""Place" and "land" are central theological themes, but ones that have been largely lost on the modern church. Our tendency to divide the sacred and secular the spiritual and the earthly
make it difficult for people to embrace a call to mission in this world. The biblical narratives affirm a good creation, loved by God and charged with meaning. In NO HOME LIKE PLACE, Len Hjalmarson
unpacks what it means to participate in God's ongoing creation and redemption in this world. Making the case for a kingdom rooted in place, Hjalmarson addresses various questions:
Are there "sacred" places?
How does place impact spiritual formation?
In what sense, if any, is virtual space a place?
What does mission and church have to do with neighborhood?
This is a book designed to help you develop a holistic framework for thinking about your local context as it relates to covenant and mission.
God's movement in history is to transform creation into new creation; will you join?"
