This book is quite different than most you will see. It is laid out like it's "sister books" (Tangible Kingdom and Barefoot Church Primers) by having the reader work this out with a community in an 8 week time period.
Each week is broken down day by day:
Day 1: Exploration: This is the day that gives you information on the concepts that will be worked out for the week. This exploration really hits the "head" to challenge you and where you currently are at. Even here, it isn't all about information, but questions to aid you in the understanding
Day 2: Meditation: Focuses on a few scripture verses/passages for the reader to be soaked in. Then questions to aid the reader in applying.
Day 3: Change: Focuses on how the exploration and meditation should change your life. What would your life look like if this change happened? etc. This is the development of the heart phase of understanding a concept to how it now is changing your deep understanding of your soul. Where the heart is affected, real change can happen.
Day 4: Action: As your heart is changed, you should start crying out, "what should I do with this?" Action day puts into practice (the hands and feet) the heart change you are experiencing.
Day 5: Community: This part is beautiful. For too long we've lived out a "personal walk with Jesus" instead of living it out in community.Read more ›
1. Don't get this UNLESS you plan to go through it with at least one other person.
2. Don't get this if you would rather talk about the gospel rather than live it.
3. Don't get this if you if you want to stay comfortably churchy without growing to be comfortably (in the Spirit) missional.
This isn't a book to just sit down and read - it's a book to work through each day over the course of eight weeks. Caesar Kalinowski does an excellent job of giving you a little gospel nugget to think through and reflect on each day. You'll find yourself drawing closer to God and growing in desire to show others what he's like. In short, you and your community will be equipped to make disciples who make disciples. Buy a copy for each of your friends. Work through it together and go make disciples!
