Thoughtful, entertaining and a call to ACTION!,
This review is from: Church Zero (Paperback)
ok, first up - Peyton is a friend, but I'll try and make my review as unbiased as possible. . . much like a mum at her 4 year old son's first Christmas play in school. . . .
I'm a church planter and Peyton reflects my great desire that the church rediscovers apostles & prophets rather than just the pastor. He handles this and other situations in a direct and open hearted way, but often with humour, and usually with a movie analogy! As the role of apostle & prophet has been lost to a large extent, we (I) need to start looking out for people with these gifts and making space for them, after all, I read somewhere that we need to be do-ers, not just hearers.
Too many pastors end up burned out. Releasing apostles & prophets is one part of the solution, and equally important is making space for EVERY member of the body of Christ to function in their own unique, God given way.
I highly recommend Peyton's book - be prepared to be challenged, maybe even annoyed, but be open to what God may be saying.
btw, my purchase is not verified by Amazon as I bought it from a local Christian Bookshop. I recommend you do the same :)
