Publisher's Description

A city set on a hill, inescapably visible. A lit lamp brilliantly illuminating the darkest room. With compelling metaphors, Jesus described the church and its impact on the world. And indeed, filled with the Holy Spirit, the early church demonstrated a spiritual energy and depth that transformed the surrounding culture. Don’t let your church settle for less! Using bridges as a metaphor for “irresistible influence”--or i2, as he calls it--Robert Lewis shows how your church can become a strong, well-traveled link between heaven and earth in your community. In this engaging and uplifting book, Lewis tells the stories and shares the experiences and lessons of Fellowship Bible Church to show * what it will take to reconnect your church with your community * the how-to’s of “incarnational bridge building” * true stories of i2 in action * how to expand the i2 effort through new partnerships and adventures * requirements of the church in the 21st century Discover how the power of incarnational bridge-building can impact your church and your community at the annual Church of Irresistible Influence conference. For information, contact Fellowship Associates: www.fellowshipassociates.com; phone (501) 975-5050.

    Lewis's book is beyond doubt a good read, it will inspire you with is plain language honest truth assessment of the church's performance in the dynamic of building community but don't expect to find too many pragmatic answers here though.

    The author is a pastor with a defined gift of leadership and administration. The premise of the book is simple- the church must become involved in the community to be relevant. Social activism is the new hot button in the church. The book's failure is in clearly showing how the average small church pastor can put legs to it.

    Kudos! If we in the church do not learn to "build bridges" to those who do not know Christ, how will they hear of Him! Dr. Lewis does an exceptional job of challenging believers to become spiritual architects...building relational bridges. Such a philosophy is so radical, it's actually Biblical!
