Product Description

World-renowned pollster George Barna has the numbers, and they indicate a revolution is already taking place within the Church - one that will impact every believer in America. Committed, born-again Christians are exiting the established church in massive numbers. Why are they leaving? Where are they going? And what does this mean for the future of the Church? Using years' worth of research data, and adhering to an unwavering biblical perspective, Barna predicts how this revolution will impact the organized church, how Christ's body of believers should react, and how individuals who are considering leaving (or those who have already left) can respond. For leaders working for positive change in the church and for believers struggling to find a spiritual community and worship experience that resonates, Revolution is here. Are you ready?

    I have 15 pages left on this book, and a friend of mine is reading it. Rather than giving if I thought it good or bad, I just want to write some thoughts. There are definitely some frustrations among churches today that institutionalized churches are unable to reach out to non-believers, many of them are spiritually receptive. The voice against church hypocrisy is increasing, and admittedly, we Christ-followers have been more hypocritical than we should have, with the dilemma that we could and should be better. We came too far as to the point where "It's not about what we do, but what God does" seems like a canned excuse than a lofty theological truth.Somewhat, in this light, the emergence of such a movement is understandably natural. I feel not very comfortable to throw away existing churches altogether (It is the body of Christ after all), but it surely casts a light to think if we should be continuing in the current manner. Who Mr. Barna calls "Revolutionaries" might not be necessarily the answer, but thought-provoking definitely.

    A truly revolutionary book! Addresses basic Christianity and how Christ wants us to look to Him for our sufficiency instead of the local church or pastors. This book clearly states our responsibility to bring the Good News to others and to bring glory to God the Father. A strong Bible preaching church should be our ally in this mission. But we must not ever compromise our effectiveness to be the "hands and feet," by expecting the church to do it alone!

    I am one of the "BIG C" that George Barna describes in Revolution. After many years of working in the church in several titles, I just felt that nothing was being accomplished. Same routine week after week. Church members were satisfied to just come and go back home, having done their "good" duty. Many would not participate in ministries, or pray. The "small c" must change by doing a better job in equipping its members to be bold and grateful servants of the Lord in whom they claim as savior. It is time to get serious and cut the activities and programs that are not developing willing and able Christians.

    The value in this book is that it challenges us as the church to think. For me as a Pastor, I wonder if the way our church functions is as the church - little c, or as the Church - big C. Many will read this book and be critical of Barna for his less than diligent exegesis of scripture and for his biased commentary on this "revolution", however, I find value in the things he puts forth. Where I have to part ways with him is at the same junction as some previous reviews and that is that personal christianity must be partnered with a greater corporate Christianity. I would think. I can agree with some of his observations about the local church, but rather than cast it aside, I ask why not a4th response to the "revolution" and that is to reform the church little c into the Church big C. If we are the body, why not challenge the body to act like it? Why give the okay for people to leave it altogether? It may be easier to "be the church", but to me there is great value in returning the church to it's purpose. The first Christians that barna mentions quite a bit lived in community with each other. They had structure and while they may not have met in a "church building" they were hardly individual pious particles that formed multiple low commitment alliances with other believers either. Why not a Revolutionary Church? This book is definitely worth the read if you are not afraid to chew on the unconventional and maybe irresponsible views that Barna floats and extract the valuable morsels.
