Resources of the Year
A Celebration of the Best
This year marks our 12th annual Outreach Resources of the Year, where we gather resources published in the last year and, with the help of expert panelists, feature those voices that can make a significant difference in your understanding and practice of ministry—books on evangelism, apologetics, leadership, the missional church and much more.
This year you will find titles that will help you better connect with Muslims, explore apologetics for the urban community, rediscover the meaning of the kingdom and refocus our commitment to being good news people in a culture where the notion of grace seems to be vanishing.
In this issue we also focus on the church’s clash with culture, and best-selling author David Platt gives helpful perspective of what it means to stand for truth gracefully. And we examine five lessons from an unlikely church planter, assess the state of multiethnic ministry and find practical help for Easter ministry and beyond.
Let’s dig in.
