Product description

From the Inside Flap

The Permanent Revolution

The Permanent Revolution is an original work of theological re–imagination and re–construction that draws from biblical studies, theology, organizational theory, leadership studies, and key social sciences. The book elaborates on the apostolic role rooted in the five–fold ministry from Ephesians 4 (apostles, prophets, evangelists, shepherds, and teachers), and its significance for the missional movement.

Throughout the book, the authors propose a revolutionary missional ecclesiology that is shaped by the New Testament account of apostolic imagination, ministry, and strategy. The aim is to reclaim the ministry by which the church is to remain centered on its calling to be the instrument of God′s mission, and that everything it is and does ought to relate to and demonstrate that calling. To (re)capture the practice of apostolicity, the authors explore how the apostolic ministry facilitates ongoing renewal in the life of the church and focus on leadership in relation to missional innovation and entrepreneurship. They examine the nature of organization as reframed through the lens of apostolic ministry and explore how apostolic leadership provides new and missionally creative ways forward.

The Permanent Revolution is filled with challenging concepts and is replete with innovative ideas. Rather than providing a prescriptive model for leadership, it offers spiritual prods and suggestive thought experiments that are designed to stimulate imagination as well as action. If faithful leaders are to take up the work of ministry as laid out in the New Testament, this book offers a significant pathway to help equip them to better fulfill their mission.

From the Back Cover

Praise for the permanent revolution

"How can the church in the West reimagine itself after 1700 years of living within Christendom? Alan Hirsch and Tim Catchim address reestablishing the building blocks of the five–dimensional ministries of apostle, prophet, evangelist, shepherd, and teacher. While a number of books have addressed this radical challenge, none have done so with such depth, comprehensiveness, scholarly engagement, and prophetic forthrightness. It could provide the urgently needed catalyst for the revitalization of a tired and entrenched church."
Eddie Gibbs, senior professor, School of Intercultural Studies, Fuller Theological Seminary

"At a time when being ′apostolic′ has great appeal, this book is a biblical reality check. Alan Hirsch, along with Tim Catchim, brings his trademark skill of integrating theological, organizational, and sociological insights, as well as his good–natured love of the gospel and God′s people. This is sure to become a standard text in the field of church leadership studies."
Michael Frost, author, The Road to Missional and The Shaping of Things to Come

"This book, written by one of the foremost missional thinkers of our day, addresses what I believe to be the most necessary and neglected of subjects the equipping gifts of Ephesians 4:11. It opens the Pandora′s box of missional inquiry so the rest of us can try and get our minds on a subject of wide consequence that will not likely settle back down."
Neil Cole, founder, Church Multiplication Associates; author, Organic Church, Church 3.0, and Journeys to Significance

"Church leaders are increasingly aware that the big shift for us is to move from managing an institution to leading a movement. Our learning curve is steep. We need help in reimagining and redesigning our leadership beliefs and practices. This volume helps us do exactly that."
Reggie McNeal, author, The Present Future, Missional Renaissance, and Missional Communities
