it was great to read a first review of pioneer practice from russ bravo at inspire. he says
Pioneer Practice manages to both provide inspiration and motivation for the pioneer, while being hugely pragmatic and realistic about the cost, the struggle and the challenge of doing things differently. Full of wisdom, deep questions and electrifying examples of what God can do when people who don’t fit the established order get stuck into changing things.
i also wrote up one of the 'electrifying examples' from the book for an article for inspire too - church for people who want to punch stuff
