The church is on the verge of massive, category shifting, change.Contemporary church growth, despite its many blessings, has failed tostem the decline of Christianity in the West. We are now facing the fact that more of the same will not produce different results. Our timesrequire a different kind of church---an apostolic, reproducing, movement where every person is living a mission-sent life.Many of the best and brightest leaders in the contemporary church arenow making the shift in the way they think, lead, and organize.Motivated partly by a vision of the church as ancient as it is new, andwith a driving desire to see Biblical Christianity establish itself inWestern cultural contexts, we are indeed seeing a new form of the church emerge in our day. Hirsch and Ferguson call this 'apostolic movement'because it is more resonant with the form of church that we witness inthe pages of the New Testament and in the great missional movements ofhistory.In this book, Hirsch and Ferguson share a rich array of theology,theory, and best practices, along with inspiring stories about leaderswho have rightly diagnosed their churches' failure to embrace a biblical model of mission and have moved toward a fuller expression of thegospel. On the Verge will help church leaders discover how theseforerunners and their insights are launching a new apostolicmovement---and how any church can get involved.
