Peace of the City:
A Handbook for Missional Communities
Peace of the City: A Handbook for Missional Communities offers a selection of missional practices for any Christian, small group, or missional community seeking to love their community in the name of Jesus. Each missional practice proceeds from the heart of Scripture, the life of Jesus, real life experiences, and the history of the church, including Benedictine and Franciscan missional practice.
"Beyond the principles of this handbook, the heart and themes of the book articulate the faithful pilgrimage of a community on mission."
Tyndale professor and Director of the Church in the City, Masters of Divinity Program
"This book offers the reader genuinely practical step-by-step advice on what it looks like to lead a community on mission.”
