Item description for Radical Outreach: The Recovery of Apostolic Ministry and Evangelism by George G. Hunter...

Overview
This book tells how the contemporary church can reclaim its ancient witness through hands-on ministries with the unchurched. When it comes to transforming people's lives and leading them into active Christian discipleship, why does there seem to be such a difference between the church we read about in the New Testament and our own churches today? What was it about those earliest Christians that empowered them to spread the gospel with such startling results? One core reason, says George G. Hunter III, is that they reached out into the communities in which they lived. Instead of building fortress churches and inviting others to come join them inside the walls, the earliest Christians spread out, engaging in hands-on ministries to meet the needs of people where they were. The churches today that have reclaimed this apostolic ministry are the ones that do not rely on worship, or even preaching, to woo the unchurched into visiting them. Rather, they use outreach ministries -- everything from recovery groups to English-as-a-second-language classes -- to reach those most in need of the healing word of the gospel.

Reviews - What do customers think about Radical Outreach: Recovery of Apostolic Ministry and Evangelism?

Radical Outreach  Nov 4, 2007
This book was required reading for an evangelism course at Wesley Theological Seminary in Washington DC. Hunter is quite blunt in his assessment of the Church and our failure to take seriously the evangelistic apostolic commission. Hunter does not leave the reader in a state of conviction but rather offers some concrete advice on how to regain the mission and ministry of all believers. Our congregation is currently studying this book in a small group setting. While it has made us a bit uncomfortable at times, it has also opened our eyes to what we have been doing right, what we have been doing wrong, and what we should be doing. It is affecting our congregation deeply. It is a must read for any Christian who is seeking to fulfill the Great Commission.
 
Thought provoking  Feb 18, 2007
"Radical" approach to outreach. Very thought provoking. Author has a great grasp of the problem faced by the church in an increasingly secularized world where people have little contact points with the church. He also has some excellent ideas for solutions.
 
Prophetic: Churches Either Understand Culture or Close  Dec 29, 2006

Fans of George G. Hunter will enjoy this volume. It delivers what we have come to expect from Hunter, a straight forward call for the church to remember the great commission and stop playing church. This book continues to build on themes we saw in "The Celtic Way of Evangelism: How Christianity Can Reach the West . . . Again." Hunter writes with insight and depth. His prophetic words will challenge those who want the church to remain the same as it was in the 1950's. Hunter understands history and current cultural trends. To ignore his message would be a serious mistake. This would be a good text for weekly small group study.
