Marty Troyer is a husband, father, pastor and writer in Houston, Texas, where he's served at Houston Mennonite Church since 2008. He loves preaching and working to make God's kingdom come "on earth as it is in heaven." His blog, The Peace Pastor, which emphasizes a gospel-centered Jesus ethic, has been hosted by the Houston Chronicle for more than two years. Troyer's blog has led him to countless encounters across the city and nation about what it means to take Jesus' call to peace seriously.
"The Gospel Next Door is an important read for everyone who takes Jesus' teachings seriously. Troyer is a trailblazer, and this book contains practical examples of how believers can make an impact in their communities. Implement the principles in this book and start living out the kingdom here and now!" -- (03/03/2016) "Troyer's book is much needed and timely. Pastoral and engaging, he makes following the teachings and examples of Jesus so accessible. The Gospel Next Door is a mixture of powerful storytelling, practical discipleship, and a winsome call to be kingdom people who seek the shalom of our cities, our communities, and our churches." -- (03/03/2016) "Marty Troyer has taken on the enormous task of helping us reframe the story we tell about what it means to do the work of the kingdom of God. He does that by thoughtfully examining the Scripture in the context of the mission field of Houston and by casting the story as both personal and community transformation. He does that with a pastor's heart and a prophet's urgency. And he does it as a wise, thoughtful participant in what God is doing in one of our nation's great cities. I highly commend The Gospel Next Door to you." -- (03/03/2016) "The world God loves, the one Jesus died for, is right under your nose, and you won't see it the same way after reading this book." -- (03/03/2016) "'Love God and love your neighbor' was Jesus' grand Scripture summary. Marty Troyer paints a picture of what loving God as loving your neighbor can actually look like in the everyday stuff of life. Troyer's important book is part of a large and growing movement of Christians rediscovering the practices of 'local-church.' This book points toward collaboration more than competition, and discovering God's Shalomic dream for your place and its people more than pursuing your own vision. Be careful, The Gospel Next Door may mess with your plans because it'll invite you to listen deeply, to join humbly, and to learn to love your real neighbor and the neighborhood within which God has placed you." -- (05/17/2016) "Troyer's The Gospel Next Door is a much needed work for the church, because it challenges us to be missional in our own backyards. This work gives believers a blueprint for how the gospel of justice can change not only our local communities but our walk with Yahshua through experiences of radical love." -- (03/03/2016) "The Gospel Next Door shows us how we can be part of God's transformational work right where we are, every day. This is a powerful book with life-changing lessons. Read it, and watch the gospel come alive." -- (03/03/2016)
