Review by davegregg
It's an intellectual's book, but not in a dry kind of way. Alan isn't afraid either of coining new terminology or of importing terminology from other areas and accomodating it for use with missiology and ecclesiology. He is an expert in living systems theory and makes handy use of this field in his analysis and suggestions for the church. It is definitely not like the books you are used to reading on missiology and ecclesiology, and for that Hirsch deserves accolades. Our Aussie friend Alan Hirsch has found himself with the punctuated habit of breathing life into stale systems.Don't let the strange new terms throw you off. I suggest you pick up this book if you are at all interested in the church's system and mission.
