The Table I Long For

Author: Shawn Brace
$11.99

Are you tired of simply going to church? Learn how to start being church in your community—a community where every person is welcome at the table.

Shawn Brace’s world began to shift one Friday night, after a close-knit gathering in a family home. “Why does church have to be more than this?” he asked himself. It was a question that led him into Scripture, paving the way for a fresh understanding of the mission and dynamics of God’s family—and eventually the re-launch of his church.

"We'd really overcomplicated the whole church thing ... we began thinking church was about putting on programmes and maintaining buildings - when it's really about being with and investing in people."

With stories from his experience, Brace paints an inspiring vision of what it looks like to participate in the mission and family of God in ways that are relevant and meaningful to a post-Christian society. 

“Shawn Brace’s The Table I Long For is the ‘must read’ book of the year for anyone interested in the church and its mission—especially in our secular age. Shawn writes with clarity, conviction and a depth that keeps you engaged page by page. He challenges our assumptions about church and takes us back to the Bible over and over again with an invitation to settle no more for what is, but to pursue with holy abandon, what can be. I could not recommend this book enough. Two thumbs way up from me.”
