How to Do Mission Action Planning (SPCK, 2009) was the first book to appear on the MAP process, at a time when it was beginning to have a significant impact. In this fully revised and expanded edition, the authors offer further critical evaluation and theological reflection, by drawing on the experiences of people who have been using the MAP process in different contexts from their own:Fr Damian Feeney, parish priest and Catholic Missioner of Lichfield dioceseCanon David Banbury, leader of Parish Mission Support, Blackburn dioceseThe Rt Revd Dr Alan Smith, Bishop of St AlbansDr Stephen Hance, Canon Missioner of Southwark dioceseLinda Rayner, the United Reformed Church co-ordinator for Fresh Expressions
Ten years on from their first book, Evangelism: Which way now? which has become a valuable and much recommended resource, Mark Ireland and Mike Booker aim to take people a step further. Making New Disciples offers a practical approach, based on careful theological reflection and years of hands-on experience in local church leadership, theological education and the national church. The book is not so much a Which? guide to the available resources, as a wrestling with the paradoxes of evangelism in a changing world, backed up with plenty of stories and specific examples.
A significant and growing number of churches are using the principles of Mission Action Planning (MAP). This volume argues the case for producing a high-quality plan, describes the practical steps involved, offers real-life examples, and provides evidence of the effectiveness of the process. It is based on research conducted in several dioceses of the Church of England - at diocesan and parish levels. 'The 'MAP' process is well described by Mark Ireland and Mike Chew in this excellent book and I am enormously grateful that they have taken the time and the care to enquire more deeply both into the process and some of the outcomes now in a number of Dioceses.' Lord Hope of Thornes KCVO
'Messages from the Afterlife' shows how spirit communication can be both undeniably accurate and frustratingly ambiguous, and above all demonstrates the value of having an open, receptive mind while maintaining faith in the indestructiblity of the human spirit.
"Mark Ireland is a moving writer . . . [who] emotionally connects with his readers. He speaks not only from the perspective of a father who suffered the ultimate loss, but also as a man who inherited the ability to reconnect with those who've passed on."--Allison DuBois, subject of NBC's "Medium"
Based on extensive research, Evangelism in a Spiritual Age takes a detailed look at the spirituality of people beyond the fringe of the Church and offers insightful responses to how the Church might address the issue of evangelism in the twenty-first century. Topics include: Big questions people are asking How people view Christians and the Church Listening - its vital importance Achievable ideas for the local church General trends in spirituality and creative evangelism The community as a key to contemporary evangelism This timely and practical book enables all those interested in evangelism to understand the spirituality of people who don't go to Church and to communicate the gospel more effectively. The Explorations series aims to provide a much-needed forum for church leaders, teachers, writers and theologians to stimulate debate, challenge the thinking and practice of the Church at large, and to raise awareness of issues crucial to its future.
