A Sending Church Reading List

IMG_B9A6F77ABAA6-1Last year at Upstream we were pumped to hear how one of our books, The Sending Church Defined, was being used in a big way. A state denominational organization had purchased several hundred copies and distributed them to pastors and other church leaders. In light of this honor, we thought it would be appropriate to re-release the free resource, The Sending Church Defined Bibliography.

If you have already come across the book, then you know it has a 15-page bibliography. If you haven’t encountered the book, you may be thinking it’s a monster. In reality, however, it’s a reasonably quick read. Why include so many references in such a small book? First, to show that sending is legitimately expressed in God himself and rooted in the Scriptures. In other words, it’s more than a trend. Second, we wanted readers to be exposed to many of the terrific voices contributing to the sending church conversation, people who are helping churches build a healthy missiology.

The Sending Church Defined Bibliography is simply a free 5-page PDF document that organizes the books into four basic categories: missiology, ecclesiology, theology, and formation. Each book is also linked to where you may purchase it online. We hope this is a helpful resource to you and your church or organization!
