1 review about Transformation

Thought-provoking book on church growth

  • Jan 30, 2011
"Transformation" is targeted at pastors to encourage them to create a church culture focused on transformation that impacts "lives, churches, and the world." It's easy to understand and has some good points (which I've also read in other books). It also has a few points that I haven't heard before, especially regarding church planting. I'd recommend this book to pastors more interested in seeing an increase in transformed lives than in the purely numerical growth of their church.

The various chapters were about: everyone is a missionary (through their "normal" work); transformation starts on the inside and works out; transformation comes about through the following relationships: you & God, you & a Christian community, and you reaching the world through your job.

How the church can impact the non-Christian community around them: have members live Christianity as a lifestyle (living dependent on & "tuned in" to God); affect both local and world-wide communities; plant new churches with the intent that those churches will also plant new churches; work with other churches; and support diversity within the church (so everyone is using their strengths to complete kingdom work).

Sounds like a good book for pastors or for those that want to understand how Christianity should extend outside church walls. I would especially like the chapter about how transformation starts on the inside and then works its way out. Powerful truth.

Yup. The chapter on personal transformation (inside out) was one of my favorites in the book, too. :)
