I am excited that in just a few weeks the 2nd edition of Alan Hirsch’s The Forgotten Ways will be released. The new edition has been thoroughly updated and revised. I look forward to a new generation of church planters and other missionary-minded men and women being challenged by the book. Here is my brief endorsement after reading this new edition:
Reading The Forgotten Ways when it was first published revolutionized the way I understood God’s mission, the essence of the church, and my participation in both. I didn’t think it was possible, but with this second edition, Alan provides even greater clarity and challenge. If you are serious about the future of the church, then read every page and allow it to activate a movement within you and throughout the life of the church. This book will undoubtedly help the church recapture the forgotten ways and become the church Jesus always intended.
If there was one book I could make church planters and other leaders read this year, it would be this revised edition of The Forgotten Ways. If you haven’t read it yet, purchase a copy when it is released and get started.
