Faith seeking action; mission, social movements, and the church in motion.


Faith seeking action; mission, social movements, and the church in motion.

Leffel, Gregory P.

Scarecrow Pr.


292 pages



Intercultural studies; no.1


Co-founder of a missional community in Lexington, Kentucky, Leffel describes the church as an active participant in God's mission, first from a familiar theological perspective, then from a sociological perspective rooted in the study of social movements. He introduces mission-ecclesiology and explains how a mission-informed theology of the church and a sociological understanding of social movements can be integrated into the church as a movement of God's people.
