A call to "mission" can sometimes play upon guilty feelings about overwhelming needs and intimidating challenges. Instead, Ben and Bob invite us into a conversation on calling that helps us see that we participate in the mission of God everyday as we bear the image of His Son among our family, neighbors, coworkers, and communities near and far. They offer an idea book full of creative ways to pursue God's calling in our lives to communicate the Gospel of Jesus Christ, in word and deed, in the power of the Spirit! I urge you to give an ear to their conversation because in it you will hear voices echoing their Savior.

If you find that "missional talk" can be a bit vague, then this is the book for you. It's an accessible guide to missional thinking. But even better, it will help put it into practice. It will show you what everyday mission can actually look like. Not every one of their 101 ideas will apply in your situation, but many of them will.
TIM CHESTER, director, The Porterbrook Network, and author, A Meal With Jesus
Ben and Bob do a phenomenal job creating a practical guide for missional living with a mix of story, theology, and simple, effective ideas to engage culture and do good. The world will be a better place as we begin to practice these ideas in our daily life rhythms.
CHRIS MARLOW, founder and CEO, Help One Now
I was always glad to support church missions but it took me many years to realize that I, too, had a mission. This very practical book helped me connect the dots in my understanding of that mission and offered me a way to step forward in faith. A Field Guide for Everyday Mission is written for all of us who wonder how to talk about and live out our faith in a natural, winsome, and God-honoring way.
