I’m really into the ethos behnd the missional movement but I confess that I need to be read up on it more so that I can lead our church in that direction. So I’m looking fro some help. there seems to be 100’s of books that are “missional” but I don’t have the time of energy to read them all. So what books are essentials?

I’ve read:

– Breaking the missional Code – Ed Stetzer

– Compelled by Love – Ed Stezer

– Radical Reformission – Mark Driscoll

– Confessions of a Reformission Minister – Mark Driscoll

Which others would you recomend?
