From the Back Cover

No matter where you are, you are on a mission

You have concern for others. You want to be involved in solutions. You want to live your life for Jesus. You want to be a missional Christian. But what does that really mean? How can you live out God's mission in the world, right here, right now?

In this inspiring yet practical book, Alan Hirsch and Lance Ford show you how to live missionally regardless of your situation, vocation, or location. Touching on issues of discipleship, spirituality, and church at every level of experience, Right Here, Right Now calls you to be the person God has made you to be.

"Right Here, Right Now is a powerful new resource. It is both inspirational and instructional for serious Jesus-followers who understand church as a verb."--Reggie McNeal, author, The Present Future and Missional Renaissance

"In Right Here, Right Now, my friends Alan Hirsch and Lance Ford help us raise up a movement of people on mission."--Ed Stetzer, president, LifeWay Research

"You will never again see yourself as just another average Christian. Alan and Lance help us see how every one of us can play a role in God's mission here and now." --Dave Ferguson, lead pastor, Community Christian Church; movement leader, NewThing

"Hirsch and Ford believe that we've 'demonstrated' enough. It's now time for 'doing.' This book shows how to be missional 'Right Here, Right Now.'"--Leonard Sweet, professor, Drew Theological School, George Fox University

By Bradley J. Brisco VINE VOICE on January 17, 2011
Format: Paperback
I am often asked to recommend a book that does a good job of introducing the missional church conversation. While there are several great resources that deal with missional church issues, I sometimes struggle with recommending the precise book because the majority of books written in the past decade are directed either towards church leaders or academic circles.

I am excited to say that this latest edition to the missional church literature, co-authored by Alan Hirsch and Lance Ford, will make the task of book recommendations much easier. Not only is "RHRN" an excellent introduction to the missional conversation, but it is really the best attempt to date to equip all believers to live missionally regardless of "vocation or location." The book is designed, as stated by Alan in the preface, to "make missional church what it should be: a movement of the whole people of God in every sphere and domain of society."

The format of the book is unique to most co-authored books. As stated in the introduction, "The contents of the book are sandwiched between a briefing chapter ("Right Here") in the beginning and a debriefing chapter ("Right Now") at the end, both written by Alan. These are designed to provide a framework for new thinking and acting. The middle sections are written by Lance, but Alan inserts himself into the conversation all along the way, like a resident heckler or a built-in commentator of sorts." I found this format to work well.

In Alan's briefing chapter he provides an excellent summary of key missional ideas.

I need to come out and say it: I really love Alan Hirsch, his writing, his heart, and his passion for seeing the gospel of Jesus Christ enflamed in those who read his stuff. I've read everything he has written and the message is consistent: Fall back in love with Jesus, passionately engage new paradigms of spreading the gospel, and creatively seek fresh missional expressions of Christian living.

Right Here, Right Now is another strong examination of what it takes to become a fresh, missional expression of the bride of Jesus.

In this book, Hirsch provides the "nerdy" theological overview prior to each section, and makes his stamp through "fly-bys" on approximately every other page. Lance Ford, the co-author, provides the extremely practical and applicable expressions of missional living.

I love this combination because so often, the nerdy "theologian" inside all of us gets stuck in the theoretical and fails to apply the thinking to everyday living (I'm confessing here). This book, however, challenges a person to think deeply about what it takes to live missionally all the while pressing people into extremely practical versions of living.

Personally, I was challenged to:
* Create more community and permanence. I need to reach out to our neighbors and set aside more time to eat with "strangers."
* Adopt a single mom family. I love this idea.
* Simply engage in everyday encounters. Sometimes I fail to look past the check-out clerk or the bank teller because I'm thinking of something else. Instead, we need to simply smile, converse, and love on the people right in front of us.

The one side I slightly disagree with is his critique of the attractional model of church development. Attractional, they write, equals extractional.

Not long ago I got into a debate on Facebook with someone who was arguing that the term "missional" should just be abandoned. His argument was that the word was being used in so many ways that it has ceased to mean anything. He also argued that the word had served its usefulness and that it was just time to abandon it to the junk heap of yesterday's "flavor of the month."

I countered that the word had only begun to lose its punch among those who spend their lives discussing the word, its implications and implementations. I suggested that perhaps those who write and speak and preach about "missional" should do more to help ordinary Christians who don't spend their lives writing books, attending conferences and writing blog posts understand the word and why it is at stake. My parting shot was that I believed one could walk into any church in America and ask the average church member if they have even heard the word "missional" and you would find that they haven't.

My point was that the word is principally overused by people who talk about it all the time but that very little of its promise is drifting down to the average person-in-the-pew.

(Of course, my friend countered that the average person in the pew doesn't care about missional. I countered that the "APIP" can't care about it because s/he has never heard of it.)

Thankfully, Alan Hirsch and Lance Ford have come along and published a book that seeks to encourage everyday Christians around the necessity of becoming and being missional. They have managed to do this in their new book because (1) they see missional as applying both to the formation of missional communities (e.g.
