Description des Livres :
Review This evocative title put Viola's expertise in church history on the grid. Viola teamed up with research heavy-weight George Barna to create a formidable, devastating, prophetically written tour de force on ecclesiology. From the jolting opening to the challenging ending, this is a bittersweet, compelling, and dramatic progression of historical and challenging content. Love it or lump it, you can't read it and remain settled. This book sparked a revolution that set the stage for Viola's other groundbreaking works, establishing him as a voice that couldn't be ignored.Â Pagan ChristianityÂ is a milestone of raw passion and energy.Christian Book Reviews Read more From the Back Cover Are we really doingâ€Šchurch 'by the Book'?Why does the pastor preach a sermon at every service?Â Why do church services seem so similar week after week?Â Why does the congregation sit passively in pews?Â Not sure? This book makes an unsettling proposal:Â Most of what present-day Christians do in church each Sunday is rooted, not in the New Testament, but in pagan culture and rituals developed long after the death of the apostles.Â Â Authors Frank Viola and George Barna support their thesis with compelling historical evidence and extensive footnotes that document the origins of our modern Christian church practices.In the process, the authors uncover the problems that emerge when the church functions more like a business organization than the living organism it was created to be. Â As you reconsider Christ's revolutionary plan for His churchâ€•to be the head of a fully functioning body in which all believers play an active roleâ€•you'll be challenged to decide whether you can ever do church the same way again.Â Read more See all Editorial Reviews
