9780830836192: Movements That Change the World: Five Keys to Spreading the Gospel

When Jesus commissioned his followers, he was not just inaugurating the historical church, he was founding a missionary movement.Originally released by Missional Press and now revised and expanded to include a multi-session discussion guide, Steve Addison's Movements That Change the World draws from biblical, historical and contemporary case studies to isolate the essential elements of a dynamic missionary movement. The church fulfills its mission today to the extent that it honors these essential elements, modelled perfectly in Jesus’ missionary enterprise:

  • white-hot faith
  • commitment to the cause
  • contagious relationships
  • rapid mobilization
  • adaptive methods
Throughout the ages Jesus' followers have been called to continue his movement in the power of the Holy Spirit. Like many such movements, it changed the world. Unlike most movements, which have their historical moment and then fade away, Christianity is actively, continually changing the world for the better.

About the Author:

Steve Addison (DMin, Fuller Theological Seminary) has a calling to fuel movements that multiply disciples and churches―everywhere. He and his wife Michelle lead MOVE, an Australia-based mission agency dedicated to making disciples and multiplying churches around the world. Steve began his research into Christian movements in the late 1980s while serving as a church planter in Melbourne, Australia, and he is the author of Movements That Change the World: Five Keys to Spreading the Gospel and What Jesus Started: Joining the Movement, Changing the World.

Alan Hirsch is the founding Director of Forge Mission Training Network. He is the co-founder of shapevine.com, an international forum for engaging with world transforming ideas. He leads Future Travelers, a learning journey applying missional-incarnational approaches to established churches and is an active participant in The Tribe of LA, a Jesus community among artists and creatives in Los Angeles. Known for his innovative approach to mission, Hirsch is a teacher and key mission strategist for churches across the western world. His popular book The Shaping of Things to Come (with Michael Frost) is widely considered to be a seminal text on mission. Alan's recent book The Forgotten Ways, has quickly become a key reference for missional thinking, particularly as it relates to movements. His book ReJesus is a radical restatement about the role that Jesus plays in defining missional movements. Untamed, his latest book (with his wife Debra) is about missional discipleship for a missional church. His experience in leadership includes leading a local church movement among the marginalized as well as heading up the Mission and Revitalization work of his denomination. Hirsch is an adjunct professor at Fuller Seminary and lectures frequently throughout Australia, Europe, and the U.S.

Review:

"In this book Steve Addison demonstrates the desire of God from the biblical era until today. He casts a compelling future vision by tracing God's discernible lessons demonstrated in movements. Steve taps into the heart hunger of the growing number of us that want to see God do something great. Your heart will be stirred while you read Movements That Change the World. If you are like me, you will be prompted to stop and pray, 'Lord, do it again, for the sake of our communities and nations--for every man, woman and child!'" (Ed Stetzer, missiologist and author of Planting Missional Churches)

"Adaptive, innovative and consuming. Those words characterize the movements Steve Addison describes and prescribes in his book. They also depict the book--pick it up and it won't let go of you. I couldn't put it down till it finished rearranging my mind. This is a keeper!" (Ralph Moore, founding pastor of Hope Chapel Kaneohe Bay, Hawaii, and author of How to Multiply Your Church)

"This will be a valuable contribution to our growing understanding of church-planting movements and their history, scope and nature. . . . I will be recommending this to everyone I know." (David Garrison, missionary with the Southern Baptist International Mission Board and author of Church Planting Movements)

"An important book for our times--well researched, well written, and well thought out. Steve identifies the essential qualities that have defined movements of the Spirit throughout the ages. The stories he tells--biblical, historical, contemporary and personal--give us hope for fresh movements of God in our day." (Robert E. Logan, founder of CoachNet International Ministries and author of Be Fruitful and Multiply)

"Steve has been tantalizing me with tales of this book for years. He has talked to me about the content on numerous occasions. The chapters are distilled from years of experience and thought, and the final product has not disappointed. Practitioners and thinkers with a passion for mission will want to read and reread this book." (Martin Robinson, director of Together in Mission, UK, and coauthor of Metavista: Bible, Church and Mission in the Age of Imagination)

"There are very few who have truly studied, dissected and understood church multiplication movements at the core. My friend Steve Addison has done his homework. I have anticipated this work for some time and am pleased to report it is better than I ever expected. Steve has put in the years of research and synthesizes his vast amounts of experience, wisdom and research into an easy-to-read book." (Neil Cole, founder of Church Multiplication Associates and author of Organic Church)

"I love this book! Every so often a book comes along that fuels the flame that was started in my heart years ago when I was a young and on-fire world changer. I love reading this type of book. I'm still a fanatical, fiercely focused, imbalanced, apostolic type guy. I'm older now, but more fervent than ever. If you're looking for an intelligent and passionate book to stir you to dream big dreams of how a movement can begin through your life and that will give you practical tools to help implement those dreams, then read Movements That Change the World!" (Floyd McClung, founder/director of All Nations, South Africa, and author of You See Bones, I See an Army)
