In Relentless, Tom Rawls gives us a compelling vision of the majestic force Christ's church might become, if she is willing to re-align herself with the revolutionary principles of the New Testament. He artfully and honestly combines his firsthand experience of re-firing the heart of an urban church, with sound biblical ecclesiology. His call for leadership over management and spiritual potency over fatalistic defeatism, must not fall on deaf ears if the
Western church is to once more become Christ's `city on a hill'.

In John chapter one, the Bible says that the Word became flesh and dwelt amongst us. This is a book about just that - the Word infesting a man who has become relentless in his pursuit of changing the world for Christ. 'Relentless' has always been the tattoo etched into the heart of Tom Rawls. In the Eighties he broke tradition and touched a youth culture for Jesus, in the Nineties he touched the world's underclass, and this century he is touching the Western world for Jesus. He has never relinquished, never quit, never backed down and never stopped. This book is infectious. You may become what you read.

“I have known Tom and Denise for many years, probably too many! Tom has a big heart for the church and this is reflected in his book “Relentless” The title more aptly describes Tom. He is relentless in his pursuit of vision and his passion for the church is all pervading. Relentless is a timely book about THE church but also about A church. Pastors, leaders, volunteers and any student of the church will enjoy the story of the church, but especially one church, on its journey of reshaping, change, and, ultimately, growth. Challenging, witty, engaging and provoking, a must read for all.”
