Product Description

If you want to know where and how the church is going to grow, think local and global. Think glocal. 'Glocal' is Bob Roberts' (Transformation: How Glocal Churches Transform Lives and the World) term for the seamless connectedness between the local and global. That connection is affecting the church in ways that never could have been imagined in the first-century church, or even the twentieth-century church. And it's creating unprecedented opportunities for individuals and churches - for you and your church - to live out their faith in real time across the world.
Glocalization offers a vision of the unprecedented changes of our times and how they are impacting the church. Discover how these changes will transform the way churches define their mission and how Christians relate to one another and to the world. This provocative book turns the traditional mission-agency model upside down and shows how transformed people and churches can make a glocal (global and local) impact.
Glocalization offers an exciting vision for churches and individuals who want to reach this changing world for Christ.

Editorial Reviews

'In Glocalization, Roberts...outlines six practices the church should adopt to be wise as serpents and innocent as doves in the glocal world. All six are excellent, and by confronting some well-established missionary habits, a few have the potential to be revolutionary....Roberts' inspiring stories from Communist and Islamic nations reinforce his claim that no country is closed to the gospel, just to our usual methods of bringing it....Many pastors have learned ministry techniques by mimicking corporate strategies and good management. In the new flat earth, the entire church must learn to be missionaries, and this will once again require all of the Holy Spirit's gifts, comfort, counsel, power, and fruit....After reading the book, I'm inspired to take the gospel into all the world, starting in my own cul-de-sac.'

    If you are a Christian interested in either world affairs OR growing as a believer you need to read this work. It riffs off of Friedman's The Flat Earth. A good read.
