“Warning! This book may create significant pain. That’s because it’s always painful to learn that the things you thought would make you and your church better may actually be making them worse. But fear not! In this incredible book, Hunter and Swank assess, then address, the biggest challenge that keeps the church from becoming all that God intends it to be. They reveal the challenge our churches face isn’t the lack of a program but rather the lack of a Kingdom culture. These guys offer real hope and real help for those of us ofttimes war-weary pastors in the trenches by advancing a spiritual approach to a spiritual issue. You’re gonna love this.
After pastoring North Ridge for twenty-one years now, I can truthfully say I love this church now more than ever and want desperately for it to become so much more of what God wants it to be. I look forward to sharing what Kent and Tracee are teaching me with our leaders.”
