"If you want to know the theological conversation, and if you are tired (as I am) of everybody and her brother shooting up missional rockets that are supposed to solve all our problems (and don't), then Salt, Light, and a City will slow it all down to a genuine conversation with biblical foundations interacting with the major theologians and issues. This is the most important book I have ever read on the church and its mission. Graham Hill has a profound grasp of important theologians and he shows how each theologian contributes to a robust missional ecclesiology."
--Scot McKnight, Julius R. Mantey Professor of New Testament, Northern Seminary
"Graham Hill ranges far and wide in order to construct a viable ecumenical, but distinctly missional, ecclesiology. In so doing, he provides us with a classy, intelligent, and passionate contribution to one of the defining issues of our time."
--Alan Hirsch, Founder of 100Movements

Asian immigration is transforming the Australian church and society. Migration from Asian countries occupies six of the ten largest groups migrating to Australia. While most Australian churches are declining and aging, Asian Australian churches are young and growing. The end of white Australian Christianity is near. The future of the church is Asian.
Sunburnt Country, Sweeping Pains shares the stories of Asian Australian women as they experience inequality, racism, sexism, and stereotypes in ministry and mission. These women also talk about the joy and meaning they find in serving God’s church and world. In this book, Graham Joseph Hill examines 21,987 NCLS surveys, 36 detailed surveys, and 15 in-depth interviews with Asian Australian Christian women. These women share their stories of discrimination and efforts to bring change. They also offer proposals for a more equal, fair, and just Australian church.
Sunburnt Country, Sweeping Pains is essential reading for all who value the voices and stories of women and want to address racism and sexism in church and society. Asian Australian Christian women guide us toward a multiethnic church that values equality and dignity for women and men of all cultures.
These voices show us the future of missional churches in world Christianity. When churches are conformed to Christ they make disciples, heal a broken world, and witness to Jesus and his gospel. Jesus forms us in his image and moves us to be a people of shalom, humility, character, justice, peace, wisdom, prayer, beauty, and witness. The church has had a Reformation but now it needs a Conformation. Hill explores biblical themes and the voices of world Christianity to show that a missional church is conformed to the image of the incarnate, crucified, resurrected, and glorified Christ. Conformity to Christ is the heart of missional ecclesiology and discipleship.
Pandemics, conflicts, and crises have increased suffering, death, and loss worldwide. The growing phenomenon of online interactions by the bereaved with the online presence of their deceased loved ones has recently come to the attention of caring professionals. Many questions emerge. How do we understand and respond to digital memorialization? What do we make of digital identities and continuing bonds? How can we engage with digital bereavement communities? What is the future of digital death and bereavement rituals and practices? How have forms of technospirituality and cybergnosticism emerged? How do counselors and carers respond to advances in the digital afterlife?
Graham Joseph Hill and Desiree Geldenhuys examine existing therapeutic responses to death and bereavement practices and evaluate the efficacy in meeting the needs of mourners in a digital context. Geldenhuys and Hill explore the rising interest in spirituality and the phenomenon of technospirituality, including interest in the afterlife. The authors outline new death and bereavement practices in the digital public sphere. Hill and Geldenhuys offer ways that therapeutic and care practitioners can meet these needs. Finally, the authors develop new proposals for counseling, pastoral, and spiritual carers to help them address the needs of the bereaved.
“The Soul Online covers very timely information related to grief and the digital age and connects current events to historical and recent societal trends. . . . The information presented is examined in a theoretical and scholarly manner and offers recommendations relevant to counseling and pastoral practitioners. I would recommend this book to those who work with grieving individuals and family.”
—Nadine Pelling, Clinical Psychologist and Senior Lecturer in Clinical Psychology and Counseling, University of South Australia
“Sharing our suffering and sorrow and receiving help and care online is a relatively new dynamic and one that Geldenhuys and Hill have diligently and creatively explored. This is an extraordinarily thoughtful and timely book. . . . The Soul Online is indeed an essential contribution to human flourishing! I was encouraged and challenged and immensely enjoyed reading this book. I recommend it to you.”
—Nicholas Marks, CEO, Australian Institute of Family Counselling
“This book is a fascinating and compelling account of new responses to the age-old question ‘How do we respond to human suffering?’ Geldenhuys and Hill explore the emergence of technological rituals and spiritualities through the lens of Christian theology. They offer a vital, urgently needed new framework for spiritual care and counseling in the online world that leads to wholeness of life.”
—Peter Sherlock, Vice-Chancellor, University of Divinity

At the heart of these reflections is the topic of resilience and its role in Christian community, integral mission, and faith-based development work. Offering both theological frameworks and practical tools for the development of resilient communities, this book ignites a biblical passion for integrating justice and proclamation, witness and social concern, evangelism and community transformation. Relentless Love is a powerful reminder of Christ’s calling to join him in his work to bring wholeness, reconciliation, and redemption to the earth.
In this pioneering work, sixteen servants describe the four movements of radical servantship. Servantship is the movement
1.from leadership to radical servantship;
2.from shallowness to dynamic theological reflection;
3.from theories to courageous practices; and
4.from forgetfulness to transforming memory.
Servantship recognizes, in word, thought, and deed, that “whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, and whoever wants to be first must be your slave—just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”
“Servantship, as a collection of essays, has a global appeal for leaders both inside and outside the walls of the church. As Robert Greenleaf unknowingly produced a movement from outside the church that proved transformational for the topic of leadership studies within the church, this new work has the potential to transform leadership studies well beyond the walls of the church by transforming the culture of leadership studies within the church’s walls.”
—Wayne Ballard, Associate Professor of Religion, Carson-Newman University
“Ever since Robert Greenleaf’s pioneering work on servant leadership, there has been a need for a thorough theological exploration of the subject. Graham Hill’s insightful book meets this need in a balanced and thorough way. There are many books on leadership but the servant dimension has often been overlooked. A timely contribution.”
—Martin Robinson, Principal of Springdale College, Birmingham
“Servantship reflects a constructive effort to paint a picture of what following Christ means and what it entails. . . . The result is a sensitively drawn portrait with artfully nuanced strokes that will inspire new ventures of service in imitate Christi. . . . This is a book thoughtful Christians will want to read.”
—Neville Callam, General Secretary of the Baptist World Alliance
“Servantship deserves prime place among recent missional books, offering a powerful corrective to leadership-fixated churches. Combining thoughtful theology, cultural analysis, and practice, its stories and questions humble and inspire. It jolts you to see what’s missing today. From the Australian context, Graham Hill has provided a challenge to the Western church that we dare not ignore.”
—Michael Quicke, Charles Koller Professor of Preaching and Communication, Northern Seminary
“I am excited to recommend this important new work on servanthood and leadership. Graham Hill’s book offers important insights and correctives to all of us and our views of leadership. Together the contributors help move us from the board room, back to the role of the bowl and the towel.
