The Art of Neighbouring; 

Jay Pathak & Dave Runyon                                     9/10;

This book is deeply practical, but not deeply theological. It is more like walking 20 minutes 3x weekly rather than running the Tuff Mudder. It's power is in how it brings people into active, and positive neighbouring.
