But a single person wont lead it.
A single event wont define it.
Our reformation will be a movement of reformers living creatively, compassionately, courageously for the cause of Christ.
This reformation will not be born of a new discovery. It will be the rediscovery of something old, something ancient.
Mark Batterson, Primal
What would your Christianity look like if it was stripped down to the simplest, rawest, purest faith possible? You would have more, not less. You would have the beginning of a new reformationin your generation, your church, your own soul. You would have primal Christianity.
This book is an invitation to become part of a reformation movement. It is an invitation to rediscover the compassion, wonder, curiosity, and energy that turned the world upside down two thousand years ago. It is an invitation to be astonished again.
The book serves the dual purpose of both chronicling his journey and telling his readers the reasons why he believes the way he does. He is very blunt and honest about his beliefs, and presents them in a very readable fashion that encourages both continued reading and thought provocation.
The subject matter, while not particularly revolutionary, is a welcome and refreshing reminder of what Christianity is truly about. It is, at its core, an attempt to shake the modern American church out of its current state of comfort and make it realize that in order to have the effect that the church is supposed to have, it must take some drastic stancesmore aggressive evangelism, a broader worldview, and a stronger legacy for future generations.
The book uses a lot of Christian terminology that may not be understood by all, but this is not a bad thing since the book is specifically directed at those who have been Christians for many years. It is about reclaiming the fire that has been lost, so I would not recommend it to a new believer. However, those who are looking for a book that will encourage them to change their current state of habit-filled living will find here an excellent and thought-provoking text. Jordan A.

"Too many of us are doing life at an unsustainable pace and losing sight of our first love. In his new book, Primal, Mark Batterson invites you to rediscover the reality of Christ and His passions. This book will challenge you, push you, and stretch you. You will walk away righteously aggravated, but catapulted into action."
CRAIG GROESCHEL, senior pastor of LifeChurch.tv
"Mark, Im with you. Its time for believers to be more. Lets hear the voice of God and be that holy, passionate fire that we are called to be. Its the primal way."
