Product Description

The church has been an institution for more than 1,700 years---but times are changing. How should Christian leaders shift their focus from managing an organization to spearheading a movement? Drawing on Ephesians 4, Hirsch and Catchim examine a fivefold ministry---apostles, prophets, evangelists, shepherds, and teachers---to equip you with fresh, missionally creative ideas that will revitalize your congregation. 316 pages, hardcover from Jossey-Bass.

Publisher's Description

A new brand of apostolic ministry for today's world

The Permanent Revolution is a work of theological re-imagination and re-construction that draws from biblical studies, theology, organizational theory, leadership studies, and key social sciences. The book elaborates on the apostolic role rooted in the five-fold ministry from Ephesians 4 (apostles, prophets, evangelists, shepherds, and teacher), and its significance for the missional movement. It explores how the apostolic ministry facilitates ongoing renewal in the life of the church and focuses on leadership in relation to missional innovation and entrepreneurship.The authors examine the nature of organization as reframed through the lens of apostolic ministry.

  • Shows how to view the world through a biblical perspective and continue the "permanent revolution" that Jesus started
  • Outlines the essential characteristics of apostolic movement and how to restructure the church and ministry to be more consistent with them
  • Alan Hirsch is a leading voice in the missional movement of the Christian West

This groundbreaking book integrates theology, sociology, and leadership to further define the apostolic movement.
