Review

God is in the process of restoring Kingdom mentality to the church, and those who get it willmove under the blessed order of God s government. This book is both an indication of this process and a clarification of the strategic issue of honor as it relates to how Christians work together in church. Chapter 2, entitled The Funnel From Heaven, is an absolute must-read for those who not only are wondering why the fivefold ministry is not working as we had hoped, but for all who have not seriously considered this vital approach to church life. Danny s contribution toward the Kingdom Church will help us all navigate this adventure of Kingdom life together. ---Jack Taylor, President, Dimensions Ministries

In this book, Culture of Honor, Danny Silk unearths the ancient foundations of the Kingdom of God. With great wisdom and insight he examines and explains the fundamental building blocks of a supernatural society and constructs the framework for a powerful Christian life. This is more than a book; it is a manifesto of reformation, destined to become a classic that will be a reference for generations to come. Culture of Honor is a must-read for every serious believer. It is essential that this book find its way into every seminary in America! ---Kris Vallotton, Senior Associate Leader of Bethel Church

Culture of Honour by Danny Silk - Some Critical Reflections

Some preliminary words. First, let me say that I am most grateful to God for what Bethel is and does, truly. Second, I mostly enjoyed reading this book and did indeed learn from Silk. I agreed with much of its contents and particularly liked the pastoral approach to conflict resolution and confrontation. But, third, there were also some things that caused concern. At the outset let me say that my criticism is not meant to be negative but constructive. Karl Barth said the function of theology is to keep the church's proclamation honest. I think this is related to the injunction in 1 Thessalonians 5:21 - "Test everything. Hold on to the good." This is especially important when any person or movement attains significant popularity such that enthusiastic followers are in danger of uncritically drinking in all that is being taught. So, it is in that spirit that I write some critical reflections.

1. I found the general tone of the book to be concerning. I find Silk often adopts a `straw man' approach in this book which basically says: "This is what everyone else thinks. This is what we at Bethel do. We are right. Everyone else is wrong." Mostly, this approach is simply annoying. In general, I agree with how Bethel `do things', but, based on my limited experience, I disagree that most other people don't operate this way.

2. I found Silk's tone towards both pastors and teachers to be annoying, disrespectful, and ironically, dishonouring. This is the negative side of Silk's constructive proposal, which I will get to in point 3.
"Pastors emerge as a long term leader when all the hope of rescue is gone. People gather around a leader they believe will tend to their particular needs.

I first went to Bethel, Redding in 2007. The conference was great, the healings were remarkable but I had a couple of other takeaways. The biggest was the culture of honor.

As a pastor of a Vineyard church, I have loved Bethel's clarion call to get back to our basics - signs wonders and the demonstration of the Kingdom. Seeing how crucial the culture is to sustaining this has been so helpful. This book and the teachings are all about our character. How we deal with loving our neighbor as ourselves.

I have listened to everything Danny teaches about this and it has still left me wanting more. Perhaps I am looking for a list of 'to-do's', a check list of making sure I am doing this OK. Perhaps looking for rules in a culture of relationships. This book helps enormously, It helps me understand more and helps me communicate it more. Above all of that, it helps me be changed.

Don't just buy one copy, buy it for everyone you know.

Whilst it has some good points I found it very misleading concerning leadership in churches with an overly critical view on the term Pastor. I also found a number of misleading interpretations of scripture such as in 1 Cor.12:28 that gives a list of ministry giftings as opposed to it being the framework for every local church. All of this lies at the heart of the foundational premise this book is written on. Hence, those that endorse the tenor of this book must also believe in the view that is espoused herein. I found some of the comments towards churches less than displaying a culture of honor, of which I believe to be something Christ wants us to express towards one another. Hey, but then that's my point of view.

It is time for our Churches to re-align with the government and culture of Heaven. As we do this we will see a flow of Heaven that floods the Earth 'as the waters cover the sea'. This book clearly outlines the culture to sustain revival and what it takes to embrace it. Read this book if you want to see Heaven on Earth but beware that you may be challenged in the way you view modern 'church' and your role in it.

The final chapter 'Revolution to Reformation to Transformation' was the best for me in both summarising the purpose of the book and igniting a flame within me to see Jesus get what He paid for in the Earth....NOW.

I hate to rain on this overwhelmingly positive parade of reviews, but someone has to say it.

We used this as a study book for our home group. At first, I thought I was seeing things, but the further I read, the worse it got. There are some very good points in this book. The many reviews should show you that (the "ice cream"), but there are also some very, very bad things in this book (the "rocks"). I can only highlight a few.

For me, the biggest mistake is Silk's effort to try to replace the current church hierarchy of a pastor down pyramid organization with an apostle down pyramid organization. I make this point because he hammers it from start to finish. This is one of his main points of the entire book. He begins his blueprint with 1 Cor. 12:28 (NASB) which says, "And God has appointed in the church, first apostles, second prophets, third teachers, then miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, administrations, various kinds of tongues." The question is, does "first" refer to priority or to chronology? If priority, then Silk is on the mark.

Let's see how that works out. Silk outlines the office of apostle, then prophet, then teacher. So far so good. Then the model begins to break down and Silk ignores the rest of the list. Here's what the full hierarchy of authority looks like with Silk's interpretation:

1. Apostles
2. Prophets
3. Teachers
4. (workers of) Miracles
5. (Those with) Gifts of healings
6. Helps (helpers)
7. Administrations
8. Various kinds of tongues

Helpers with more authority than administrators? Where are the pastors? Where are the elders? Nowhere to be seen. This clearly isn't a list of hierarchy within the church, but rather a chronology. Who establishes new churches? Apostles do.
