How do we live out the message of Jesus in today's ever-changing culture? The church is facing its greatest challenge--and its greatest opportunity--in our postmodern, post-Christian world. God is drawing thousands of spiritually curious "imperfect people" to become his church--but how are we doing at welcoming them? No Perfect People Allowed shows you how to deconstruct the five main barriers standing between emerging generations and your church by creating the right culture. From inspiring stories of real people once far from God, to practical ideas that can be applied by any local church, this book offers a refreshing vision of the potential and power of the Body of Christ to transform lives today.   "We now are living in a post-Christian America--and that means we must be rethinking ministry through a missionary mindset. What makes this book both unique and extremely helpful is that it is filled with real-life stories of post-Christian people becoming followers of Jesus--not just statistics or data about them." Dan Kimball, Author, The Emerging Church    "No Perfect People Allowed is a timely and necessary word for church leaders in a post Christian culture. John Burke serves up quite a tasty meal full of the rich nutrients that will strengthen the Body of Christ." Randy Frazee, Senior Pastor, Pantego Bible Church; Author, The Connecting Church and Making Room for Life… (more)

No current Talk conversations about this book.

A challenging and thought-provoking book on ways to reach people in postmodern America with the message of Jesus. The book is full of examples of what worked, what was not as successful, and provides many suggestions for means to go forward.

It is worth consideration and reflection upon current strategies, church culture, and the way that believers can go forward in promoting the cause of Christ. ( )
