6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Adrian Warnock on 24 July 2011
Format: Paperback
When Paul says there are not many fathers, I don't believe he was making a complaint, but was describing a reality. There have never been many true fathers in the faith. But those rare gifts that God gives to the church to raise up, send out and care for other leaders are vital. It is crucial that we learn how to recognize them and receive their input. This book will therefore be of great benefit to church leaders who know they need some kind of help from outside their local church, to apostolic teams, and to anyone who wants to understand a different way for churches to relate together.

David Devenish skilfully portrays an alternative to both rigid denominational structures and rugged individualism. Learn from the wisdom of a key leader within Newfrontiers who has dared to believe that the New Testament model of how to plant and lead churches can and should be followed today. Full of practical wisdom this book could leave you hungry for true apostolic Christianity and dissatisfied with modern pale imitations.

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By The Art of Steering on 7 April 2012
Format: Paperback
This latest offering is much like Devenish's other writings - packed full of well-considered material ideal for the serious lay reader who wants to explore an area of Christian practice. His assessment of the role of the apostle today is detailed and includes a good mix of Biblical material with personal anecdotes from his extensive experience.

Chapters include a defence of the proposition that the apostolic role continues in today's church, details of the foundations which apostles are to lay in the churches they serve and an interesting discussion of the intricacies of contextualisation. A final chapter dealing with `common questions' rounds up this book well.

My feelings were mixed about this book. I don't agree with all that it teaches and do feel that it is very clearly written with an agenda: namely, to be an exposition and defence of the newfrontiers churches' stance on apostleship. I also found the style a little too dense at times to be easily readable. However, Devenish's material is well-researched and thought through; he engages with some scholarship and his work will be a helpful addition to current thinking on apostleship.

Takes account of the various uses and views of the term apostle in recent years, and lays out a clear and viable description of a role which is Biblical and needed.

Great insight about the roles of a real apostle and the Godly ministry of fathering churches and leaders in the congregation

Finally, clarity on the apostolic! 22 Nov 2011
By Tom A. Maus - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
David Devenish has not restricted himself to going along with popular opinion on the subject of apostles. Instead, he has based his teaching squarely on the biblical pattern and expounded on it with refreshing clarity. His real life experience was an added touch illustrating this fathering gift in action today. I particularly enjoyed the chapters dealing with the essentials of apostolic and prophetic foundations. Oh how our churches and the nations would benefit from relating to the proper relationship of Apostles as Fathering Leaders.
