A radical call for reform from an evangelist with an attitude! Jones's punk-rock approach---and heart for evangelism---were forged in the trenches of international post-Christian societies. Now he pulls no punches as he warns the American church "We have lost our way," and offers a leadership model for "commando outreach" targeting the under-30 generation.
Unabridged audio CD; 5 CDs; narrated by Peyton Jones.
It's time to start over from zero. What happened to the Western church? Why are we losing the generation under thirty and reaching so few nonbelievers? In Church Zero, Peyton Jones examines one of our biggest problems: squeezing our leaders into a mold that cuts their hair and drains away their commando strength. Scripture lays out a leadership model that worked explosively in the first century. When properly understood, Christs model can help your church live the way it was meant to live, truly making a difference in your community. Church Zero gives the blueprints for how the Western church might start rebuilding from the ground up. What would tomorrow look like if we had to restart from a biblical ground zero? Church Zero will help us once again become a radical, dangerous people who cannot be ignored.
