Descargue una copia gratuita de Caminos Olvidados. Missional thought leader Alan Hirsch is convinced that the inherited formulas for growing the body of Christ do not work anymore. And rather than relying on slightly revised solutions from the past, he sees a vision of the future growth of the church coming about by harnessing the power of the early church—a movement which grew from as few as 25, adherents in AD to up to 20 million years later. Similar meteoric growth has also been recorded in history and is currently being seen in many apostolic movements throughout the world today. How do they do it? From the theological underpinnings to the practical application, Hirsch takes readers through this dynamic mixture of passion, prayer and incarnational practice to rediscover the dormant potential of the modern church in the West.

Shelves: theology This is a book of hope for the church. It has moved past the season in which books on ministry and approach emphasize what has been done wrong and finally gets around to showing new patterns.
Though, these new patterns really reflect old and present patterns. Looking at the early church and the church in China Hirsch examines what he calls the Apostolic Genius, finding the traits and emphases that seem to be at the root of explosive missional movements.
Many times I felt like he was applying principles from the Perspectives course to our own native cultures. Allen Hirsch points back to the early church and the underground church in China as ecclesial models of a different paradigm. That urgency should provoke me and others to do whatever it takes to be effective missionaries in our own context. The first two chapters are beneficial for ANY ministry leader. He gives you a lot to ponder. First of all, this work is remarkably researched. Hirsch is conversant with social sciences, anthropological research, and even biology, and he also speaks from his own dramatic ministry experiences in Australia.
In addition, he is both honest and hopeful. My only complaint would be that he really pulls on a "Euro-centric" narrative of church history, which revolves primarily around Constantine, while the global church stands on a pretty different story. Highly, highly recommended!
