A fresh, new exploration of who God is and what God wants for creation A young pastor introduces us to a God who delights in breaking through boundaries, loves to pop up in unexpected places, and favors the outsider over the institutional insider. Written for anyone longing for a more generative and loving God, this book offers a new paradigm through which faith can be understood. This boundary-breaking God engages life at every corner-social, economical, political, intellectual, ecological. Offers a refreshing view of God that is creative and expansive. Written by the popular pastor of Journey Community Church in Dallas, this fresh vision of who God can be is enlivened by winsome personal stories and anecdotes. Seeing God's story as a story of boundary breaking opens our imaginations and compels Christians to live as people of hopeful purpose who attempt to change the world for the better. Opens up the Christian "good news" for those who are tired of the same old, same old

Praise for the Boundary- breaking God "I am more than grateful for this book by Danielle Shroyer. It is not only true, it is also beautiful to live with God's promise in the heart and God's enlarging horizon before your eyes. The Boundary-Breaking God is full of memorable stories and quotable sentences, going with us as faithful companions."—Jürgen Moltmann, professor of systematic theology, emeritus, University of Tübingen; author, Theology of Hope and The Crucified God "Danielle Shroyer loves the stories of scripture and writes with a unique combination of wonder and theological vigor, seamlessly integrating biblical narrative with contemporary theological inquiry. . . . For those newly curious about the Bible, this book provides a clear, gentle, and substantive introduction. For those too familiar and tired, this book offers a fresh and engaging invitation to re-imagine!" —Mark Scandrette, author, Soul Graffiti "In a lively and engaging style [Danielle Shroyer] invites readers to enter into the story of the boundary-breaking God and experience the liberation, reconciliation, and call to mission announced in the Gospel of Jesus Christ in a way that is fresh and compelling."—John R. Franke, Clemens Professor of Missional Theology, Biblical Seminary; author, Manifold Witness: The Plurality of Truth
