Off-Road Disciplines: Spiritual Adventures of Missional Leaders by Earl Creps

The word "missional" is a new buzz word being used by many churches today. Earl Crep explains that "Missional leaders see the world through the eyes of Jesus and see Jesus in the world." This book takes a look at "Off Road Disciplines" used by many "Missional Leaders". What I liked about this book is that it goes against alot of what you read in church leadership and growth books. For example, Crep writes, "The real source of assessment for Christian leaders therefore becomes not the world's bottom line but the Kingdom's top line, the fact that a moment of ultimate accountability with Jesus awaits all of us: "For we will all stand nefore God's judgement seat." The only problem with this book is that the disciplines aren't that rememberable. But if you're an emerging church kind of leader, you will love this book.
