HOLDING UP HALF THE SKY: A BIBLICAL CASE FOR WOMEN LEADING AND TEACHING IN THE CHURCH

Women have played significant roles in ministry and leadership throughout the history of the church and the pages of the Bible. Today, women make up more than half the church, and do much of the mission, ministry, and discipleship in the life of the church. But women have often been held back from ministry roles.

Graham Joseph Hill outlines the biblical vision for women in ministry and leadership. He offers a biblical and passionate call for women to be released to teach, to lead, to preach, to serve, to pastor, and to minister in every area of the church. The Bible paints a radical vision of women, empowered and emboldened for full ministry participation in Christ’s church. The biblical vision for women and for their role as teachers, witnesses, disciplers, and leaders transforms not only personal lives, but also the church and the world.

This book offers a biblical case for women teaching and leading in the church. Hill then explores practical ways that we can empower and release more female leaders in the church, and ways that we can amplify the voices and honor the gifts of women in the way Jesus intended. Together women and men can revitalize the church and renew the world.

HEALING OUR BROKEN HUMANITY: PRACTICES FOR REVITALIZING THE CHURCH AND RENEWING THE WORLD

16th Annual Outreach Magazine Resource of the Year – Culture

We live in conflicted times. Our newsfeeds are filled with inequality, division, and fear. We want to make a difference and see justice restored because Jesus calls us to be a peacemaking and reconciling people. But how do we do this?

GLOBALCHURCH: RESHAPING OUR CONVERSATIONS, RENEWING OUR MISSION, REVITALIZING OUR CHURCHES

Christianity seems to be in decline in the West. But many churches in Asia, Africa, Latin America and other parts of the Majority World are growing. Before long, two-thirds of Christians will live in Asia, Africa and Latin America. Western Christianity can no longer claim to be the center of the global church.

What does this mean for global Christian mission? What does it mean for worship, theology, faith and evangelism in the West?

In GlobalChurch, Dr Graham Joseph Hill engages with more than 100 high-profile Majority World Christian leaders and asks what they can teach the West about mission, leadership, hospitality, creation care, education, worship, and more.

Dr Hill challenges the Western church to move away from a Eurocentric and Americentric view of church and mission. He calls the church to construct global missional conversations. The future of the global church―including the churches of the West―exists in these global exchanges.

GlobalChurch is an indispensible guide for the church as it navigates the unique global experiences of the twenty-first century.

SALT, LIGHT AND A CITY (SECOND EDITION): ECCLESIOLOGY FOR THE GLOBAL MISSIONAL COMMUNITY: VOLUME 1, WESTERN VOICES

Dr Graham Joseph Hill’s pioneering book remains the seminal work on missional ecclesiology. The bestselling first edition redefined theology for the missional church. Hill builds biblical foundations in conversation with major theologians, including Sarah Coakley, John Zizioulas, Stanley Hauerwas, Miroslav Volf, and Jurgen Moltmann.

In this major update, Dr Graham Joseph Hill offers new insights and provides fresh examples of missional churches. In the first edition, Hill interacted with twelve major theologians to build a missional ecclesiology. In this thoroughly updated edition, he interacts with sixteen major theologians from the Western world. This edition includes five new chapters and an expanded treatment on the key convictions of global missional theology. It also offers a new study guide that has been uploaded on an innovative website linked to this book.

This expanded edition now becomes volume 1 in a series on missional ecclesiology. In volume 2, Dr Graham Joseph Hill will turn our attention to voices from the Majority World. Known for his groundbreaking approach to theology–theology for the global missional community–Hill shows how God is releasing his global church to mission, across all cultures and Christian traditions. This extensive update to Hill’s influential work offers pioneering theology and practices that will continue to shape the global missional church for generations.

SIGNS OF HOPE IN THE CITY: RENEWING URBAN MISSION, EMBRACING RADICAL HOPE

By 2025 there will be 3 billion people living in urban slums. For Christian spirituality to be authentic, it must engage with issues of urban transformation.

In this book, Dr Graham Joseph Hill and a wide group of urban missionaries explore themes of urban poverty, creation care, human trafficking and asylum seekers and refugees. They explore the role of the local church as a “sign of hope” in cities and explores ways to recruit, equip, and sustain people for hope-filled urban mission.

This is an important book, touching on hope and transformation, interfaith dynamics and the church as “hope enfleshed.”

SALT, LIGHT, AND A CITY: INTRODUCING MISSIONAL ECCLESIOLOGY

The Christian church faces enormous challenges and rich opportunities in a globalized and changing world. Among the noise, it is becoming clear that the church and its leaders need a missional self-understanding.

In this volume, Dr Graham Joseph Hill captures the thinking of twelve church leaders from diverse streams of Christianity and frames their thinking around one question: “What does it mean for the church to be missional?”

This book provides a fresh and substantial introduction to missional ecclesiology for a disrupted age.

SERVANTSHIP: SIXTEEN SERVANTS ON THE FOUR MOVEMENTS OF RADICAL SERVANTSHIP

Servantship is following the pattern of Jesus Christ – the servant Lord – and his mission. It is a life not only of discipleship but also of self-emptying, sacrifice, and of valuing others above yourself.

In this pioneering work, sixteen Christians describe four movements of servantship.

  1. From leadership to servantship
  2. From shallowness to dynamic theological reflection
  3. From theory to courageous practice
  4. From forgetfulness to transforming memory

In the words of Jesus, “Whoever wants to become great among you must be a servant.” Servantship provides theologically sound and highly practical tools for leaders to inculcate Christ-like patterns of love, mission and humility in their ministry.
