Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jason | 2/18/2014

    " Interesting look at the practice of the 1st century church and searing critique of the institutional church today. I was definitely edified and encouraged by Mr. Viola's work. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Richard Wright | 2/18/2014

    " Great book for people who think church needs to be reimagined. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rick Gregory | 2/15/2014

    " This is a fresh look at the Church, and what she (we) have the privilege of looking like. Of how we can operate according to the Scriptures. Of how we can flourish apart from the top-down, hierarchical, pulpit-focused, program-driven organization that mitigates against the reality of the priesthood of every believer. Refreshing. "

    " This book radically changed my thinking about the modern church! I was already on the fringe, but now I have jumped over to the other side. It gels with all those concerns about the way church is played out that I had had hidden in my subconscious and were suppressed. Everything is well-backed up by Scripture and the Greek or Hebrew translations. The only reason for not giving a full five-star review, is just a personal belief system - I didn't agree with every angle he came from, but overall, the book is a must read for every searching Christian who wants to experience authentic church life and is questioning the status quo. I also would have liked a bit more direction on how to start an organic church, but I suppose I will get that in the next book. "

    " I'm reading this book to review it for PRISM magazine (esa-online.org/prism) and I am blown away, so far (I'm only on chapter two!), by the new paradigm shift in thinking about how church should -- and could -- be. Think Jesus and his first-century believers and how they practiced church. There was no hierarchy, no sole pastor, no worship service in which the majority of people sat back to watch or listen. It was participatory, spontaneous, and people were okay to interrupt one another if they had a moment of clarity or insight (let's call it prophecy). Pretty radical and different from what is experienced now in church. The Word of God never fails, but religious tradition can stop it if mankind clings to the latter rather than the former... "

    " Frank brings a different And needed perspective of church but the book seems to be written to push an agenda. He uses many fallacies and an incomplete spectrum of scripture. Very frustrating to read. I would not recommend this book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Matthew | 12/29/2013

    " A lot of good thoughts that are making me think, but I don't plan to throw the baby out with the bathwater. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Haije | 12/27/2013

    " Viola's ideas are interesting. He put the finger where it hurts in the church. Some biblical exegesis could be better although. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rob Yackley | 12/15/2013

    " A solid and rather passionate apologetic for creating and multiplying house churches vs. spectator-ish churches. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cristi | 11/24/2013

    " You'll never feel the same about a "church building"...this book provided some REALLY great food for thought! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 James B | 9/22/2013

    " Yes, I own a copy and you can borrow it. "

    " This book has been revised and replaced by "Reimagining Church." "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Francesco | 11/3/2011

    " Follow-up to "Pagan Christianity?" by the same author. Do not read the first without this one. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Glesnertod | 4/22/2011

    " What does the Bible have to say about how the Church should congregate? Lets find out. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laura Rogers | 1/13/2011

    " This is the practical application to think about after reading, "Pagan Christianity" (by the same author). So far, I am very taken with it and feel that it puts into words my own experiences with organic church. "

    " eerste deel alvast heel inspirerend, tweede deel over authority heeft studie nodig, ben bezig :) "

    " More thought provoking ideas from Frank Viola. Worth reading but ... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jennifer | 11/8/2009

    " Fantastic! Enormous research to show the church of today doesn't even resemble the church of Jesus in the New Testament. "
