the gospel next door
The Gospel Next Door: Following Jesus Right Where You Are is former HMC Pastor Marty Troyer's first book. With stories from the city of Houston, Texas, Troyer introduces a theology of place that empowers us to truly see the work of God where we live, work, and play.
As Christians, we pray for God’s kingdom to come “on earth as it in heaven.” But what does that even mean? Would we recognize God’s kingdom if it moved in next door?
Learn to see God’s work in your neighborhood, city, and the world—and learn how to join it. The Gospel Next Door unpacks the gospel through the lenses of following Jesus, making peace, and overcoming injustice.
Those seeking to connect more deeply with the world that God so loved will find compelling stories and practical ideas for healing brokenness and imagining new life. Start living out the kingdom of God here and now.
