Item description for Witness: The Reign of God and Missional Churches Today by Ron Lavin & Richard H. Bliese...

Overview
In this book, Ron Lavin explores in great depth exactly what witnessing is as well as what it is not. Whether the witness comes from an unnamed high school math teacher or a person one is hoping to marry, a pastor or a priest, it is always the same thing--it is simply the planting of a seed. The author reminds us that we are not necessarily responsible for the way people react to our witnessing or for the end result. That part is God's work. We, like the apostles, are only called to speak about what we have seen and heard. We are called to Witness. This book is designed to be used in many different settings, from individual reading to Sunday School classes to church membership training. Based largely on the book of Acts, Witness leads members of a missional church through: The priority of witnessing, The difficulty of witnessing, and The results of witnessing. From establishing the need for the missional church, we are led through learning about prayer, repentance, hospitality, koinonia, hope and encouragement, and ultimately to exactly what it means to Witness both inside and outside the confines of the missional church today.

Publishers Description
"Witness is a book that acts like a compass within these changing times. For Ron Lavin, individual Christians and congregations need to focus like a laser beam on their witness to Jesus Christ -- and his passion for witnessing comes out on every page. Lavin speaks a clear word in confusing times for many Christians about the power of the church's witness as the heartbeat of the church's life in the world today. Using a broad range of scripture texts, great personal anecdotes, and important theological resources from the emerging mission literature in North America, Lavin weaves together a fascinating tapestry for understanding and doing witness as the missional church points to the reign of God. I welcome any book that both encourages and instructs me about how to become a better confessing Christian. If that is your desire, this book is for you."

Ron Lavin maintains that today's Christian believers face the same critical challenge as did the first-century apostles -- the call to witness to people in a corrupt culture by declaring and sharing the good news of Jesus Christ. Using the book of Acts as a model, "Witness" takes readers on an in-depth exploration of exactly what it means to be a missional church. Lavin examines the vital importance of witnessing and discusses how we can become vessels for God's work through prayer, repentance, hospitality, koinonia, hope, and encouragement. The call to witness can be difficult (and sometimes even dangerous) -- but planting the seeds of faith often leads to amazing results. "Witness" is an excellent group study resource that will stimulate discussion, group interaction, and Christian outreach.
Ron Lavin is the award-winning author of 25 books, including "Turning Griping Into Gratitude," "Way To Grow ," and the popular "Another Look" series. The former Pastor-Director of Evangelical Outreach for the Lutheran Church in America, Lavin also served as the pastor of five thriving congregations that grew substantially under his leadership. He is a popular speaker and church consultant on evangelism and small groups.
