God has an epic plan for the flourishing of all people and places. Want to join in? Partnering with God will help you find your place in that quest as we join in building God's kingdom on earth as it is in heaven. Mission is no spectator sport, and God invites our participation in the millennia old story of the missio Dei.

In these pages, they offer a missiological framework and practice in the West today from a Salvation Army perspective. You will be challenged in these pages to think and live missionally. We are called to join a profound partnership with God to bring about the world as it was intended to be. Are you in?

Written by two practitioner-scholars within the movement, this will become a standard text for Salvation Army mission and ministry training. It is also inspirational and accessible reading for others eager to learn what God is doing all around the world in different streams of the church."" --Darren Cronshaw, Professor of Missional Leadership and Head of Research, Australian College of Ministries ""Lynette Edge and Gregory Morgan have given us a foundation and framework for mission in the twenty-first century.
