Three far-reaching trends--terrorism, pluralism, and globalization--have irrevocably altered how we live, think, and communicate in the twenty-first century. We now live in a "glocal" world: what happens globally impacts us locally, and what happens locally impacts things globally. These changes have profound implications for followers of Jesus. Rick Love offers biblical wisdom and practical insights on how to navigate the complexities of communication in this interconnected world. He also invites you to an inward journey that helps you better discern how the things of the heart relate to the work of the ministry. 'Glocal: Following Jesus in the 21st Century' is a call to be a faithful follower of and a winsome witness for Jesus. Love will help you better embody and communicate a core message worth dying for, an integrated identity worth living for, and a global dream worth suffering for.
"Rick Love has done what I thought was impossible--synthesized and made sense of several of the most complex issues facing followers of Jesus in the twenty-first century. Not only that, he provides a vision for moving forward with sensitivity and compassion for 'the other' while holding firm to biblical truth. This is a must-read for any and every follower of Jesus who desires to engage the world as Jesus did." --Carl Medearis, author of Speaking of Jesus, Muslims Christians and Jesus
"My heart resonates strongly with the message of this book. It packs a powerful prophetic critique, but does so with the gentleness of Christ. At the Lausanne Congress in Cape Town 2010, I pleaded for a twenty-first century reformation through a return to humility, integrity, and simplicity, renouncing the idolatries of power, success, and greed. Rick Love calls for a reformation in very similar terms, urging churches, individuals, and agencies who are committed to serving the mission of God in the world to seek a restored integrity, identity, and authenticity in their witness to Jesus in our 'glocal' world." --Christopher J. H. Wright, Langham Partnership; Author of The Mission of God and The Mission of God's People
