Description

As Christians, we pray for God's kingdom to come "on earth as it is in heaven." But what does that even mean? Would we recognize God's kingdom if it moved in next door? Learn to see God's work in your neighborhood, city, and the world--and learn how to join it. With stories from his own city of Houston, Texas, author Marty Troyer introduces a theology of place that empowers us to truly see the work of God where we live, work, and play. The Gospel Next Door unpacks the gospel through the lenses of following Jesus, making peace, and overcoming injustice. Those seeking to connect more deeply with the world that God so loved will find compelling stories and practical ideas for healing brokenness and imagining new life. Start living out the kingdom of God here and now.show more

Review quote

-'Love God and love your neighbor' was Jesus' grand Scripture summary. Marty Troyer paints a picture of what loving God as loving your neighbor can actually look like in the everyday stuff of life. Troyer's important book is part of a large and growing movement of Christians rediscovering the practices of 'local-church.' This book points toward collaboration more than competition, and discovering God's Shalomic dream for your place and its people more than pursuing your own vision. Be careful, The Gospel Next Door may mess with your plans because it'll invite you to listen deeply, to join humbly, and to learn to love your real neighbor and the neighborhood within which God has placed you.- --Dwight J.
