Overview

If the unchurched in the United States ever formed their own country, it would be the world’s eleventh most populous nation. Reformission is a call to reform a flawed view of missions—as something we only do in foreign lands—to focus on the urgent needs in our own neighborhoods, filled with diverse Americans who desperately need the Gospel of Jesus and life in his Church. It calls for a movement of missionaries who seek the lost across the street, as well as across the globe.


 


Many evangelical churches today are either hostile to the unbelieving world in which they live, or so friendly with the surrounding culture that they have lost the unique claims of the gospel that alone have the power to change people.  This basic primer on the interface between gospel and culture by #1 New York Times bestselling author and pastor Mark Driscoll will help you to carefully navigate between the twin pitfalls of syncretism (being so culturally irrelevant that you lose your message) and sectarianism (being so culturally irrelevant that you lose your mission).


 


If you’re more convinced today than ever that this crazy, sin-sick world needs a Savior, Reformission will show you how to love the Lord through the unchanging gospel, and love your neighbor in our ever-changing culture.

    I have found this book very insightful. I highly recommend to other Christians, especially those living outside of the Bible belt.

    As real as it gets!!!

    Mark has a sharp humor and incredably deep insight into what God and life are really about. His writing is honest and challenges the reader with the truth of the Bible. He's not one of those pastors who is scared of life and all it brings with it, but rather he says we must embrace life and the freedom given to us by Jesus Christ. He feels that to deny the joys of life is to deny the gifts of God, as he humorously puts it, 'Drinking beer is not a sin, but drinking light beer is.' To him, loving God is about being the person he made you, not the person other so-called-Christians tell you to be. He talks about his real life experiences and talks with people who are serving God in various professions, from a successful tattoo artist to the founder of Hales Ales Brewery, all the while focusing on the Bible and the true gift of freedom that came from Jesus Christ's suffering. He encourages us not to obey the Bible and the rules that churches have created out of fear or obligation, but to obey God and the message the Bible carries out of love and true appreciation for the freedom we have been granted. This book has a clarity and understanding that allows anyone who is wanting truth about life an God to examine themselves and see truth with more accuracy than before. It is easy to read, yet packed with depth and wit. Mark encourages you to discover for yourself what you believe by giving you the facts of the Bible and the experiences and insights of others who have gone before. This book will truly answer questions with it's hard-hitting theology and can change your life.

    Why NOT to read this book

    I will give you 3 reasons to NOT read this book:
    1. If you like your comfortable Christian cul de sac (which is always located somewhere near Irrelevant Avenue and Self Righteous Street), do not read this book.
    2. If you don't want to be challenged to repent of your apathy, do not read this book.
    3. If you are unable to laugh at yourself and the silly things Christians like to convince themselves of, do not read this book.

    For all else who dare, dig in.
