"Distillation of crucial issues for the church by one of the leading voices in missional theology" Since the publication of the groundbreaking volume "Missional Church" in 1998, there has been wide-ranging engagement with the theme of the missional church. One of the leading voices in the missional church conversation, Darrell Guder here lays out basic theological issues that must be addressed for the church to serve God faithfully as Christ's witnessing people. Guder argues that there are major consequences for every classical theological "locus" if the fundamental claims of the missional church discussion are acknowledged. In "Called to Witness" he delves into these consequences, saying that we need to keep doing missional theology until it is possible to leave off the "missional scaffolding" because, after all, "mission" defines the very essence and calling of the church.
