Description
 

The statistics are sobering. Frustrated church members across Europe and North America are leaving their congregations. Why? Floyd McClung believes that God is realigning the church that he wants to use peoples frustration to motivate them toward change.

The kind of change McClung envisions may surprise you. It involves a valley of dry bones ready for use ready to become an army but only after they are prophesied over. The dry bones are the poor, the rebellious, the marginalized of society, the young, the uneducated. They carry wounds, have been abused, suffer from AIDS, are widows and single parents. They are waiting for someone to believe in them, uphold them in community, and send them out in the service of God.

In this thought-provoking, timely book, McClung presents five principles of leadership, church, and mission sure to challenge all to become a radical community of Jesus followers:

  • Simple church
  • Courageous leadership
  • Focused obedience
  • Apostolic passion
  • Disciple making

Neil Cole, Author

This is a powerful book, a timely books, a necessary book, a book for this generation! In a world where too many churches have too often become more like a prison than a healing community, McClung sees the church as it can be, should be, must be.

Dr. David Garrison, Missionary Author

US film director Woody Allen once said, Ninety percent of life is about showing up. Ninety percent of church planting is about showing up being out and among a lost and hurting world where Jesus already is at home. In this book, Floyd challenges us to rethink all our highly developed strategies and recapture the apostolic heart of God. Without that heart, everything else is a clanging cymbal.

Jim Yost, Missionary and Church Planter, Indonesia
