Greg4 Stars Out Of 5Almost thereFebruary 6, 2019GregQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 4Reading Chan's book has opened up a new look as to what is happening today. The book picks out things wrong with the church, which is easy to do these days. To me, getting back to the home is like getting to read the Bible. It is essential. It is paramount to true Christianity, as Christ is the one who exemplified meeting at home. Christ knowing scriptures and meeting people is what he did. It is what we need to do.
Chan's example of gangs is the best. Why leave a 24/7 group for a Sunday morning, no commitment group? Where is this Sunday morning example in scripture, anyway?
This is an easy read with easy solutions. Doing Christianity is another matter. It will take you out of your comfort zone. Some will read his statement about supporting a "king" to mean a single leader. Knowing this, he should know better. He put the example under the Elder Authority solution. Is there an elder king? I get the sentiment. Kings require buildings and slaves (read Samuel's warning in Sam 8). Our societies left the small, everyone knows everything, beginnings. Our societies became huge industrial centers where individuals were lost between the cracks, and the Church didn't attempt to adjust and therefore lost touch with the people sitting in the pews as well. Chan and others before him continue to recognize and attempt to bridge the gap. Thanks to technology, we can uber our church.
Chan gets close. This is a good book to open the discussion. Please don't use it as a "how to" manual. Chan does point out that these things aren't set in stone. Please listen to what he is trying to say. Get to know fellow believers, like in each other's homes type of knowing. The pew isn't enough in today's society.
