This is the new buzz word for Christian circles and, as Timothy Keller points out, it has come to mean multiple things. And the combination does not really help each other out.
Keller attempts to outline how we shouldn't be simply about promoting our churches for the sake of growth but that we should be using the church for the mission of Jesus which is to bring peace and reconciliation to those around us and with God through Jesus.
How do churches equip the people to do the work? It seems as if most Sunday's boil down to information transference. What if we could get deeper than that? What if churches intentionally cultivated a culture of ministry that goes out and connects people?
Like many of Keller's books, I enjoyed reading his thoughts and ideas. I did not care for the additional essays from other people. However I found that they helped flesh out some questions that might come up when pondering Keller's words. And when Keller would respond to the essays, it provided additional insight.
This wasn't as good as Shaped by the Gospel but I enjoyed reading through it nonetheless.
