“Lots of people are fed up with ‘organized religion.’ They recognize that religion is too often poorly organized-or well organized around the wrong purposes! Drawing wisdom from the important field of community organizing, this book helps you imagine a church organizing well and for the right purposes.” – Brian D. McLaren, Activist, Author
“Conder and Rhodes have led community organizing ministry in their contexts; now they guide us in organizing the church Christ means for us to be.” – Will Willimon, Duke Divinity School, United Methodist School (retired)
“A very timely book! Tim and Dan invite you down a path that’s not for the faint of heart or the dull of spirit.” – Vanna Fox, Senior Vice President, Wild Goose Festival
“The Church is badly in need of an ecclesiology that is world-centered and not self-centered.” – Gerald Kellman, Reinvestment Organizer and Barack Obama’s Organizing Mentor
