Interesting storyline, however his interviews were not really that groundbreaking.

It was great getting sucked into his quest however it started to become annoying. In cringeworthy superficial millennial ways. But good for him in doing it. However there is more to life than the things being chased in this book.

Millions are satisfied to sit through hour-long, weekly religious services. Millions more have left the church, brokenhearted and cynical. But God is waking up his people - people who will risk everything and sacrifice anything to become the dynamic, powerful church seen in Scripture. We Are Church calls Christ-followers, young and old, to hold fast to their biblical roots while seeking radical change. Scripture promises an exuberant and unstoppable church. That wondrous early church of acts can be our reality today.

It was good a good read in that most of the western church is not living a Christian life they are called to. We are really called to live as they did in the first century. Laid down lovers of Jesus.

However Chan’s solution is smaller house churches which doesn’t sound too different to small group structures that most big churches already promote..

Really we as believers must be living repentant and earnestly seeking the gifts of the spirit. Jesus said those who believe will raise the dead, heal the sick and cast out demons. If that is a sign of a believer, most believers should be questioning what their fair looks like. We should be loving relentlessly and moving to do these things with the Holy Spirit which we have been gifted

When it comes to leadership books, we find a vast sea of titles. How is this book any different? The answer is simple. This is not a book for those who want a highly controlled environment. This is a book for those longing for the biblical reality of New Covenant-styled leaders. New Covenant leaders are servant-hearted, vulnerable, affectionate, openhearted and transparent. They don't talk about covering or being under spiritual authority, rather they are true mothers and fathers in the faith, and their churches are easily described as spiritual family.

This is an excellent breakdown of the covenants and how it has transitioned over time. Which is truely essential information to understand the power of the cross and what Jesus did. He came to establish a new covenant of forgiveness. Quite easy to follow, highly recommended!
