About this title

Synopsis:

This is a book for Christians who love God, yet have come to a place where aspects of the institutional church, somehow, no longer seem to fit their lives.

Limitations explains institutional elements of the North American church, why they exist, and does so without throwing rocks or fault finding. It leaves the reader focused upon what it means to posses an attentive ear and a heart that is hearing. 

From the Author:


Seeing Church Through the Prism of Corporation  (An Excerpt from Limitations)

When people conclude--even without consciously thinking about it--that it is possible to pick up ekklesia, refer to it as church, and then move it inside the operational and cultural apparatus of corporation, the implications are far-reaching. The ekklesia, like the young watermelon we looked at in an earlier chapter, ends up being placed inside a glass-like container, and by virtue of that fact, is compelled to take on the shape of the container. Our understanding of church thus becomes characterized by the features of corporation and all that it implies.

By virtue of what a corporation is, its DNA supplies a never ending propensity to focus on leadership, performance, and function. The culture of corporation--any corporation--is predisposed to look for ways to establish processes, measure success, and quantify results. This is one of the reasons so many church corporations are quick to think in terms of "values," and the way human power sources might be harnessed in order to promote those values.

Many church members, and especially church leaders, thus find themselves quietly--and often unknowingly--drawn to the place where they set a higher priority on values, and the quantifiable results of promoting those values, than they do on humility, transparent relationship, and hearing the Father's voice.
