Is It Time to Quit Fixing the Church?

Reggie McNeal’s latest book releases this week, titled Kingdom Come: Why We Must Give Up Our Obsession with Fixing the Church, and What We Should Do Instead. Its title reminds readers of the Lord’s Prayer, and the subtitle then asks a tough question about it. Reggie argues that it’s crucial to realign the church’s mission with God’s ultimate Kingdom agenda, something we’ve somehow gotten backwards. In this short, humorous, and fast-moving interview, Leadership Network’s research director Warren Bird asks Reggie tough questions about his new book. Reggie McNeal is missional leadership specialist with Leadership Network.
