Item description for What on Earth Is the Church For?: A Blueprint for the Future for Church Based Mission and Social Action by David Devenish...

Overview
David Devenish believes that the church exists as a means of taking the gospel message to every people group. He believes that the church is very much at the center of God's purposes, and in this book presents the church, not as a static pastoral community, but as a vibrant, active body totally committed to world mission. David investigates the importance of church planting to reach the nations and looks at Church-based mission and how to make local churches "missional" in both thinking and practice. Set within a framework of the Kingdom of God, David demonstrates what the "Kingdom down to earth" really implies for Church-based Kingdom social action. Finally, David examines the culture and contextualization of social action along with some of the dangers and difficulties of apostolic mission, before asking the fundamental question, "Who will go?"

Community Description

Reviews - What do customers think about What On Earth Is The Church For??

church as it was intended  Jul 3, 2008
Dave Devenish has written an exceptional book on the very essence of the church as a missional and transformational agent for the expansion of the kingdom of God. Highly recommended for those wanting to get in touch with the church as it was met to be. Written from the perspective of a reformed and charismatic apostolic leader who is actively engaged is doing what he writes about.
