'The Missionary Theologian' is easily in my top five reads for 2020. I think all my ministry friends are sick to death of me recommending it to them. E.D Burns writes in a readable, encouraging and informative way. While also being challenging, revealing and critical of the past in the hope that we move forward theologically to a more robust missionary mindset. And I know this is not a church planting book, but as as a church planter, I couldn’t help viewing the book through that lens which I found helpful and impactful in my ministry. There is so much more I want to write on this book, but I will simply say buy it - well worth a read!
