From the Back Cover:

Praise for Missional Map-Making

"Roxburgh continues to move the missional conversation forward! His Missional Map-Making creatively builds on his previous publications by offering critical perspective on how to navigate the overwhelming complexity of today's world. This important book provides insightful historical perspective toward clarifying the contours of our present landscape, while also being deeply instructive for helping reflective and courageous Christians develop skills for creating new maps toward participating more faithfully in God's mission."

Craig Van Gelder, Ph.D., professor of congregational mission, Luther Seminary

"What if a leader, contra modern expectations, is not to provide dependable predictions, vision, answers, strategic plans, and operational control? Roxburgh claims these modern ways, based on outdated maps, blind us to reality, stifle churches, and result in misplaced efforts, deepening disappointment, and fatigue. Instead, leaders are to be cartographers in a new terrain, shaping churches in which map-makers multiply as God is encountered in biblical texts and local contexts. Roxburgh challenges us with cultural studies and theology so that we gain needed capacities for shaping generative environments in which the Gospel's truth and power forms a people in and for God's mission. Pastors, judicatory leaders, and students need to engage this book."

Rev. Mark Lau Branson, Ed.D., Homer Goddard Associate Professor of Ministry of the Laity, Fuller Theological Seminary

"The issue of leadership is critical in a time of rapid cultural change. Alan Roxburgh helps us with a vital image in the critical quest to recast a leadership approach for our times. The skill of map-making rather than just reading the maps we have goes to the heart of the matter. This is a hugely creative and needed book to help us remake the New Christian West."

Martin Robinson, national director, Together in Mission, and author, Faith of the Unbeliever and Invading Secular Space

From the Inside Flap:

Missional Map-Making

When church leaders decide to make the fundamental missional shift from focusing on the church itself to asking what God is up to in the neighborhood where their people live, it can be challenging for both leaders and congregants. In this important book, missional leadership expert Alan Roxburgh includes the information and tools leaders need to develop their own maps and chart new paths toward stronger, more vibrant, and more missional congregations. Using the engaging metaphor of map-making, Missional Map-Making explains the perspective and skills needed to lead congregations and denominations over the often unfamiliar terrain of becoming missional.

Building on the work in the groundbreaking book The Missional Leader and on his extensive consulting practice, Alan Roxburgh shows step by step how to implement the strategic missional church model. This proven model also defines the characteristics that describe an effective missional leader and shows how pastors and other clergy can develop the skills they need to best lead their congregation and reach out to the larger community.

Missional Map-Making gives leaders the help they need to nurture their church environments to become truly God centered so that his spirit will guide the mission and the work of their congregations.
