    1. An excellent book for those looking to establish and grown progressive, Christian communities in the context on mainstream denominations The author is a member of a progressive monastic community, but the advice given about growing a faith community, from training the ministers to creating a broad membership to following a rule of life together could apply to any church doing things differently.

    2. Heath is such a gift to the modern church that has forgotten where we came from In this book the story is told about missions communities but it also includes a wonderful how to guide, if you will, to both engage the topic of Missional communities but also establish them within your area
