We are very excited about the book because we see it as THE foundational issue for a genuinely missional church. In reJesus we ask the following questions: > What ongoing role does Jesus the Messiah play in shaping the ethos and self understanding of the movement that originated in him? > How is the Christian religion informed and shaped by the Jesus that we meet in the Gospels? > How do we assess the continuity required between the life and example of Jesus and the subsequent religion called Christianity? > In how many ways do we domesticate the radical Revolutionary in order to sustain our religion and religiosity? > How can a rediscovery of Jesus renew our discipleship, the Christian community, and the ongoing mission of the church? These questions take us to the core of what the church is all about. Rather than reformation, we call this task 're-founding the church' because it raises the issue of the Church's true Founder or Foundation. This theme is of particular importance at the dawn of the twenty-first century as many attempt to address Christianity's endemic and long trended decline in the West. Endorsement by Leonard Sweet: ReJesus will rock your world--and cause you to reJesus your life, reJesus your church, and reJesus your Bible. Expect 'reJesus' to become a mantra and a mobilization in the revitalization of Christianity in the 21st century.

In a quick two hundred pages, Frost & Hirsch weave together theory, stories, examples, and diagrams that cause you to think, listen, dream, and pray. Above all, they cause you to question the place of Jesus in your ministry. Is Jesus the center of all that you do? Is he the source of mission? Is he the life of your community, or has Jesus been pushed to the margins in favor of other lords, such as religion or Christ-less theology? Having read previous books by both authors, I'm convinced that this book is the most important because it is about the most important topic of all. For those interested in missional church, this book serves as a welcome reminder that apart from Jesus there is no mission nor church. I will be using this book for years to come as we train leaders and church planters for mission.
