Why Did I Write Your Church Is Too Small?

I have written or edited twelve books. I have enjoyed the work involved in every one of them, some of them much more than others. But I have never written a book that I felt so deeply about as Your Church Is Too Small. This book is really “my story.” It tells what my wife and I wanted everyone to know about our journey to missional-ecumenism and why we remain committed to the larger work of ACT 3. This is also why this book is so intensely personal and why I employ narrative in the way I did in writing it. It is something of a memoir. It tells a story and then explains the theology behind how that story. Here is how I explain it.
