Justice in the Burbs Excerpt

Baker Books has put an excerpt of Will and Lisa Samson's Justice in the Burbs: Being the Hands of Jesus Wherever You Live. The book is scheduled for release on August 7th, but you can get the introduction and chapter 1 pdf free. This looks like a very good book and hope that we get a chance to discuss in the next couple of months.

Michael Frost Audio

Many of the ideas from Michael Frost‘s book Exiles: Living Missionally in a Post-Christian Culture, are talked about in sessions that he did in Peterborough, Ontario in 2006. Resonate makes this audio available as a podcast or download from ODEO. I have had problems with the podcast taking a long time to download, but the mp3s downloaded fine.
