The Revolutionized Church of the 21st Century


This product qualifies towards the free shipping offer.

Experience the explosive power of a church built on relationships. Russell urges us to make small, nurturing, relational groups the central organizing principle in our churches.

As in his two previous books in this landmark trilogy–Revolution in the Church and Radical Disciples for Revolutionary Churches–author Russell Burrill proposes again in this third volume, yes, nothing less than a radical, revolutionary change in how we Adventists "do church."

In his first book, Pastor Burrill examined the biblically assigned roles and relationships of pastors and the laity. In his second volume, he focused on the need for "discipling" new converts to the church family.

Now, in the Revolutionized Church of the 21st Century, the author addresses our urgent need to recover a sense of community through small, relational groups.

But this is not just another handbook on how to conduct small groups. This is a heart cry–rooted in the history of the early Christian church and in early Adventist history as well–to make small, nurturing, relational groups the central organizing principle of our churches.

The world–indeed, the church itself–is filled with people starving for relationships, starving for a safe and caring place where they can come and admit and share their struggles and shortcomings without fear of judgment or rejection.

If the church can once again recapture the awesome and magnetic power of such small groups, the world will show up en masse to bask in the love and support and affirmation they find there.

No three books written in recent decades are more urgently needed by the church we love than the three comprising this trilogy.
