Item description for A Pixel in a Greater Picture: The Emerging Church of Christ by Fred Peatross...

All churches want to transform people. The challenge is that the "transformational journey" of the Christendom era that ended in the 20th century no longer works for 21st century people. Today, multitudes of spiritual seekers have already embarked upon a different journey. The baffled Churches of Christ have mapped out a transformational journey, but more and more people opt out or never start. Christian leaders may cynically believe nobody takes an interest in spiritual growth, but they're wrong. Lots of people are interested in spiritual growth. They just go about the journey in a different way.

If evangelicals are interested in reaching the largest segment of our population they're going to have to carefully consider what kinds of evangelistic approaches best work in a postmodern world. In this groundbreaking book Peatross offers practical advice to Christians who have been trained to do ministry in a world that no longer exist.

Reviews - What do customers think about A Pixel in a Greater Picture: The Emerging Church of Christ?

The Sequel is Rarely as Good as the Original  Oct 18, 2002
Another series of short essays on current issues in the churches of Christ. This book is similar in structure, tone, and content to the author's original book: Tradition, Opinion, and Truth. Like the original, this book contains many novel and, occasionally, deep thoughts that break the mold of traditional thinking and open the heart to new possibilities and perspectives. For some reason, I did not find this one quite as stimulating as the original--or perhaps it was too stimulating. It seemed to give me a case of "change overload," a sense that some of the essays were written more for "shock value" or to encourage "change for change sake" than "responsible change." Still, I can recommend this book to the awareness of congregational leaders and other mature Christian thinkers. May we never forget Him who does not change.
This thought-provoking book speaks to my soul!  Jun 17, 2001
Fred is a God-gifted writer and encourager. He is a change agent. I am reminded of how Jesus brought radical change to the traditions of His time on earth. I pray we all become Christ-like and do the same.
A Pixel in a Greater Picture  Jun 6, 2001
Fred Peatross' book is not only a call to reform in Churches of Christ but a call to relevance. He challenges our "sacred cows" in a biblically thoughtful way that not only touches our heads but reaches our hearts. Some of his most challenging material is aimed at church leaders. In a renewed call to humility he states, "I believe that much of the work the Lord wants to do in the lives of leaders is to teach them to walk in their weakness as powerfully as they walk in their strengths." Fred interweaves biblical scholarship with story for a book that transports us closer to the will of God and the foot of the cross.

--Paul Woodhouse Minister, Grace Church of Christ

A Pixel in a Greater Picture  Jun 6, 2001
If one particular phrase could be employed to characterize the challenge placed before us by Fred Peatross it would be "responsible change." There is no more comfortable place than a deep rut. However, from the depths of a rut one cannot see the horizon, one loses sight of his surroundings, and one is incapable of moving forward. Another name for a deep rut is a "grave."

Fred, in this exciting new book, has challenged the people of God to leave their religious ruts and move ahead into an exciting new century. It is a call to "responsible change," the only kind of change that will truly bring glory to our God and a much-needed transformation to His people. This book will make you THINK...but that is the only avenue of escape from a traditional trench!!

--Al Maxey, Pulpit Minister/Elder Cuba Avenue Church of Christ
