Mark Barnes is unhappy with the modern church and wants to establish new churches based on raw passion for Jesus Christ. He draws on Bible references and dozens of modern authors to build an argument that most modern churches have had their lampstand removed and operate as Christian Clubs without the blessing of Christ. Mark argues that it is time for churches to undertake radical change. Mark dissects the modern church and rips it pieces, bit-by-bit. But, Mark doesn’t stop there. He offers practical advice on how churches should change and what they should do to regain their lampstand. Mark offers detailed steps on how Spirit-filled Christians can start their own churches from scratch.

About the Author
I am a semi-retired 34 year veteran of the Tasmania and Queensland Police. I was born in 1960. I became a Christian as a teenager but soon drifted away. But God used the pressures of life to bring me back to worship of Christ in a big way at age 47. Therefore, I understand what it takes to be a devoted, progressive Christian, as compared to being 'half-a-Christian' that I was as a teenager. And that was the motivation behind my first book: How to be a Christian: A Beginner's Guide. The book is designed to motivate Christians to higher levels of devotion to Christ, and the wonderful blessings that go with that. I hope you enjoy the conversational style of writing in my book. Keep an eye out for my follow-up book about resurrecting the church from its current malaise.
