Missio Alliance Essential Reading List of 2017

Every year the Missio Alliance creates a list of essential and formative books in the area of mission. They write: "But we are a community undergoing our own process of exploration, learning, and growth that relies on voices and work beyond our Missio Alliance community. So at the end of each year, our editors and Writing Team compile a list of our favorite books published within the previous year—books that have guided us in careful thinking, shaped our imaginations, imparted deeper insight, and inspired us to fuller participation in God’s mission."

This year "The Bees of Rainbow Falls" made it on this list! Check it out here. I would personally recommend a number of other books on the list, including anything by James K.A. Smith, Bruxy Cavey, and Brian Zahnd. But there are a few others on the list that are new to me and just made it onto my own reading list.
