"A beguiling image for the mission
of the Church in our time. It combines the Samaritan parable's deceptive simplicity with a realism about what the Church is up against in this world."--Mark Trotter, Pastor, First United Methodist, San Diego.
After describing the biblical mandates for the mission of ministry, Dr. Messer calls church leaders to:
-understand the world as God's body
-live as a covenant of global gardeners
-work as bridge builders
-form a company of star-throwers and peacemakers
-embrace a community of fence movers
