Out And Out has been written in response to the questions that Dave Andrews, the radical Christian community worker, has been asked again and again by Christian community workers all over the world. And the answers that he shares with us in this book have been forged and tested in the fire of his own personal, vocational and professional experience as a grass roots community worker. Out And Out is an attempt to explore what he calls 'Christian Mystic Community Work' that inspires, shapes and sustains the Waiters Union, an inner city community network, that he is a part of, which is 'way out' in terms of its inclusiveness of 'up and outs' and 'down and outs' Out And Out covers the contribution of Initiatives Of Change and the Twelve Step Movement and concludes with a beautiful reflection by Dave's wife, Ange, on the legacy of hospitality Dave and Ange have tried to pass on to their children and their children's children.

About the Author:

Dave Andrews is an Australian Christian anarchist author, speaker, social activist, and community worker who, along with his wife, Ange, and their family have lived and worked in intentional communities with marginalized groups of people in Australia, Afghanistan, Pakistan and India for over forty years. Along with friends, Dave and Ange started Aashiana, Sahara, and Sharan-three Christian community organizations working with slum dwellers, sex workers, and people with HIV/AIDS in India. He is also a part of Waiters Union, an inner-city Christian community network working with Indigenous Australians, refugees and people with disabilities in Australia. Dave is also an Elder for Servants to Asia's Urban Poor, an educator for TEAR Australia, a Christian international aid and development agency, and a lecturer at the University of Queensland and Christian Heritage College.

Review:

''Dave Andrews has been and continues to be a major inspiration for my life and work.''
--Brian McLaren, A New Kind of Christian

''We are now clearly in a post-Christian time, and a more postmodern culture. A cross-cultural missionary practice is now needed. The Waiters Union offers one of the very few effective, replicable, genuine, missional models of (the future) church in Australia.''
Geoff Westlake, Cheers

'''Dave Andrews and the Waiters Union helped me out a whole lot. Dave does the best job of
showing the implications of Jesus' teachings in how they play out in real life. He showed me
what a life could look like if you followed the teachings of the first century Jesus. What Dave
embodied seemed to be a representation of what the idea of followers of Jesus, or a church,
could look like if the church can be loosed from literalism and conservatism and embrace the
radicalism of Jesus.''
--Nick Fiedler, The Hopeful Skeptic --Nick Fiedler, Author, The Hopeful Skeptic
