A must read for anyone who wants to 'do church differently,' in the third millennium.
On several occasions, history has provided the needed critical mass and the synergistic inertia to thrust the church into breaking out of its box and becoming the force in culture and society that God intended it to be.
Today, the church, in the 21st Century, has once again reached this 'critical mass.' It is something so big and so obvious that the winds of change demand we look hard at our forms and face the reality that a different church must provide a different response to a post-modern age. This Third Millennium ('a day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as a day,' 2 Peter 3:8; Psalm 90:4), or this 'Third Day' requires a 'Third Way' of doing and being the church.
This book tells the story of one of those churches - a single-cell, Sunday morning, building-driven, pastor-dominated church that has broken out into an empowering network of churches and ministries.
