Pioneers 4 Life

Explorations in Theology and Wisdom for Pioneering Leaders

Edited by David Male


Price: £8.99
Publisher:BRF (Bible Reading Fellowship)
Published:August 2011
Contributors are Richard Bauckham, Graham Cray, John Drane, Lucy Moore, Mark Russell.
This book includes article-length offerings from various authors, interwoven with stories from pioneering leaders engaged in grass-roots level church and evangelism. The articles are generally well-written and informative; they include an assessment of the contemporary scene by Graham Cray, insights from Paul and Acts by John Drane and Richard Bauckham respectively, as well as contributions from Mike Moynagh and George Lings. However, it was the selection of stories from practitioners which most caught my imagination! Details about some very exciting pioneer work are recorded here and these would be an encouragement to many others who are working at the coal-face of such ministry or contemplating a call to do so.
If you are interested in pioneer ministry, this book will be well worth your while, both for its Biblical and theological thinking as well as its stories. It also includes a helpful list of web-based resources for pioneers which would help you explore this topic further.
