What does God's mission look like? Who is supposed to carry it out--and how?
Juan F. Mart nez leads us on an inquiry into God's mission in the world: what it is, what it is not, and who is invited to be part of it. If Jesus is truly God's mission incarnate, we need to look at what Jesus did and how he did it. Mart nez helps readers understand what mission means, why Christians in the past have made missteps, and how we can learn from Christian communities that are spreading the good news of Jesus today. Doing mission in the way of Jesus may look different from what many assume, but it is a call that the church cannot afford to miss. The Jesus Way: Small Books of Radical Faith
