As Christians, we can often be starved of imagination, wary of paradox, and devoid of mystery. Reframation is a passionate manifesto, calling followers of Jesus to reframe and reenchant our worldview, enlarging our perception of God and gospel. It's an invitation to stretch our minds, expand our hearts, and awaken ourselves and those around us to the grand story of God. Rooted in Scripture, and drawing on poetry, literature, the arts, philosophy, and pop culture, Reframation refuses to settle for pious platitudes, and appeals to each and every one of us to experience and articulate the good news narrative in ways that resonate with the spiritual hunger and longings of those in our contemporary culture.

Right Here, Right Now with Lance Ford is being published through Baker Books and will provide a nuts and bolts approach to the missional lifestyle. The appeal is to the average Christian and away from Hirschs traditional leadership audience. On the Verge with Dave Ferguson integrates the missional movement with current models of church in the West. The 2011 Exponential Conference, a conference with the theme by the same name, will utilize this book as a centerpiece to bring missional ideology to established churches. The Permanent Revolution with Tim Catchim will be released at the 2011 Exponential Conference as well. This book elaborates on the apostolic element of mDNA by focusing on APEST, the five-fold ministry model from Ephesians 4, and its significance for the missional movement. The Faith of Leap with Michael Frost is a book concerning a theology of risk and adventure and its implications for church, mission, leadership and spirituality. -Editorial Review.
