Editorial Reviews

From the Author

This book is an updated version of what is now widely considered a defining book in its category.  In re-reading and editing it, we are still utterly convinced of its currency and urgency.  And although we have ameliorated our language to suit a church-in-transition over the last ten years, we trust that this book still rings with a somewhat revolutionary passion. 

There are accumulated customer reviews on the previous edition, some of them are great summaries of the book itself.  The ones associated with this new edition actually came out before the new edition and are late in the piece and somewhat more reactionary.  10 years of reviews can be accessed here amzn.to/11Ybsu9 --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

From the Back Cover

"The Shaping of Things to Come has achieved landmark status in the missional church conversation. Ten years after its first print, it remains the starting point for many of the concepts we are fleshing out to this day. So welcome to this revised edition. And I eagerly look forward to new insights!"--David Fitch, author Prodigal Christianity, professor at Northern Seminary

"The Shaping of Things to Come . . . calls us forward to a grander view of the church-in-mission than the one to which we have become all too accustomed. I am personally grateful for this new edition."--Mark Batterson, lead pastor, National Community Church; author, The Circle Maker



"Not often does a title of a book prophesy itself. But The Shaping of Things to Come has shaped things to come in the global Christian world like perhaps no one book published in the past decade. It truly is a 'classic,' and this new edition promises to continue its tradition of shaking and shaping."--Leonard Sweet, author; professor, Drew University and George Fox University


"One of those rare books that . . . gets deep into your psyche and alters your perspective on what it means to be the church today, what it means to follow Jesus on his adventurous mission."--Dan Kimball, author, They Like Jesus but Not the Church


"As we look at the depth and breadth of the missional movement, I continually direct people back to The Shaping of Things to Come. Things have definitely shaped around the concepts of this book, and it continues to be a plumbline for missional thought leadership and practice."--Hugh Halter, author, The Tangible Kingdom and Sacrilege


"I first met Alan Hirsch and Michael Frost when they were writing Shaping. They were intellectually nimble, missionally devoted and refreshingly revolutionary. Little did I know that their book would so valiantly impact the future of the Church for at least the next decade."--Linda Berquist, Church planting catalyst and coach, and author, Church Turned Inside Out --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
