Publisher's Description

Dynamic New Teaching from Bestselling Author Ed Silvoso

It's no secret that the church today has lost its influence in culture. But why? With the technology, affluence, and knowledge we have today, why are we less effective than the first-century church--which didn't have social media, fancy buildings, professional pastors, or even religious freedom?

What are we missing?

In these vital, eye-opening pages, bestselling author Ed Silvoso digs into Scripture, unearthing Jesus' true design for his church--his Ekklesia. He shows how the early church was a radical, countercultural force of people who transformed the hostile, pagan places in which they lived. Here Dr. Silvoso shows how we, in the midst of social, economic, political, and moral chaos, can once again become the revolutionary, transformational, life-giving Ekklesia Jesus called us to be.

    Dr. Silvoso shares accounts of numerous miraculous transformations in institutions and cities that will amaze and inspire you to the greatness of your calling. I have been so moved already to begin to implement the 'Adopt Your Street' initiative within my circle of influence. These alone are worth the read!

    If you are looking for excellent teaching and a way to find your place in ministry, this resource will clarify your focus and straighten the course of your efforts! It has given me a new vision for ministry and I thank God that Chosen Books sent this free copy to me for review. (They also encourage an honest review, so don't think I'm just trying to sell you a book. It's one of the best I have ever read and an essential for the church right now. That is what I believe.)

    If you lead a group study, absolutely use this book next. If you don't love it, please let me know and I'll buy your copy from you to share with someone else. That is how much I believe in this word for those who desire to walk in a restored compassion for the world! I do not say this lightly. I believe the teaching within this book is an essential tool for equipping of the saints to transform the world.

    Go out and get the book, and then GO OUT and change the world.

    The church we see today is nothing like that described in Acts. Jesus said the gates of hades would not prevail against the church but that is certainly not what we are seeing today. Why and how can that change?

    Silvoso looked at Scripture and the contemporary church to rediscover the church as Jesus designed it to be. He shares what he has learned about the church as well as a strategy to develop it. He notes that the characteristics of the early church included people devoted to their leaders' teaching, provisions for needs, constant growth, and signs and wonders in the public square.

    Silvoso offers many challenging thoughts, such as how church planting happened, how leaders were developed, the vital role of meals, marketplace ministry, the true meaning of ekklesia, baptizing a nation (including Spirit led social action), and much more.

    I think the greatest impact of this book is that ministry takes place in the marketplace. Believers are trained to do ministry day in and day out. It is not church staff but believers who advance the kingdom of God. The average believers were the ones who influenced society in the early church. Silvoso gives many encouraging examples from his own ministry and that of others how believers are transforming agents. He also gives practical ideas on being such a change agent.

    This book is certainly a welcome challenge to spiritual leaders and lay people. I recommend it to those who want to know how Jesus meant believers to live and minister today. Yes, the strategy includes being immersed in the power of the Holy Spirit. Silvoso provides a good study of the idea. Perhaps it is time to put away anti-charismatic thinking and really get serious about how the church can be a transforming agent today. This book will inspire you and give practical help to get you on your way, whether you are a pastor or a lay person.

    I received a complimentary egalley of this book from the publisher. My comments are an independent and honest review.
