Borderland Churches is a call to embrace the pluralistic, post Christian and postmodern culture with a sense of opportunity and hope. The author uses the image of the church crossing over into an "in -between time." A place where faith is lived outside the walls of the church engaging the community in incarnational ways.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must read! Gary adds his voice to the message of what's happening in our culture and in our churches and what needs to happen. His insight and clarity articulate what's been rolling around in the collective minds of everyone who has been trying to put their finger on the disconnect between religion and God. In his book, he demonstrates a passion for the Church, the people and for God. And he calls for us to once again be passionate followers of Jesus Christ who listen with compassion as we navigate the waters of change in our churches. Buy it, read it and grow, but be careful, you'll want to buy a copy for everyone you know.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple, accessible, and profound wisdom! This is a cutting-edge book! It is written for church leaders, and for the people in the pew. If you want your church to be relevant in today's society, read this book. Gary communicates with clarity and precision. His material is theologically grounded and very practical. This is missional church conversation at its best. I think I underlined about half of the book, and I kept thinking, "We could do this!" One unique thing about this book is that it is written from a Canadian perspective. With so many books being written from an American perspective, this will be a welcome change for readers from Canada. Americans should read the book as well though, because society's attitude toward the church in the USA isn't far behind what is happening in Canada.
