In his many travels as a researcher for Youth With A Mission, Bryan Bishop discovered a startling phenomenon: hidden movements of Muslims, Hindus, and Buddhists who are experiencing and following Jesus outside the boundaries of traditional Western Christianity. And they have plenty to teach Christians in the West who feel spiritually stagnant or disillusioned.
Through colorful firsthand accounts, Bishop unveils fresh expressions of faith that can revitalize our own. Those who have left or are feeling the pull to leave the church, along with those who chafe against Christianity's European-American cultural box, will welcome this expansive view of what it looks like to follow Christ.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I have already given away a dozen copies of this book! It is a challenging read, but also a fun adventure that draws you from one chapter to the next. The firsthand accounts of things happening around the world are compelling, but the things that has really captivated my attention are the principles and ideas which are applicable to my daily life here in the US. More and more I meet people who have a faith in Christ and are attracted to His message, but reject church attendance for dozens of different reasons: unfortunate, but very common. But Jesus is boundless! The book is ultimately about Jesus… how He working in places we didn’t know, in ways we hadn’t even conceived, with creativity that brings incredible freedom. The book is an invitation to break out of the ruts of past cultural expectations and experiences, and to pursue Jesus with new vigor. Read it! You may struggle with certain ideas at first, but will end up loving it. It has become one of my favorites!!
