Item description for Paradigm Lost: Rediscovering the Organic Nature of Spiritual Harvest by Howard L. Foltz & Ruth Ford...
Overview By going back to the paradigm of farming, we can more fully understand the words jesus used as he taught his disciples about spreading the good news of God's kingdom.
Publishers Description In our society dominated by technology, have we lost the ability to understand fully what Jesus meant when he used the words sowing, reaping and harvesting in relation to evangelism? There is a timelessness in the teachings of Jesus as he purposely chose agrarian language sowing, reaping, harvesting when he taught his disciples. We recognize these words but have lost first-hand experience with them in our urban lives. Jesus used these words not only because they came from the culture of the time but because they were vital to illustrate the organic nature of growing God's kingdom.Sometimes the best way forward is to go back. The best way to move forward in evangelism is to go back to an agrarian mindset that is all but lost in our fast-paced, technocratic world a paradigm lost. Dr. Foltz is in no way advocating that we move back to the farm but he wants us to view Scripture through a farmer's paradigm. In Paradigm Lost, he explains how technology has reshaped our worldview and then he takes us back through agricultural processes, giving them spiritual application. This book is a call to the church to restore the harvest mentality of Jesus' words and gives step-by-step examples of how to implement this farming paradigm for more effective evangelism in our neighborhoods, our country and the world.
