Our world is marked by unprecedented degrees of multiculturalism, ethnic diversity, social shifts, international collaboration, and technology-driven changes. The changes are profound, especially when you consider the unchecked decline in the influence, size, and social standing of the church. There is an undercurrent of anxiety in the evangelical world, and a hunger for something new. And we’re sensing the urgency of it.

We need fresh, creative counterintuitive ways of doing ministry and church and leading it in the twenty-first century. We need to adapt. Fast. Both in our practices and our thinking. The aim of this book is simple: When we understand the powerful forces at work in the world today, we’ll learn how something called The Third Culture can yield perhaps the most critical missing ingredient in the church today—adaptability—and help the church remain on the best side of history. 

The Monkey and the Fish looks at our new global village and the church’s role in that village in a revolutionary way. It’s a way to reconnect with the historical roots of what Jesus envisioned the church could be—a people known for a brand of love, unity, goodness, and extravagant spirit that defies all conventions.

    " I loved this book and is great to read from a person that doesn't even know a box exists when thinking about church. It stretches you, pulls you, rearranges you and you have fun as you do it. Great book "

    " excellent book! Looks at the roll of the church and questions previous held models. It suggests that celebrating cultural differences aught not to move a church away from God, but rather, align more with God by living the message of The Good Samaritan. "
