This review is from: The Permanent Revolution: Apostolic Imagination and Practice for the 21st Century Church (Jossey-Bass Leadership Network Series) (Hardcover)
A very very good book. Accessible and inspirational. This clears away the clutter around Apostles today. I have "grown up in an Apostolic movement of churches". The truth is that deep down these Apostles looked, spoke, and acted more like Episkipos Bishops or big cheese pastors. None of them in my time had personally planted a church. Some had crossed culture but quickly got back on the plane again. In fact as I looked in they seemed to spend all their time with leaders or conferences or fire fighting in existing churches.
This book sorts out the clutter, defines the terms, and helps to bring clarity to what is the greatest need to missional movements in the world, leadership that protects DNA and breaks new ground.
A must read for any missiologist ... My only sad point is that I wish he could write it again for the academic fieldas most missiologists are in the making and universities want things at peer level.
