The Tangible Kingdom

I am currently reading The Tangible Kingdom: Creating Incarnational Community – The Posture and Practices of Ancient Church Now. The authors, Hugh Halter and Matt Smay, are the pastors of Adullam (”refuge”), a missional church in Denver. This is a very exciting book about missional living, intentional activities, and habits of life that can help any “faith community make God’s kingdom more tangible” in an America that is continuing to go through a cultural shift.

In the forward, Reggie McNeal says:

this book…will help you re-language your conversations as a Christian leader so that you can imagine different solutions for greater missional effectiveness. Their cultural analysis is good missiology. The descriptions they provide of how they operate give you concrete ways to move forward if you want to become more incarnational.”

The Tangible Kingdom is proving to be a great follow-up read to Total Church (see posts below). Let me recommend this book to you. If you are concerned about missional and incarnational matters, I am confident that you will want to put it on your “to be read” list.

    I thought I’d add a short film I created in connection with the Tangible Kingdom Book. Let me know your thoughts- andy

    We noticed on your blog that several months ago you wrote about The Tangible Kingdom by Hugh Halter and Matt Smay. Thanks for taking the time to do that.

    One of the questions Matt and Hugh often received following the launch of that book was “Loved the book, but how do I get my community to do that?” The newly launched The Tangible Kingdom Primer is our effort to help small groups and churches do just that. It is an 8-week guide to creating missional and incarnational communities.

    If you would like to receive a free copy of the Primer, please contact us at: books{AT} Please provide your name, the street mailing address you would like it delivered to (no P.O. Box please) and your email address. In the subject line, put Tangible Kingdom Primer Blog Copy.
