Books I have read: An Hour On Sunday

Monday, December 24, 2007

Over the last month I have read Nancy Beach’s An Hour on Sunday. This was an interesting book – at times it was hugely helpful and practical, at other times it seemed to be so focussed on the way that a mega-church runs with huge artistic teams, and people who seem to be able to commit masses of time – things that just aren’t realistic in my setting. As you would expect the book was very arty, and well designed with lots of lovely quotes throughout. The general theme of her book could be summed up by this:

Something very significant can happen when the body of Christ gathers all together on a Sunday morning. Those weekly services define what matters to a church and its leaders. (p 23)
