Andrea Schultz5 Stars Out Of 5February 11, 2010Andrea SchultzThe Big Idea is a result of the observation of the team members of the Community Christian Church in Chicago that people are overloaded with so many little ideas that they are too confused and overloaded to implement the Big Idea. They endeavored to implement with the Holy Spirit's leading a plan that would make their church and their weekend services more effective for Gods Kingdom. Chapter 1's title is provocative No More Christians! They share the statistic that 85% of US residents call themselves Christians. Yet their actions are no different than the other 15%. Real change is expected when people are truly following Jesus. Dave explains the difference:I am a Christ follower. I follow Jesus step by step as his Spirit moves me in his community called the church. When Jesus steps, I follow. When Jesus speeds up, I increase my pace. When Jesus slows down, I slow down too. The direction, the speed, and the ultimate destination of my life are determined by keeping in step with Jesus Spirit. Simple. Clear. Not Easy! (p. 29)The purpose of this book is to present a church model the Big Idea - that employs synergy, teamwork, and, most importantly, the guidance and direction of the Holy Spirit. The purpose is to pass along to people the tools that they need to live out the truths of scripture and to accomplish Jesus mission.I was so pleased to see the emphasis on Gods leading and the Holys Spirits direction. So many churches seem to be run by charismatic pastors who have large egos and chart their own course - and build a church that is man-made, with God being an afterthought. I found this books approach to be very creative, innovative, and inspirational. The I appreciated the heart for the lost that is very evident in the team members of this wonderful church. This book was provided to me by Dave Ferguson for review purposes.Reviewed by Andrea Schultz Ponderings by Andrea http://andrealschultz.blogspot.com
