From the Inside Flap
When Reggie McNeal's best-selling book The Present Future was published, it quickly became one of the definitive works on the "missional church movement." McNeal helped to define the widespread movement among churches that wanted to become more oriented toward the culture and community around them. In that book, McNeal asked the tough questions that churches needed to wrestle with to begin to think about who they are and what they are doing.
In Missional Renaissance, the much-anticipated follow-up to his groundbreaking book, Reggie McNeal shows the three significant shifts in the church leaders' thinking and behavior that will allow their congregations to chart a course toward becoming truly a missional congregation.
To embrace the missional model, church leaders and members must shift
- From an internal to an external focus, ending the church as exclusive social club model
- From running programs and ministries to developing people as its core activity
- From church-based leadership to community-engaged leadership
The book is filled with in-depth discussions of what it means to become a missional congregation and important information on how to make the transition. With an understanding of the nature of the missional church and the practical suggestions outlined in this book, church leaders and members will be equipped to move into what McNeal sees as the most viable future for Christianity.
Missional Renaissance offers a clear path for any leader or congregation that wants to breathe new life into the church and to become revitalized as true followers of Jesus.

If I had one negative thing to say about the book it is that I'm not really a fan of McNeal's tone in several parts of this book. Some of the sections read like a father that has told his son for the thousandth time to clean his room to no avail.
