Rediscovering God's Instrument for Global Transformation
Where to Purchase
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 these vital, eye-opening pages, bestselling 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. Through biblical teaching and contemporary examples, 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.
