    The Disruptive Gospel

    As one who prays for many matters and situations I do not often see the answers to, although I know God is working as He promises, I found much encouragement in this book, and encouragement to keep praying! Each chapter ends with a prayer which always helps me clarify my prayers. The need, and this record of what God is doing in many of our world cities is edifying. So often we hear only the downside. I was surprised to find Gothenburg, Sweden included as I had started praying specifically for that city awhile ago when I determined to pray more often for the countries of my heritage. There is so much more in this book including prayer and strategies for reaching our own cities! I recommend it highly. I received this book from Graf-Martin and Baker Books in exchange for an honest review.

    If you only read the headlines and listened to the experts, you would conclude that Christianity is waning and losing its impact. Author Mac Pier wants to counter that perception by declaring that God is at work in the cities of the world. The gospel is on the move and is bearing fruit.

    Understanding this truth and becoming part of a global movement is the theme of Piers book, A Disruptive Gospel: Stories & Strategies for Transforming Your City. The theme of the book is based on a simple conviction: When the gospel takes ahold of your life, it completely disrupts everything. As the author explains in the opening chapter,

    The gospel is the power of God to forgive us and the presence of God to form us into the image of His Son, Jesus.

    The gospel does disrupt our livesit affects our decision about where we live, who we marry, and what kind of work we do. It also disrupts cultures, cities, and civilizations. Jesus is inviting all of us into this yes-or-no encounter.

    Jesus came to not only rescue us but also enlist us to become agents in a gospel movement.

    When the gospel disrupts our lives and penetrates our beings, we become concerned with Gods concernsthe spiritual emptiness of a vast world, the economic deprivation of billions of people, the racial divide of our cities.

    As we study, learn, and live the gospel, our lives should become organized around five matters:

    The Gospel Matters. The truth of God turns irreligious people into fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ.

    Church Unity Matters. Churches uniting across denominational and cultural lines breathe the aroma of belief. Division in the church breeds atheism in the world.

    Cities Matter. The story line of the New Testament is about Jesus going to die in Jerusalem, the religious capital of the world, and Paul going to die in Rome, the political capital of the world.

    Millennial Leadership Matters. Most spiritual movements are started by leaders under the age of twenty-eight. Attracting millennial leaders to the church and keeping them is crucial to the flourishing of the church.

    Movement Matters. Given the exploding needs in the world spiritually, economically, and socially, the status quo is unacceptable. Christianity needs to grow rapidly in difficult places all over the worldparticularly in cities.

    After laying out these convictions in the opening chapter, the author goes on to describe what is taking place in various cities around the worldNew York City, Dallas, London, Singapore, Mumbai, Dubai, and several others. In addition to describing how the gospel is moving forward and disrupting these cities in a good way, the author lays out principles that can be implemented in any city to bring about the same result.

    The books is enlightening and encouraging.

    Disclosure: I received this book free from Baker Books through the Baker Books Bloggers www.bakerbooks.com/bakerbooksbloggers program. The opinions I have expressed are my own, and I was not required to write a positive review.
