I am a little more than halfway through the new book by CMA Resources’ Neil Cole and Phil Helfer. It’s an incredible writing for those who have begun embracing organic ideals and find themselves involved in more “institutional” churches. This book is a grand call to die to our current ideals of co-dependant leadership and our draw to business-modeled organization of Christ’s bride and it certainly makes some challenging points.
These guys take seriously our need to make bold [and often risky] steps of faith in a culture where we place a high value on protecting our security and trusting in our skill/devices before we even consider God’s interactions in our lives. All in all it’s been a great book to read and I pray that I have God-given convictions about the state of the church today and the courage to go through with them.
