Here he is on the Internet: Oh, how times have changed! Today the...internet is, at its core, an invitation to talk back. It has encouraged and fostered the voice and opinion of every person, however much that voice may contradict the status quo. This interactive forum has given post-modern culture the freedom and right to reflect upon the stories they've been told and then create their own version of the story, which becomes their sacred truth. The very nature of the on-line community has loosened up any and all narratives. Today everyone has been given the right to have his or her own "small story" to the exclusion of anyone's "big story."
The author urges us to get our ministries out of our church buildings and into the culture. Sadly, he says, most churches lack the vision narrative to do this. Read this excerpt: Yet, mobile ministries that move beyond the confines of a "one building" or "one campus" church are, first, concerned with the missing ones and attempting to minister to people all over their city. People with vision live with a sense of expectancy! Precisely. And that's why this book will resonate with so many who are frustrated that their church leaders "don't get it".
A highlight is a series of interviews with prominent Christians, including some leaders of the emerging church movement. This book is a timely and provocative call to reconnect the church with the community. I commend it highly.
