Publisher's Summary

Church has become boring, religious, and/or irrelevant for many people; while God is none of the above. Why is there such a difference between the perceived church and the real God that the church proclaims?

The early church was unscripted, alive, powerful, unpredictable, life-changing, and world-shaking. Our church services today are usually scripted, predictable, polished performances that seem to be making little impact in our society. Why?

This book compares the early church that we know about in the book of Acts, and church as we know it in America today. Why was the early church powerful and life-changing? Why is it less so today? The answer may surprise you.

Not bad for the price.

Not a lot of personal information given by the author so its hard to relate 100 percent where she is coming from. However, having been a member of various churches of Christ (over 25 years) in many states and two different countries I do not see how her "new" church (which is only discribed in broad non specific terms) is significantly different than what i have "grown up" with.

In general though i think this book could be a valueable study aid if someone were wanting to do a series study (maybe in a small group setting) about refocusing/revializing your church.
