I have just started reading a new book entitled "The Disciple Making Pastor" by Bill Hull. Has anyone read it or know about the autor? Saw some interesing statements in the introducton. Some examples are "The evangelical church has become weak, flabby, and too dependent on artifical means that can only simulate real spirtual power". "The average Chrsitian resides in the comfort zone of 'I pay the pastor to preach,administrate, and counse....I am the comsumer, he is the retailer..." "We can most clearly see this in our idolatrous worship of the American Superchurch. The bigger it is, and the more its methods mimic the American entrepreneurial spirit, the better. The seduction is complete when the bigger, the more creative, and the more'successful' chruches serve as the ultimate by which we measure all other churches. Commets?
