James Rutz's book "Megashift" is divided into two main sections. In the first half of the book, he documents various medical miracles that are occurring around the world today, including people being raised from the dead by Gods supernatural power. A good helping of photographs is also included, as well as contact information for those interested in following up on the miracle stories. In the second half, he describes the way the church is shifting around the world from a cathedral-type Christianity to a more decentralized grassroots house church-type Christianity. In that sense, the book is "symmetrical" by discussing both the POWER and the PATTERN of what not only seems to be emerging today, but what seems to have been the original intent of Jesus and the apostles for the church. A decent summary is also given of some of the shifts that occurred through church history that caused a switch from the original "house churches" to institutionalized "church houses" and why that is problematic. My main concern about the book was stylistic. While Rutz clearly has a good sense of humour which he generously peppers throughout the book, not every reader will share that same sense of fun and may in fact misinterpret the tone or intent of some of his comments. Overall, however, the book is worth reading and prayerfully considering. Good work Mr. Rutz!
