What the church should look like.
Brandon challenges believers to take serious what Christ takes serious... serving the least. This book isn't about 10 easy steps to church growth and it's not a "recipe for success" in getting people through your doors. Rather, it is a challenge to substantiate the claims that we make as Christ-followers by living them. He shows us, through his own church's story (ANC), what community looks like when people are the biggest priority, not the offering plate or size of your lobby. My hope is that church leaders all over will read this book and implement it's principles. Brandon doesn't claim to have all the answers and his humble approach in challenging us to live differently is what gives this book it's appeal. Instead of another overly calculated strategic "catch-all" for ministry implementation we get a "barefoot" version of what Christ's church could and should look like in America. Buy this book, read it, and do it.

A challenging read. The author reminds us as followers of Jesus
A challenging read. The author reminds us as followers of Jesus to DO, to ACT. Take your faith and be a light to the world around you. Show love and benevolence. This book gives some ideas and suggestions on how to do that in church as a group and individually.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Great Book on How the Church will be revelant in the future
Honest look at what it means to be a church today. Not preachy. Understands how hard it is for an established church to move from tradition to meeting people where they are and helping in our communities. Lots of good ideas. So good, we bought extra copies for key people in our church.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
