Publisher's Summary

What's the point of the church anyway?

The emerging generation is opting out of the church in large numbers. They're embarrassed at how the church is portrayed in the media and dismayed at what appears to be their options for participation. Is church really necessary anymore? Is it even possible?

Tim Soerens sees this unsettled state of affairs as an extraordinary opportunity: The church, he says, is on the edge of a new possibility at the very moment so much of it feels like it's falling apart. In his extensive travels in all kinds of neighborhoods, Soerens has seen the beginnings of this movement firsthand. In Everywhere You Look, he lays out practical, actionable steps for building collaborative communities in any neighborhood.

Here is a vision of the church grounded in a grassroots movement of ordinary people living out what it means to be the church in their everyday lives. Listen to this book-and join the movement.

Everything you thought the Church should be.

I really enjoyed this book. It’s a bringing together of ideas of how to be God’s people as the body of Christ in the world. Focusing on an expression of Christian community living into fulfilment of God’s dreaming; it is an enabling of ecclesial hope through the narrative of gospel like reversals, and an encouragement for leaders and learners alike.

Principles plus Practices = Doing Church

This is a refreshing book for Christians of all types, across the theological spectrum. It is oriented to the vital role churches and neighborhood groups which are not "churches" can play in social justice, meeting local (or broader) needs, creating an economy of well being, not merely money. Highly recommended.
