There was a time when neighbors knew each other’s names, when small children and the old and infirm alike had more than their families looking out for them. There was a time when our neighborhoods were our closest communities.

No more. Neighborhoods have become the place where nobody knows your name. Into this neighborhood crisis the words of Jesus still ring true: Second only to the command to love God is the command to “love your neighbor as yourself.”

In Next Door as It Is in Heaven, Lance Ford and Brad Brisco offer first principles and best practices to make our neighborhoods into places where compassion and care are once again part of the culture, where good news is once again more than words, and where the love of God can be once again rooted and established.

"When our understanding of mission is “somewhere else,” the great commission feels out of reach. We’re left wondering where we have to go to make a difference in the world. We miss the fact that God sends us to the lives we already have, to the places and spaces we regularly inhabit.  What could it look like to see our ordinary lives through the fresh lenses of kingdom possibilities? In this engaging and practical resource, Ford and Brisco train us to live and love like everyday missionaries in our here and now, that we might see God’s life and transformation next door as it is in heaven."
---JO SAXTON. Board chair of 3DMovements and author of More Than Enchanting
