How the Church can recover her original, apostolic ways and become a high-impact Jesus movement again in the West.
The church is on the verge of massive, category shifting, change. Contemporary church growth, despite its many blessings, has failed to stem the decline of Christianity in the West, and we are now facing the fact that more of the same will not produce different results.
We are already seeing this new form of the church emerge in our day--an apostolic, reproducing Movement that's driven by a desire to see Biblical Christianity reestablished. Alan Hirsch and Dave Ferguson call this the apostolic movement because it's more resonant with the form of church that we witness in the New Testament and in the great missional movements of history.
And we are on the verge of a new apostolic movement...
In this book, Christian thought-leaders Hirsch and Ferguson share a rich array of theology, theory, and best practices, along with inspiring stories about leaders who have rightly diagnosed their churches' failure to embrace a biblical model of mission and have moved toward a fuller expression of the gospel.
