From the pen of Steve Addison we hear the spirit of Roland Allen speaking to a new generation. Addison draws on biblical insights and illustrates them with modern case studies to challenge existing paradigms to return to the New Testament ethos. Fortunately, Addison does more than challenge paradigms; he offers a practical guide to begin implementing this in your community. "If you prefer to enjoy the comfort of your current situation, do not read this book. However, I encourage you to read it, implement the biblical principles and join the growing global community of disciples through whom the Master delights in starting fresh movements of God!
regional leader for Southeast Asia (International Mission Board of the Southern Baptists), CPM trainer and author of T4T: A Discipleship Re-Revolution
In this highly accessible book, my old comrade Steve articulates something of the genius of Jesus' apostolic ministry in founding the movement that claimed his name. Jesus is the prototypal missionary. Therefore not only is his life worthy of moral and spiritual emulation, but his methodology is as well.
author, The Permanent Revolution
In What Jesus Started, Steve Addison traces God's redemptive movements back to their source, Jesus of Nazareth. This is a readable, informative and inspirational resource that should guide the Great Commission community for years to come.
missionary and author of Church Planting Movements
Among all the important writings about Jesus movements available today, this one contributes a strong focus on the patterns shared by both Jesus and Paul in the New Testament and is illustrated by Addison's aptitude for research with helpful examples of what God is doing today around the world. It therefore stands at the heart of what is essential and provides a helpful starting place for us all.
