    Ok first up, the positive. I love Al's work. I find him a challenging and stimulating writer, and I think he is a massively important thinker for the Western church right now. And I love the idea of this book. I downloaded it because the title and brief are a bulls-eye. This is exactly what we need right now. My frustration is that it doesn't really deliver. There are some great sentences (as we've come to expect from Al) and some interesting alleyways to wander up, but the text doesn't flow well, the two-author thing is clunky and it just didn't grip me. I found it was a bit like one of those Hollywood comedies where all the best lines are in the trailer, and you wonder why you bothered with the movie... Overall I rate this book as a door-opener. If it leads to more work, more research, more resources and more creativity on the mobilising of God's people in everyone-to-everywhere mission, then it will have done a good job. But it doesn't, in itself, go the distance.

    I came to this book hoping for 1) some strong theory from people who have led missional churches well; 2) a resource to return to with the people I pastor; and 3) some "right here, right now" practices to introduce at the churches I serve. It delivers on none of those, and it rehashes older books. It's redeemed to maybe 2.5 stars by the reflections on the church's working within a US suburban culture that only seems church-friendly, as well as a couple helpful practical ideas.

    While not an easy read by any means (Hirsch is definitely an intellectual and since he wrote the foreword and prologue, they were difficult) but it's worth reading. My life was seriously on the safe road. I was taking no chances for the cause of Christ and this book made me stop and really think about that and make a serious change.

    Good introIf you are not familiar with the works of alan Hirsch this book will give you a great intro into some wonderful and essential stuff. If you are familiar with his work you won't find much new here.

    A helpful book about what it means to missional. Can be used as a guide in helping people understand that it is not about more and more programs but about reaching out to people in the context of everyday life.

    I read this in record quick time as pre-reading for a course. It's very challenging and I'm going to trade our the practicalities with my course-mates. On the downside there were to many specifically American cultural references which,at times,left me guessing.

    Second half is full of practical ideas, but getting that far was a walk through the desert....

    Some great ideas about the church being on mission right here, right now. A call to challenge us into rethinking what church is and how we share the message of the Gospel with all we meet.
