Format: Paperback
As a person involved in "alternative" ministry I found this book very encouraging to me personally and believe that it will serve as guidance and inspiration for others who are seeking to do new things in their ministries. If you are looking for a how-to manual you are still captive to institutional thinking and have missed the point. This book will not save you the effort of thoughtfulness, planning, and hard work in your own neighborhood. The author has demonstrated that to be in emergent ministry is to be in ministry that is organic and contextual in nature and is often not replicable in a cookie cutter fashion. She clearly catches the flavor of each ministry as unique and contextual. I feel quite validated that Ms Garrison came to many of the same conclusions in her research as I have experienced in my own work. It makes me know that I am not alone.

More About the Author

On the same day that Princess Di was brought into this world tiara in hand, this Yankee gal with an accent befitting a Southern debutante was born breech first. Ever since my upside down birth, I have always viewed life from a unique perspective. "Becky, only you see it that way" is a frequent comment made by friends and relatives alike. I began writing for The Wittenburg Door in 1994 and contribute to a range of outlets including Washington Post's On Faith column, The Guardian's Belief section, Killing the Buddha, Geez, The Revealer, American Atheist magazine, Believe Out Loud, and The Religious Left.

The first video highlighted on my Amazon author site came from the documentary The Ordinary Radicals (; the second and third videos are from (props to Travis Reed); and the fourth is from the documentary Nailin' it to the Church (
