Item description for A Divine Confrontation: Birth Pangs of the New Church by Graham Cooke & Tommy Tenney...
Overview The Church is in a season of profound change. The birth pangs of transition are changing the order of 'what is' into a Church that can do the will of God in the midst of a difficult environment.
By nature, labor produces a violent change from the old to the new, and it has left some churches broken and bewildered.
We must discern between the work of the enemy and the work of the Holy Spirit. In essence, transition forms the rite of passage from one dimension of the Spirit to another. This book details the elements of that changing process.

Not for the religious or stagnant Aug 1, 2006
I could not believe this was written in 1999. Graham is truly a prophet for this season. This work is easy to read and deals with a lot of the churchy junk that has hindered the church in past and today. The confusion one would get is to try to read a work that is written from freedom when the mind is instilled with tradition and religious strongholds. The chapters on transition and character were excellent. I must say Graham has taken his experience and unfolded it apostolically and prophetically to a generation that is tired of being entertained, consoled, compromised, hoodwinked, conned and kept from the simplicity of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Thank you for a message that is refreshing, intriging, mind changing and illuminating.
This book can be life changing! Feb 22, 2006
This particular book helped explain so many things that have gone on and are going on in my life. What excitement you can have when you understand the processes of transition and the symptoms! It really allowed me to comprehend moments of confusion and frustration in a positive light. Unbelieveably helpful. Four other friends got the book at the same time and it is a blast to understand what each other is talking about when we discuss the book...
Graham is the real Deal Dec 8, 2005
Graham Cooke is a real man of God. He has ups and downs. He has issues just like the rest of us. But he is a prophet. He hears from God and he helps others hear from God.
No matter what format he used for his communication it would be worthwhile for you to read or listen and follow. I have met Graham and he is a great guy and a tremendous man of God.
lack of clarity Feb 4, 2005
I have a feeling if I was able to sit down and talk with Graham, I might agree with him more than I think. Unfortunately this book is one of the most poorly written and badly edited pieces of literature that I've seen in a long time. I found a lot of things that are so generically obvious that they shouldn't have taken up the entire chapters that were used to state them, several things that I might agree with if I could get through the lingo-laden, spiritual sales talk enough to understand what he meant, many things that just didn't make since at all not to mention complete contradictions of prior statements within the book, and some things that are outright questionable. He might have some good points in his personal vision, but unfortunately this book is such a mess that none of them are communicated.
10 STARS!! For folks TIRED of churchy rhetoric & works Jun 3, 2003
This can change your entire view on where you've been and where God wants to take you. Promise. I saw the Tommy Tenney name (did the foreword) and wondered how many fresh things can one man be involved in? Well, he's in a river for sure. Great book for frustrated leadership (a must actually). If you're in a 'satisfied' church, this may not be for you. If you're aching to grow in intimacy with God and relationships, if you are tired of Sunday only church and relationships, if you've been hurt by the church, this book will help open your eyes and uncover your idols (with God's direction of course). Some truly fresh, amazing rhema from heaven. Gets a little bogged down in the middle but don't give up--just press through it.
