Jesus' Surprising Strategy
Jesus' Surprising Strategy: A Mandate and Means for City Transformation
by David Drum We are better together!
We each hold a piece of the puzzle to our community's needs. You're likely familiar with Jesus' prayer that His followers would be one. Less well-known is how strategic and timely this prayer is as well as how instructional the prayer is about the kind of unity for which Jesus is praying. Combine Jesus' prayer with the apostle Paul's citywide analogy, and you have a gift that provides powerful direction for how the body of Christ is supposed to operate in every city - direction that could provide the very societal transformation we so desperately seek and need. Unity for any group requires work and intentionality. Building on Jesus' prayer and Paul's analogy, Jesus' Surprising Strategy, examines five levels of unity. Each level building on the previous one, and each providing a practical, biblical means for the roles you can play to fulfill Jesus' prayer in our day, in your relationships, and in your city. It concludes wtih a case study of how this is beginning to be realized in Tucson, Arizona. David Drum encourages, instructs, and reveals his personal journey toward seeing Christian unity as a mandate worthy of your very best effort.
