The author of this book, President of Southwest Radio Church Ministries, was the member of a church that went from a mission in 1975 to the number two Baptist Church in Oklahoma in 2004. In 2004 his church adopted, through a new pastor, the Purpose Driven Church format. What happened at Pastor Hutchings church has also happened to thousands of churches across the nation in changing from a traditional and fundamental doctrinal position to a contemporary and informal style of Purpose Driven Church service. Dr. Rick Warren works on the principle to attract the non-churched and non-Christians by a worship setting in which they would feel comfortable . This would mean removing Christian traditional emblems like the cross, contemporary music, and informing the old pillars they could go if they did not approve. Dr. Warren has stated that he has trained or retrained 600,000 pastors in how to establish Purpose Driven Churches, which in many cases means to take over already established churches. As documented in this book, Dr. Warren has said that the five basic fundamentals of the Christian faith are too narrow, that fundamentalists are the biggest enemies we have, and we need to bring the Protestants, Catholics, Muslims, and all religions together to stop wars, heal the sick, and feed the hungry. Dr. Warren has ignored the advice of men like Charles Spurgeon who warned, The devil s biggest lie is that we can win souls with entertainment . One of the problems facing churches that have gone Purpose Driven is that when the old pillars left, the remaining younger attendance provides little or no financial support and the church ministry suffers or ends. A tract based on chapter 12 of this book, Is Your Church Going Purpose Driven, How Can You Tell , has been disseminated worldwide. Every church member, and especially pastors, should read about the other side of the Purpose Driven Church controversy presented in this book. Brother Hutchings says that the most frequent question they get from their nationwide listenership is, Where can I find a good church.

Noah Hutchings was born December 11, 1922 in Southeast Oklahoma near Hugo. His father lost the farm during the 1929-30 market collapse, and Noah lived with his grandmother who drew a Civil War pension. In 1938-39, he worked for the Franklin D. Roosevelt NRA farm program. Noah also served in WWII which included three years in the South Pacific theatre as a radar operator for a 16-gun, 90 mm Antiaircraft Bn the first half and director of field artillery for the First Cavalry Armored Division the second half. After WWII, Noah went back to school and graduated with a degree in business law, management, and accounting from Hills University. He went to work as an accountant for Southwest Radio Church Ministries in April, 1951, and after the death of the founder, Dr. E.F. Webber in 1959, he became more involved in direct ministry. He has written more than 100 books, including his latest, 40 Irrefutable Signs of the Last Generation . He has participated in or produced more than 20,000 radio programs and many additional TV programs. He has been personally involved in dozens of missions to Russia, China, Mongolia, Central America, and other countries. He has also led Bible tours to many foreign countries, including 53 just to Israel. At 88, he continues to work six days a week with teaching at church on Sunday. He has three daughters, Cathy, Cheryl, and Carol, and lives with his wife Kim in Oklahoma City.
