While Frank's book does have some interesting things to say and some very good criticisms, it has one fatal flaw, which I, Rich cannot get over. In all his pronouncements about the headship of Christ and its lack in the institutional church, he seems to deny the sovereignty of Christ in history of the world, let alone the history of the church. He seems to imply that Jesus is looking down from heaven at his wits end with all these church people and what they have done to his movement. Nothing could be further from the truth. Christ is sovereign in all things and he is not taken by surprise at our utter stupidity.
Is Christ leading his church more to the form that Frank advocates? Probably, but it will not come from human hands but from the Spirit. Institutional church, in my opinion is failing not because of its form but because it acknowledges Christ with its lips but denies his power, and his Word. Frank's book is worth reading but God's book is of far surpassing worth. Drink deep from his well then maybe you won't need to read Franks.
