Overview

This book is about vision. More precisely, it is about helping a congregation capture a pastor's vision and struggling through the process of seeing that vision fulfilled. H. Beecher Hicks captures that experience through the image of the Old Testament tabernacle-God's spiritual instrument for leading Moses and the Israelites through their wilderness journey and manifesting his glorious presence among them.

This book arises out of Dr. Hicks's experiences in recent years of coping with the need of his church for a larger facility in the face of opposition from the community surrounding the church.

The book captures and expounds the spiritual qualities required for such changing times. It both teaches and inspires. It shows us how to deal with the ups and downs of defining a vision, confronting change, and dealing with the obstacles that stand in the way, from both inside and outside the church. "The problem with visions," Dr. Hicks writes, "is that they don't come with 'how to' manuals or an 800 number to call for technical support." Yet God shows his faithfulness in many ways, sometimes after grit and grimy work, sometimes through unexplainable miracles.
