How to Be Ambassadors of Hope in a New Babylon
"This book comes at a most important time, when orthodox Protestant believers in particular are struggling. In some ways it is the age-old problem of how to relate Christianity to culture, but in other ways we are faced with some unique challenges--namely, how to engage not merely a pre-Christian or a non-Christian but a post-Christian society. Williams's book helps us avoid the twin dangers of being too at home in or too withdrawn from our culture. We are exiles, but exiles on mission. Highly recommended."
--Tim Keller, pastor emeritus, Redeemer Presbyterian Church, New York City
"Williams wants church leaders to prepare marketplace congregants for fruitful, faithful engagement in contemporary culture marked by three all-too-rare characteristics: the emotional maturity for coping with our status as exiles, the spiritual rootedness required for eschewing comfortable assimilation, and the deep understanding of our culture's beliefs, values, motivations, affections, and rituals that will enable our witness to 'translate' to nonbelieving neighbors and coworkers. Exiles on Mission calls us to a far deeper and more intentional discipleship and provides fresh insights and tools for that journey."
--Amy L. Sherman, author, Kingdom Calling: Vocational Stewardship for the Common Good
"Exiles on Mission is a passionate plea to rethink our calling as the people of the church, 'sent' by God into every sphere of our society as we go about our daily work. This book will be core in our training of church-planting pastors and their leader teams as they seek to embrace and embody the truth and love of the gospel in cities around the world."
--Katherine Leary Alsdorf, founder, Redeemer's Center for Faith & Work; interim director, City to City's Global Faith & Work Initiative; cowriter with Tim Keller, Every Good Endeavor
"I experienced so many 'aha!' moments reading Exiles on Mission. Williams has written a perceptive, challenging, and ultimately hopeful account of how Christians everywhere can be the transformational community Jesus calls us to be."
--Justin Brierley, host, Unbelievable? radio show and podcast
