Item description for Breaking the Missional Code: Your Church Can Become a Missionary in Your Community by Ed Stetzer & David Putman...

The authors provide expert insight on church culture and church vision casting, along with case studies of successful modern missional churches.

Publishers Description

Across North America, many pastors are excited to see churches growing as they achieve their mission to connect the message of the gospel with the community at large. Still others are equally frustrated, following the exact same model for outreach but with lesser results. Indeed, just because a "missional breakthrough" occurs in one place doesn't mean it will happen the same way elsewhere.

One size does not fit all, but there are cultural codes that must be broken for all churches to grow and remain effective in their specific mission context. "Breaking the Missional Code "provides expert insight on church culture and church vision casting, plus case studies of successful missional churches impacting their communities.

"We have to recognize there are cultural barriers (in addition to spiritual ones) that blind people from understanding the gospel," the authors write. "Our task is to find the right way to break through those cultural barriers without removing the spiritual and theological ones."

Reviews - What do customers think about Breaking The Missional Code?

Excellent Book  Mar 16, 2007
another "must have" for church planters, churches wanting to reach more people or churches thinking of starting a new service or new venue. Deals with processes not programs.
Right on target  Mar 8, 2007
I find this book very well thought out and right on target for engaging our culture with the truth of the ages. This is having an impact on how I see and act in the context of where I live and work.
Insightful and Practical  Feb 3, 2007
When Ed writes something - I always read it. His research is thorough and his reasoning exceptional. Having also known David a few years, and also realizing both of them are practitioners makes the book worthwile. Many people are talking about and defining missional - David and Ed give practical examples of it. It's one of the first books to do that and will go a long way toward educating and showing people
Seeing the Church as it really is in the world  Nov 5, 2006
Stetzer does a great job here of making the case for a contextualized expression of the Church, that sticks to an ancient, orthodox theology. I would recommend that every pastor read this book, as well as one of his other books "Planting Missional Churches"
Add this book to your list  Nov 3, 2006
This is definitely one of the books you need in your arsenical of Missional knowledge. Combine the process described in this book with that of a few other good Missional books and individualize them to fit your situation.
