Tony Morgan reviews a new book by Frank Viola and George Barna about the house church movement. Here’s an excerpt:
I just finished a review copy of Pagan Christianity? by Frank Viola and George Barna. This is a revised and updated version of the same book that Viola published in 2002. Basically, the book is an attack on the institutional church and Viola and Barna’s attempt to portray the house church movement as the only biblical method for the church body to gather.
In fact, the “final thought” that the book shares is a three-step process for people to leave their current church.
I’m sure for some people it’s the expression of faith that best helps them experience biblical community and spiritual growth. Though it’s not for me, it’s just another reminder that it takes all kinds of churches to reach all kinds of people.
