Susan Hope

ISBN-13: 9781596271296



Combining real-life case studies with vital lessons from her own personal journey, Susan Hope explores what happens to us on the inside when we cross boundaries and become missional Christians. This discerning book reflects on the inner resources and attitude of mind required to engage in mission in a postmodern, multicultural society.

Susan Hope spent seventeen years in parish ministry before becoming the Missioner for Sheffield Diocese in England. She is Canon of Sheffield, and a Preacher at Canterbury Cathedral.

“The Mission-shaped Series is a God-send, literally. Every congregation on both sides of the Atlantic, be they Anglican or Episcopalian, liturgical or evangelical, should delve into these books immediately and thoughtfully and, above all else, prayerfully.”  —Phyllis Tickle, author of The Great Emergence: How Christianity Is Changing and Why

“The church does not exist as a convention or a club or even as a self-perpetuating community; it exists as a first-hand witness to transformation of life. This resource focuses relentlessly on that mission, helping every one of us to embrace a challenging new way of life.” —Daniel Simons, Priest for Liturgy, Hospitality & Pilgrimage, Trinity Wall Street Church, New York
