Today I spoke at Biblical Seminary for the installation of John R. Franke as the Lester and Kay Clemens Professor of Missional Theology.  Gary and I will be discussing the challenges and opportunities the church faces in the Suburbs.  

In my talk I promised that I would post some resources for further reading here on my blog. So, here it is.  

This is a link to the paper that I wrote that started this whole thing for me. 


  • Al Hsu has put together a fantastic reading list here
  • Tom Sine’s new book “The New Conspirators” is a great companion to this conversation.
