Read full description of the books:
Transformational Church came out of the results of a survey conducted of many churches the authors considered successful or transformational. Their findings were boiled down to seven major areas in which most of the churches scored relatively high:
1- missionary mentality
2- vibrant leadership
3- relational intentionality
4- prayerful dependence
Notice anything missing? Something that you'd think would be #1 on any list of "must-haves" for a church? The issue that I had with this book is not only is the Word of God not mentioned as one of the hallmarks of a transformational church, but that the Word of God is conspicuously absent or left largely undisturbed in their discussion of the seven areas.
This. is. a. major. problem. What is our foundation for missions? What style of leadership is being lauded? To what end should we be relational? To whom do we pray, and why? Whom do we worship? What is the Gospel?
If Scripture is not the #1 focus of a church, we are doing something wrong. Everything else stems out of a high view of the Bible and, subsequently, a biblical worldview. Sadly, many churches today opt for a copious amount of programming with a twenty-minute feel-good sermonette on Sunday mornings, in which Scripture is rarely expounded upon.
I rated this two stars because there are some intriguing trends mentioned in the book, but by no means should this book be the first someone turns to. I'd highly recommend Mark Dever's Nine Marks of a Healthy Church, whose first chapter is, appropriately, on the Word of God.
