I thoroughly enjoyed Graham Cooke's "A Divine Confrontation." So when I saw his name on this book I was ready to dive in and find out his perspectives on doing church differently in the 21st century. Sadly, the totality of this book is about developing what the authors refer to as a "Third Day" church. The main thrust of this (movement?) centers around conducting worship that has no specific time limit or central direction. While I am all for Christians becoming more involved in worship in a variety of different ways, what Goodell and Cooke seem to propose here is a lengthy (as long as it takes, which I'm sure would NOT work with families with small children!) worship time with everyone involved in prophecy, speaking in tongues, interpretation, praying, singing, etc. Again, there's nothing wrong with allowing the Holy Spirit to move in worship more than we do (most churches tend to "program" the Spirit right out of worship!), but I find it difficult to see very many churches opting for a multi-hour worship that has little oversight and where everyone seems to do whatever strikes them at the time.
