Cover7-01 Earlier this year the board of ACT 3 encouraged me to write a new book that would serve as a small primer on missional-ecumenism. We believed that the vision of ACT 3 needed a simple explanation that could be read by anyone and passed along to others. This new book, with the title The Unity Factor: One Lord, One Church, One Mission, will be published later this month by Christian’s Library Press in Grand Rapids. It is 52-pages in length and can be read in about 30-45 minutes, depending of course on your reading speed. It is an entirely new book and not simply excerpts taken from my earlier book, Your Church Is Too Small. This new book has a lovely foreword written by Dr. Timothy F. George. The book will be available from the usual book sources like Amazon and other online sellers and will be available in various e-versions, including a Kindle version. I will say more about the book when it is actually released but here is the publisher’s catalog description.

    Awesome John,
    This is your passion . . . keep writing about it!

    Great work, John! And while this isn’t the criterion for judging a book (!), I do love the cover.

    This is great news! I am looking forward to reading it.
    I was thinking that maybe I should order a case and give them to all of my [diverse] friends. Then I realized, I really shouldn’t order a case until I have read it, since I won’t yet know if the unity it describes includes all Protestants, all Catholics, all Orthodox, all Mormons, all Mainline, Calvinist & Arminian, all Jehovah’s Witnesses, all Jews — Messianic or otherwise, Harold Camping, Occupy Wall Streeters…etc.
    I look forward to reading in less than 45 minutes so I can quickly decide whom I should give it to for Christmas!
    (sorry, just a weak attempt at ecumenical humor there)
