The Forgotten Ways: Reactivating the Missional ChurchThe Forgotten Ways: Reactivating the Missional Church by Alan Hirsch
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

What is church. How do we define what is, and what is not, a viable Jesus people gathering. What caused the Church to grow from a few thousand, to millions in less than a century? Why is the Church in China growing so rapidly? What energized the movements in the Church in the 18th and 19th centuries, and caused revivals to come forth and numbers to skyrocket? Can it be repeated? Should it be? These are the answers and questions considered by church-planter and disciple-maker Alan Hirsch in his seminal work on where the Church is, where it has been…and (perhaps most importantly) where it needs to go to be free of the corporation-ness of our church bodies today, and freed into being an organic body of growth.
