Boundless: What Global Expressions of Faith Teach Us about Following Jesus by Bryan Bishop

Discover a more expansive way to follow Jesus.

In his many travels as a researcher for Youth With a Mission, Bryan Bishop has discovered a startling phenomenon: hidden movements of Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists, and others who are experiencing and following Jesus outside the boundaries of traditional Western Christianity. Through colorful firsthand accounts, Bishop explains how these fresh expressions of faith can revitalize our own.

If you want to grow in areas where you feel stagnant or disillusioned, if you are concerned about friends who have left the church behind, or if you chafe against Christianity's European-American cultural box, you will find in this book a liberating view of what it looks like to follow Christ.

This is quite an interesting book. Bryan Bishop’s Boundless: What Global Expressions of Faith Teach Us about Following Jesus shares firsthand accounts of expressions of faith from around the world, showing how members of different cultures connect with Jesus. His accounts offer challenge and insight to readers used to Western tradition, and he certainly had me thinking on more than one occasion as I read. Boundless is a valuable and important read, and I would recommend it to any Christian reader.

Thanks to Baker Book Bloggers, I received a copy of Boundless and the opportunity to provide an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review, and all the opinions I have expressed are my own.
