The impact that John V. Taylor had on our contemporary understanding of mission is vast - his determination that mission should mean engagement across cultural boundaries has deep resonance today.

In 'Imagining Mission with John V. Taylor', leading missional thinkers Jonny Baker and Cathy Ross invite us into a vision of church, mission and society which takes John Taylor's ideas seriously, seeking to imagine what Taylor's insights might mean for these three areas in our contemporary context. The result is a clarion call to the church to take bigger risks and dream bigger dreams.

Review quote

This is one of the most significant books I've ever read! Cathy and Jonny have tapped into a source that can revolutionize our understanding of church, and the mission that calls church forth. Taylor's creativity and imagination, and Cathy and Jonny's as well, can stir up the creativity and imagination that is latent in us all to "leap over the wall." -- Stephen B. Bevans, Catholic Theological Union, USA John Taylor teaches us that mission is not a subset of theology, as has been traditionally thought. Theology, rather, is a but a subset of the mission of God - a mission focussed finally on Jesus Christ. There is no more vital lesson the church today needs to learn than that. This book is a great stimulus to help us take it to heart. -- Philip Mounstephen, Bishop of Truro
