    "Revolution" by: George Barna

    I just borrowed this book from my pastor, Im going to try and read it in one sitting so I can give it back, I havent even started it yet, but I'd like to ask if anyone else has read or heard about it now so that by the time I'm done with it maybe there will be some responses.

    The back of it reads:
    "In this groundbreaking book, Barna examines the state of the church today- and compares it to the biblical picture of the church as God intended it to be. He documents how and why a new brand of devout "Revolutionaries" is abandoning the local church building while attempting to become the Church that Christ commisioned us to be."

    Here's a link to a review of the book: http://jollyblogger.typepad.com/joll...eview_rev.html
    For whatever strength of arm he may have who swims in the open sea, yet in time he is carried away and sunk, mastered by the greatness of its waves. Need then there is that we be in the ship, that is, that we be carried in the wood, that we may be able to cross this sea. Now this Wood in which our weakness is carried is the Cross of the Lord, by which we are signed, and delivered from the dangerous tempests of this world.--St. Augustine

    thanks alot Wildboar, that helps alot. I think Im somewhere in-between on the book.. though there are some good points about the focus on self, and defining the church in our own way truly is the problem that is being addressed.
