My new book, It’s Like This: Visions that Help and Hurt the Church is now available by ebook at Amazon. For everyone who cares about the church, It’s Like This is meant to be an essential step towards a God-sized vision.
Churches languish for lack of vision, and pastors often blindly misunderstand the way their congregations already think about the church’s vision. Everyone has a governing metaphor by which they think about the gathering of God’s people – some think it’s a country club, and some think it’s a battle ship. Some think it’s a circle of wagons, and some think it’s a kingdom under construction. Identifying the metaphor you think best for the church is critical to casting a vision for the church’s future.
It’s my hope that any church attender, church leader, pastor, or visionary will find the book of use. Enjoy the book and pray for your church!
