In the book, the authors allege that the Western church as we know it is in a state of decline, due in part to the idol of stability and security among its members. They invite the church to become transformed through engaging in risk and adventure, entering what they term “liminal” experiences, a threshold position where disorientation is experienced and the nature of relationships are restructured and people enter into true community with one another. It is not “safe” church, per se, but one where communities are reached as never before and people experience deep communion with one another.
The authors also discuss how churches can cultivate and achieve this missional approach and its resulting effects on discipleship, spirituality and leadership.
