Over the course of several decades, missiologist George Hunsberger has written numerous essays on crucial themes for the church's recovery of its missional identity and practice.
The Story That Chooses Us brings these essays together for the first time. The book as a whole presents a composite sense of the missional identity and faithful witness to which the church is called in contemporary Western society.
Hunsberger engages with well-known missiologist Lesslie Newbigin throughout his work as he carefully discerns biblical and theological roots for a contemporary vision of missional theology.
The recurring themes in Hunsberger's essays provide both theological mooring and practical guidance for churches following Christ on the missional path.
