At the time, the MAP process was beginning to have an significant impact in helping churches to listen to God, focus on mission, and be effective in making new disciples.Since then the authors have been amazed by the growth of MAP, and encouraged by the responses of those who found their book useful and have asked them to write again.Aware of the need for more critical evaluation and theological reflection, they draw – in this fully revised and expanded edition – on the experiences of people who have been using the MAP process in different contexts than their own:- Fr. Damian Feeney, parish priest and Catholic Missioner of Lichfield diocese
– Canon David Banbury, Leader of the Parish Mission Support Department, Blackburn diocese
– The Rt. Revd. Dr. Alan Smith, Bishop of St. Albans
– Dr. Stephen Hance, Canon Missioner of Southwark diocese
– Linda Rayner, the United Reformed Church Co-ordinator for Fresh Expressions
The results is a hugely engaging volume which argues convincingly that MAP is all about spirituality (not just a management tool), and a continuing process (rather than something to write, put on the wall, and glance at occasionally!)
