Plenty of contemporary church planting metaphors,

This review is from: Church Zero: Raising 1st Century Churches out of the Ashes of the 21st Century Church (Kindle Edition)
This is a good book, strangely an American talking about his experiences of church planting in Wales. Worthwhile in that he calls for a biblical understanding of the five fold ministries expressed in some contemporary language - it probably will date quite quickly. That said I loved the comparison of Jesus with the Halo Master Chief (a 7 foot cyborg). Whilst nothing was new in the book, you can tell he's shouting at the neo-conservative crowd in shaking their understanding of the apostolic. Probably good to read alongside Dave Devonish's book on the subject, as that sees Apostles more like Fathers than Church Planters. It also merciful just because says the thing once unlike many Christian books these days which have one idea in chapter one and repeat in each of the subsequent 12 chapters.
