"[By] John Addison Dally".
Includes bibliographical references.
"We are living with a foot in each of two worlds today. For many North American Christians, 'mission' still connotes sending representatives of Western Christianity to the non-Western world, laden with crayons and vaccines. For others, the notion of becoming 'missional' has completely transformed their sense of the church as an institution and their role in it. For these Christians, 'mission' is no longer about an optional activity of the church but about participating in God's redeeming activity in a world bent on self-destruction. [This book] will try to speak to both these audiences: tracing the sea change and its implications for preachers who have yet to encounter the word 'missional' in their daily lives, and offering concrete suggestions for a reconception of the preaching task for those whose imaginations have already been captured by the possibilities inherent in a missional identity." -- Intro.
This book "is both a work of theology and a how-to-guide for preachers who want to rethink both the form and the content of their preaching in order to move a congregation from maintenance to mission". -- back cover.
Contents: [Series] Editor's Foreword / John D. Witvliet -- Acknowledgements -- Introduction -- Missional: Is That a Word ? -- The Quick Fix Is No Longer an Option -- The Kingdom of God and Healing: The New Testament Model -- Reimagining the Kingdom of God -- Reimagining the Congregation -- Reimagining Scripture -- Crafting and Preaching the Missional Sermon -- Notes.

"This book is written as a resource to help pastors and laity (1) talk about the changes transpiring in congregations and (2) shape a new congregation for the future." "The seven megatrends that I see arising in our congregations are: a shift from mass evangelism to relational evangelism; a shift from tribal education to immigrant education; a shift from surrogate missions to hands-on missions; a shift from reasonable spirituality to mysterious spirituality; a shift from official leadership to gifted leadership; a shift from segmented programming to holographic programming; [and] a shift from secondary planning to primary planning". -- Intro.

"The four studies which together make up this book were delivered as the Duff Missionary Lectures in Edinburgh and Glasgow during the month of November 1958. .... I have tried here to develop further some of the ideas briefly set forth in my book 'The Unfinished Task', in the light both of my own further meditations and of events that have taken place in the missionary and in the political worlds since 1956. These events have been many and various. .... 'Creative Tension' is not intended to be a topical commentary on contemporary events; but I hope it may be found to be related to the movement of the Spirit of God in our times". -- Preface.

"[By] Wesley Frensdorff".
"The material here presented was taken from text and notes of four addresses given by Bishop Frensdorff during 1981-85 and published as chapter one -- 'The Dream' -- of the book, 'Reshaping Ministry', from Jethro Publications ... Reprinted by permission of the publisher". -- p. 2.
"I have ... lifted the dream from the four sources, distilled into one version and edited it for print rather than preaching. In this form it is more of a poem than a sermon. But the flow, the choice of words, the turn of a phrase remains. It is, I'm confident, an accurate rendering of the Frensdorff dream". -- [Intro.], p. 4.

Notes
The author comments of the history of the Epiclesis in general liturgical history and in the Anglican tradition in particular. "The `epiclesis', then, reveals an important `theophany', or manifestation of God to God's people. Through the promises of Christ and the power of the Holy Spirit, the people of God (Christ's Body, the Church) are nourished and revitalized by the spirit of God (with Christ's Body and Blood, the Eucharist)" (p. 6).
Author is His Eminence, the Most Rev. Andrei Brennan, is Primate of the Orthodox Church of Canada (Ukrainian Autocephalous Mission Archeparchy).
