A radical call to reform, Church Zero is a punk-rock approach to the pressing issue of gaining ground as rapidly as the early church.
With a fresh perspective forged in the dirty trenches of international post-Christian societies, Peyton Jones pulls no punches as he brings this message to the American Church: We have lost our way.
The church is losing ground fast: losing the generation under age 30 and drawing few nonbelievers toward Christ.
Christ gave us a leadership model for commando outreach, and the church has ignored it for too long. Will we continue down the path of self-preservation, defending our stalled church structures? Or will we follow the blueprint Jesus lays out?
Church Zero challenges readers to once again become a radical, dangerous people who cannot be ignored. Its time to break out!
