Item description for It Takes a Church to Raise a Village by Marva Mitchell...

Overview
If the Church is to 'raise the village,' it must stop having church and start being the Church!" It Takes a Church to Raise a Village contrasts the pompous splendor of the modern church with the frantic destitution of the village around her. This is not a 'feel good' book. With prophetic prowess Dr. Mitchell confronts the church with her lack of sensitivity to the raging village needs right at her doorsteps. "We are more concerned with the elegance of our edifices than we are with the plight of the people all around us." "The church lives in fear of the village surrounding them. They are more concerned about the village breaking in to their beautiful facilities than about breaking out into the neighborhood with the power of the glorious gospel of our Lord." Dr. Mitchell offers a passionate plea challenging the church to get out of the bleachers and on to the playing field. Dr. Mitchell declares, "We can't affect the outcome of the game if we are not in the game." Pastor of a 1,000-member congregation in Ohio, Dr. Mitchell doesn't speak from lofty theory, but from years of measurable success in rescuing children from damaged homes and troubled schools....offering literacy programs, rehabilitation for former prisoners, job training for the homeless, adoptions services, unwed pregnancy counseling...and much more. She certainly has proved It Takes a Church to Raise a Village.

Reviews - What do customers think about It Takes a Church to Raise a Village?

It Takes A Church To Raise A Village  Dec 18, 2002
I thank God for Dr. Marva Mitchell for her obedience to Him in writing such a powerful book. "It Takes A Church To Raise A Village", is a phenomenal tool on how we, the Body Of Christ must get involved and extend Hope and release love to underprivileged communities.
 
Realistic and Powerful  Dec 12, 2002
I enjoyed this book. It's fast, easy, and powerful reading. Most importantly, it made me think about the real purpose of the church in our society and my role in it. Are we just sitting in beautiful edifices week after week or are we here to do a life changing work in the village of our communities? This book's message is beneficial for individuals and the church collectively. Buy it; read it if you want to be influenced to make a difference in your village!
