Recommended Books on Missional Movement (By Rick McCollum)

Here are books I have read recently on the subject of the missional movement and a brief description of each (in no particular order):

The Road to Missional by Michael Frost.  Nashville, Tennessee: Baker Books, 2011.  This book presents missional as being a combination of evangelism and social action and calls us to alert people to the reign and rule of God through Christ.

The Missional Leader by Alan J. Roxburgh and Fred Romanuk.  San Francisco: Jossey-Bass, 2006.  This book gives you insight on how to organize your church to missional action.

Missional Church by Darrell L. Guder.  Grand Rapids, Michigan: William B. Eerdmans Publishing Company, 1998. Used by some as a primer on the subject, this book will help you understand why you should be at the task of being missional.

Worship and Mission After Christendom by Alan Kreider and Eleanor Kreider.  Scottdale, Pennsylvania: Herald Press, 2011. This book takes a historical worship form to formulate a missions mindset for today’s world.

Breaking the Missional Code  by Ed Stetzer and David Putnam.  Nashville, Tennessee: Broadman and Holman Publishers, 2006. This book helps you become a missionary where you live.

Missional Map Making by Alan Roxburgh.  San Francisco: Jossey-Bass, 2010.  Begin working on your own plan of how to find God’s work in your community and connect with it.

Sent: Living the Misional Nature of the Church by Ed Stetzer.  Nashville, Tennessee: Lifeway Press, 2008.  This is a devotional book on doing missions in your community.

Transformational Church by Ed Stetzer and Thom Rainer.  Nashville, Tennessee: Broadman and Holman Publishing Group, 2010.  While this is not a book fully devoted to the missional subject, it does have several chapters that deal with moving the church toward missional action.
