Church Without Walls: Moving Beyond Traditional Boundaries

Overview


The first-century Christians had to sort out Jesus from Judaism in order to become a people for all nations. Today, we have to sort out Jesus from religious traditions in order to make Him available to our nation.

That’s the challenge this book tackles: Will we be the church without walls, communicating a gospel free of traditional and cultural trappings?

Meet the Author


JIM PETERSEN is an associate to the general director of The Navigators. In 1963 the Petersen's pioneered The Navigator ministry in Brazil. They began with university students and then followed them as they started families and moved into their careers. This, in time, expended the ministry into a movement across Brazil. In 1973 Jim began to recruit and coach missionary teams for other Latin American countries. From 1986 to 2000, he served as a vice president on the International Executive Team of The Navigators. In those years, he coached ministry teams in the Middle East, Europe, Asia, Africa as well as in Latin America. Through living and ministering in many cultures, Jim has acquired a wealth of experience in reaching and discipling people who are normally outside the Christian context. He shares what he has learned in his books Living Proof, Church Without Walls, Lifestyle Discipleship, The Insider and Mor e Than Me. (all Navpress). Jim and his wife, Marge, have raised four children and live in Colorado Springs.
