Barefoot Church: Serving the Least in a Consumer Culture | [Brandon Hatmaker]

Barefoot Church: Serving the Least in a Consumer Culture

People are hungry to make a difference in their community, yet most don't know where to start. In fact, "serving the least" is often one of the most neglected biblical mandates in the church. Barefoot Church explains how today's church can be a catalyst for individual, collective, and social renewal in any context. Whether pastors or laypeople, listeners will discover practical ideas that end up being as much about the Gospel and personal transformation as they are about serving the poor.

Publisher's Summary

People are hungry to make a difference in their community, yet most don't know where to start. In fact, "serving the least" is often one of the most neglected biblical mandates in the church.

Barefoot Church explains how today's church can be a catalyst for individual, collective, and social renewal in any context. Whether pastors or laypeople, listeners will discover practical ideas that end up being as much about the Gospel and personal transformation as they are about serving the poor. Here they will see how the organizational structure of the church can be created or redesigned for mission in any context.

Drawing from his own journey, Brandon Hatmaker proves that serving the least is not a trendy act of benevolence but a lifestyle of authentic community and spiritual transformation. As Hatmaker writes, "My hope is that God would open our eyes more and more to the needs of our community. And that we would see it as the church's responsibility to lead the charge."

    Story
    "Awesome"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Barefoot Church to be better than the print version?

    A book is always better in paper but this is also very well done. I have trouble reading and comprehending so getting an audio book helps me with understanding the content.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The book is about serving the communities around you as God has called us to do. It is incredibly insightful and a must read for anyone in urban ministry.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    yes, but I'm using it for a text book and i have to stop and write summaries after each chapter.


    Any additional comments?

    just get the book whether its a paper copy or audio, you need to read this book.

    Story
    "The return of Christianity to social relevance."
    Would you listen to Barefoot Church again? Why?

    Yes I will, "The Barefoot Church" is an honest and telling story of a Pastor and his church on a journey to bring practical expression of their faith. This story addresses the lack of social relevance of modern Christianity as practiced by much of the church in America, as well as providing practical methods for reengaging the culture. Well worth the time!
