Here is a taster from the podcast interview:

If you were talking to one younger missional church leader and you could recommend just one book to them, other than the Bible, what would it be?

Honestly, it would be the Bible. I’d tell them to really look at the book of Nehemiah which I think is an urban rebuilding effort. I would encourage them as well to spend a lot of time studying the book of Jonah and looking at God’s heart for a very difficult nation. I would tell them to look at Daniel and how he conducted himself in Babylon, and Joseph and how he conducted himself in Egypt. So I know I didn’t really answer the question, but I guess that’s the answer to the question!
