Item description for No Perfect People Allowed: Creating a Come as You Are Culture in the Church by John Burke...

Overview
This book challenges Christian leaders to engage in the messy art of creating the right culture to reach the postmodern, post-Christian society. Through real stories of Gods perfect work in the lives of imperfect people, readers can experience the power of an authentic church community and learn how to bring hope and healing to Americas most unchurched generation.

Publishers Description
How do we live out the message of Jesus in today s ever-changing culture? The church is facing its greatest challenge---and its greatest opportunity---in our postmodern, post-Christian world. God is drawing thousands of spiritually curious imperfect people to become his church---but how are we doing at welcoming them? No Perfect People Allowed shows you how to deconstruct the five main barriers standing between emerging generations and your church by creating the right culture. From inspiring stories of real people once far from God, to practical ideas that can be applied by any local church, this book offers a refreshing vision of the potential and power of the Body of Christ to transform lives today. We now are living in a post-Christian America---and that means we must be rethinking ministry through a missionary mindset. What makes this book both unique and extremely helpful is that it is filled with real-life stories of post-Christian people becoming followers of Jesus---not just statistics or data about them. Dan Kimball, Author, The Emerging Church '. . . John's 'get it' factor with people, lost or found, is something to behold Reading this book filled me with optimism regarding the next generation of pastors and faith communities . . . ' Bill Hybels, Senior Pastor, Willow Creek Community Church No Perfect People Allowed is a timely and necessary word for church leaders in a post Christian culture. John Burke serves up quite a tasty meal full of the rich nutrients that will strengthen the Body of Christ.

Reviews - What do customers think about No Perfect People Allowed?

Thought Provoking  Feb 11, 2007
A well written book with lots of great stories. It certainly causes one to think about doing church in a way very different from the way most churches I have attended. Most churches build barriers to keep sinners out. The author suggests that sinners are exactly the people Jesus would want to be in church.
 
Not Perfect But . . .  Jan 9, 2007
This book challanged my way of thinking about the role of The Church in contemporary society. I found it both interesting to read and exciting in both the scope and depth of it's message. I heartily recomend it anyone interested in seeing God's Church become even more effective in this 21st century.

(Rev.) Frank Beardsley
 
Outstanding...  Nov 9, 2006
This is a must read for church leaders, especially young ones. John Burke has blazed a trail that others need to follow. He tackles the tough issues and gives us insight as to his mistakes and victories. Read it. I have...3 times!
 
Life Changing  Jul 8, 2006
This book is a must read for anyone looking to reach the next generation for Christ!
 
Wow.  Jun 23, 2006
It's hard to believe a five star review these days when you see one. So many people give five stars to their favourite artists, authors or whoever, regardless of how good the product is. If there were some way of showing that this 'really is' a five star worthy book, then maybe it would get across just how valuable and fascinating it really is. I bought this book for my dad last Christmas, and now we know at least ten people who have a copy as a result of us insisting they get it. Most have said they couldn't put it down, and the same goes for me, even though I quite honestly can't stand reading books. John Burke not only thinks outside the square, but he has literally taken a journey outside the square, and that's what makes this book of true stories even more exciting. It's time for the church to take hold of what this book is all about, and I can't stress that enough. I'm part of a small group starting a new seeker church, and we are all reading through this book week by week, it has taken us in a direction that we may never have taken without it. I'm over what I used to think was 'church', and I'm happy it's behind me. I picked this book up by what I thought was chance during some Christmas shopping, boy was I in for a surprise!
