Christianity is a surprising religion. It has changed the world in remarkable ways throughout history simply through Christians living out their faith. More recently, we’ve become afraid of a habituated Christianity, thinking that routines will rob our faith of its vitality. The net effect is that we’ve replaced the habits that surprise the world with habits that mimic the world—and both we and the world suffer for it.

Integrating the five habits in the BELLS model—Bless others, Eat together, Listen to the Spirit, Learn Christ, and understand yourself as Sent by God into others’ lives—will help you spread the gospel organically, graciously, and surprisingly.

Michael Frost, a world-renowned expert on evangelism and discipleship, makes evangelism a lifestyle that is fulfilling, exciting, effective, and easy to live out!

Michael Frost has done it again, as he continues to raise the temperature for missional living. In Surprise the
World: The Five Habits of Highly Missional People, Frost gives us a memorable strategy that we each can put into
practice every day. You’ll want to get multiple copies to share with your team to ensure that each one of us is
prepared to live on mission to help even more people find their way back to God.
          DAVE FERGUSON, Lead pastor of Community Christian Church

Michael Frost’s insights have made him a leading voice in the missional church movement. The habits commended in Surprise the World will only cement Michael’s place as an original thinker who envisions and serves those of us who are pastors and leaders in churches. I will enthusiastically commend this book to the churches for whom I am bishop, and I will make use of it to train Holy Trinity Church, where I am pastor.
          BISHOP TODD HUNTER, The Anglican Church in North America

A core part of the gospel is that Jesus came from the comfort of heaven to a dark and broken world in order to rescue humankind. If we’re to see another awakening in America, Christ followers will need to be intentional about obeying the Great Commission to “go and make disciples.” In Surprise the World, Michael Frost does an excellent job of explaining how to intentionally establish habits to share God’s love with the people around us.
