christian mission and the chapter is a case study in which i tell the story of cms pioneer mission leadership training and reflect on our approach. It’s called a new pathway. You can go here to download the book and look it up in the index or email me and i’ll send you my chapter. It’s a really helpful book with some fabulous chapters. I wish it had been around when i was reflecting on how to set up a new course for pioneering mission although it was fun making it up too! I have waited until now to post about this as i wanted the book to be free before doing so!
Thank you to Stephen Bevans for inviting me to contribute – your kindness and encouragement has been a gift.
