Format: Paperback
A very challenging book - made me think over many important issues. I started by thinking that this was just another 'alternative church' book - but it is so much more. Allan has done his research - his reflections on the effects of Constantine becoming a Christian were very helpful to me - causing me to value again the Biblical model of the church that is given to us in the book of The Acts of the Apostles.

Similarly his insights into the effects of Greek thinking on our approach to learning, as set against the Hebrew method of ' acting our way into new ways of thinking' made me look again at the ways in which Jesus instructed those who wanted to follow him - so that they didin't just rest with the theory. Made me want to read the book of James all over again.

I didin't agree with all of the book - I thought that he is rather confused about how the Ephesians 4 ministries related to the church as a whole at one point - but that did not detract for me in the overall scheme of things.

All in all a very good read - well worth buying and reading twice!

Format: Paperback
Expressing my discontent with the established church systems with their deadness and often with the church members subject to the control exercised by many pastors and church leaders this book is utterly refreshing in its account of seeking to be a "missional church", one that is true to the original call of seeing lives transformed through Jesus, making Him known and then communities of believers built. It is exciting, challenging, tells the truth 'warts and all', but is an essential read for tired and worn out pastors and leaders offering a very real way forward - if you have the courage; as well as refreshing to those concerned with the current malaise of many Western churches. A dangerous book to read if you are content in your rut.

Subversive & challenging, undermines our desire for comfort & security in the Christian life. A must read for anyone serious about following Jesus.

Format: Paperback
An excellent book... probably heading rapidly towards a cult book... not and easy read but underneath the layers of creative grammar and vocabulary lies a vision for the church of the 21st century that could just be the right one.
