Okay, All Together Now…






More and more Christian leaders are sensing that the pundit who called our era the Evangelical Recession was on to something. Half-empty churches, glacial growth, declining resources… symptoms of a languishing church, precursors of a frightening spiritual drought. This bus obviously isn’t going anywhere except it travel on supernatural wheels. Could this be why the Designer of the Christian faith said He wanted His church to be called a House of Prayer?

The deep brokenness of our families, our culture, our communities will not be healed by better methods or more sophisticated marketing. Only as God anoints who we are and what we do will we move from institution to movement, farce to force. That anointing He has chosen to distribute only in response to the intense intercession of His church.

But how do we change the emphasis from what we have come to accept to what we ought to expect? This 96-page book can help. Dr. Jacobsen is an experienced pastoral practitioner who is also a visionary observer. He is candid about what he sees that isn’t working in today’s Christian church, and optimistic about transformational options.

You won’t agree with everything he writes, you won’t like some of what you read, but you’ll discover that he never raises a sticky issue for which he doesn’t also suggest a practical and doable strategy. Most of them will be built around corporate knee-time. And remember, this isn’t a book about praying, this a book about seeing your church move to a growing, effective, prayer-saturated, city-impacting congregation.

moment. I’m falling to my knees.” GS

“As I read your essay, my pulse quickened,
and now I feel the excitement of success for
God. One feature of your composition is that
it begins quietly with the narrative and then
builds through the ‘what if’s.’ I feel called to
pray and talk with Jesus more often
and more pointedly…” DM
