"Generous Community is a game changer." The Most Rev. Michael Curry, 27th Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church                                                                                                                                                                   GENEROUS COMMUNITY is a book that invites the reader to wade deeply into the transformative work of being church in a new missionary age. This book is designed for the person in the pew. Not unlike the reformers who hoped to inspire a change within the church of their time, this book is for every one who wishes to take on the work of mission through evangelism and service for the sake of God's reconciling work and for the hope of community transformation. GENEROUS COMMUNITY (Church Publishing) is the partner book to CHURCH (VTS Press) for the building of cadres of leaders to help you transform your mission in the new mission context in which we find ourselves.

From the Author:

Are you a member of a mainline denomination? Are you a member of the Episcopal Church and want to work to transform your congregation? This is your book. My hope is that this text will offer leaven to feed the Church's imagination. It is an offering to God and the Church. It is an offering to all those who have lost hope in their church over the last two decades. Most of all, it is an offering for those who deeply desire to be part of what God is doing in the world around us. It is you, the imaginative lover of Jesus, passionate missionary, and worldly pilgrim, whom I hope to engage in a discussion about the future. The questions after each chapter will help you think about how to turn God's dream for the future church into your experience of church.
Gather a small group of friends together and read GENEROUS COMMUNITY (from Church Publishing). Together with (CHURCH from VTS press) you can create a cadre of leaders that can help transform your congregation, lead you to plant new missional communities, help you transform the community and context in which you find yourself. You can lead the change that you want to see.

From the Back Cover:

The future Church is depending on us to speak up and out. We are called to be bold. The future Church is hoping the present Church will engage the chaos around us. 

Daring greatly is the call. In the face of certain suffering, confusion, and even death--there is life. After all, daring greatly is the man on the cross. Daring greatly is resurrection. Daring greatly is the attitude of the future Church.

God is praying that laborers will go into the fields, for the harvest is great and laborers are few. Our call is to step forward as leaders committed to a future Church engaged in the mission of God. We are the ones to see the artifacts of the future church around us today and to harness them for the missionary work of service and evangelism. We in the Episcopal Church must raise a loud shout and respond to God's prayer, affirming, "Our Church is alive! And, here I am, Lord, send me."
