Publisher's Summary

It's no secret that the church today has lost its influence in culture.

But why? With the technology, affluence, and knowledge we have today, why are we less effective than the first-century church - which didn't have social media or fancy buildings or professional pastors or even religious freedom?

What are we missing?

In this vital, eye-opening book, best-selling author Ed Silvoso digs into Scripture, unearthing Jesus' true design for his church - his Ekklesia. He shows how the early church was a radical, countercultural force of people who transformed the hostile, pagan places in which they lived. Here Dr. Silvoso shows how we, in the midst of the social, economic, political, and moral chaos in our world today, can once again become the revolutionary, transformational, life-giving Ekklesia Jesus called us to be.

points over explained

there are some interesting points in this book, but overall the same points are over stated again and again in each chapter. this book could be summarised in one chapter; The church is a group of people that ought to diciple nations and do good works and influence their work place and community. There are some bad hermenutics used in order to put across his point. overall, the author has a heart for God and is a gifted evangelist, but it feels as though the book is a little redundant and might of been more controversial 20 years ago.

What the Church could be...

Ed Silvoso takes us on a journey from Antioch to Asia, from the Middle East to Mexico, from Ephesus to Argentina. This book weaves the principles of Prayer Evangelism and Transformation through a challenge to the Church to become what she is called to be. Whilst Silvoso speaks with the convictions and experiences of a Pentecostal believer, his passion married to biblical exposition and contemporary narrative makes this a brilliant book to read or listen to. My soul has been stirred again as an evangelist and leader to believe that the redemption paid for by Christ, and the work of the Holy Spirit in and through His people, will lead to Acts-like demonstrations of God's saving and transforming power , not just for individuals, but for families, communities, towns, cities and nations. Read this book and let its truth seep into your soul

Challenging and Revolutionary!

This book is brave enough to ask the questions that should have been raised a long time ago and it goes on to offer insights and solutions! It's a but of a marathon so I don't advise you Tey to finish this in a day however exciting it may seem. A notepad and pen is advised. Finally I must point out that the views in this book will be to radical for some to hear even though the heart behind it is Biblical and Godly. A humble heart and willingness to see the world afresh is advised and you will get the most out of this book.
