Item description for The Lazarus Church: Resurrecting Passionate Ministry in Mainline Congregations by Jerry Mayo...

Using the story of Lazarus receiving new life as its central metaphor, The Lazarus Church shows how to breathe new life into the church. Rich stories and examples from Jerry Mayo's background illustrate how the true Lazarus church can come alive. Mayo knows how important it is to simply focus on Jesus Christ. He speaks with an authoritative and convincing voice -- we should listen to him.--Maxie Dunnam, President, Asbury Theological SeminaryThis excellent book should be read by pastors and church leaders as they discern how to be the church in a new century. Jerry Mayo provides a faithful and intelligent prescription for those who love the mainline church and want it to be all God calls it to be in our day.--John M. Buchanan, Pastor, Fourth Presbyterian Church, Chicago; Former Moderator, Presbyterian General Assembly (PCUSA)It is notably difficult to successfully combine the spiritual dimension of church life with the practical operation of the institution. Jerry Mayo has done just that. This book will give hope to congregations of all denominations, and especially to those mainline churches that are declining. Mayo clearly understands the need to focus on Jesus' love as the starting point for new life and vitality in the church.--The Right Reverend Bertram Nelson Herlong, Episcopal Bishop of TennesseeThe Lazarus Church offers a compelling vision for the renewal of mainline Protestant congregations and affirms the value of the tradition that they've inherited. It calls these churches to fulfill a new mission today and shows them how to do it.--Timothy W. Whitaker, Resident Bishop, The Florida Conference, The United Methodist Church
