Get ReJesus, the new book of Alan Hirsch (now a Missional Outreach Member) & Michael Frost


Alan Hirsch and Michael Frost, authors of The Shaping of Things to Come, have a new book out called ReJEsus: A Wild Messiah for a Missional Church. Here is an excerpt from amazon.com's editorial review:

"ReJesus asks the following questions:
* What ongoing role does Jesus the Messiah play in shaping the ethos and self understanding of the movement that originated in him?
* How is the Christian religion informed and shaped by the Jesus that we meet in the Gospels?
* How do we assess the continuity required between the life and example of Jesus and the subsequent religion called Christianity?
* In how many ways do we domesticate the radical Revolutionary in order to sustain our religion and religiosity?
* How can a rediscovery of Jesus renew our discipleship, the Christian community, and the ongoing mission of the church?"

There have been few books that I have been anticipating as much as this one. I met Alan in a missional church class that I had at Fuller. In this class, we went through a pre-publication copy of The Forgotten Ways. Alan has had a profound effect upon my thinking, and is a wonderful guy. He and his wife Deb really live out their faith. Alan also has a background in Churches of Christ in Australia, which is rather akin to the Christian church here in the US.

Alan just joined our site! Awesome. I have Alan's book on order, and I hope that you will order a copy too. Also, Alan's blog, The Forgotten Ways, is my favorite missional blog. Check it out!

Have you read any of Alan's works? What affect did they have on you?
