VOLUME 2 - Taking Flight
"Taking Flight” lives up to its title! The collaborative nature of this project gives witness to the power and creativity of doing more in Christ-centered community rather than futile discursive matches. When grounded in Christ, it is possible to soar in hope that men and women working and serving together can be reconciling forces in a world that desperately needs our full attention and contributions. Thoroughly enjoyed reading it!
- Dr. MaryKate Morse, author of Making Room for Leadership and professor at George Fox University
"Wow. I found "Taking Flight" to be a thoroughly captivating book from the first page. Thoughtful and provoking. Relevant but never reactionary as readers might expect. Full of Scriptural precedents and historical background to these changes happening around us while offering prophetic insight as to what's coming up next. So many issues of great importance and all of them dealt with fairly and passionately. Thanks for a memorable Friday afternoon."
- Andrew Jones, The Boaz Project, tallskinnykiwi.com
"Taking Fight" is an important project that brings together a rich array of diverse voices to discuss the issues facing women in our world today. It is refreshing and challenging to read a book like this that provides strong theological groundings, historical perspectives and examples from today's world that are both instructive and insightful. I would highly recommend this book to any seeker after truth and freedom.

VOLUME I - Voices of the Virtual World
"The hive-mind of Christianity speaks! Voices brings news of the future. Uttered like a prayer retrieved from the year 2030, spoken in a new tongue, a new form. Listen!"
- Kevin Kelly, co-founder / executive editor Wired Magazine
“The Wikiklesia Project has garnered some of the savviest writers and bloggers around in a daring attempt to radically democratize knowledge—and in the process unleash theological reflection where it matters most: in the public sphere. This is not just some new way to self publish; it is a new and exciting form of collaborative theologizing on critical topics that concern us all. Welcome to your future.”
- Alan Hirsch, author of The Forgotten Ways as well as The Shaping of Things To Come (with Mike Frost) and Founding Director of Forge Mission Training Network
"Traditionally, Christian media has been about fifteen years behind technology, but the Wikiklesia Project is different. These 21st century disciples are digital, online, and innovative — changing the way people of faith connect with a mobile generation — and it's making a significant impact in the culture."
- Phil Cooke, Media Consultant and Founder, Cooke Pictures
"Keep your ear to the ground! Voices offers signals of change from the church of the future — adaptive, wired, and engaged in global conversations."
- Dr. Jay Gary, Foresight @ Regent University
