An Unstoppable Force
Full Product Description
“The vast ocean of the unknown can only be navigated through the compass of an ancient text. The maps that will guide you reflect a noble past, willing decode the present context. The journey you have embarked upon searches not for the world you've known, but for the mysteries of the future.”
With these words relating the future of the Church directly to the Bible, the author opens his book pointing you away from the present stagnation and ‘safe’ theology of past and present culture, towards engaging with Christ in a new and dangerous faith for the future.
In this timely reissue of the 2001 original, the author describes how globalization and massive urbanisation requires every church to do something or risk extinction. The book opens the eyes of those who haven’t noticed or have ignored what’s going on, and reassures the visionary who’s known for a long time that, like the living organism it is, a church has to move with purpose to stay alive.
Yet the duty that the author lays upon the Body of Christ, is to first move back to the past, so we can see the future. McManus challenges the Church to find a radical new vision for itself in the post-modern era by emulating the first century apostles and how 12 individuals and their followers changed the world.
Erwin McManus calls us to re-examine everything about how we do church; challenging you to see God's vision for its mission and purpose with practical ways for your church to find its unique voice and identity to express Christ's love and faith to your culture. With interactive questions in each chapter, he fosters discussion about the life of your church, its focus on Christ, and how it can be the unstoppable, forceful Church that God had in mind.

As the world around us changes at record-speed, An Unstoppable Force imagines a church that embraces change by remaining fully committed to its apostolic calling. Church leaders will discover new ways of engaging communities through vibrant, relevant ministries and clear, innovative communication.
An Unstoppable Force challenges churches to cast aside methods that are broken or atrophied and embrace the future of the Church with vigor. McManus’ prophetic voice outlines a church that is not a refuge from the world, but a refuge to the world. Christians on the forefront of the church movement must be ready to let go of the past and move forward.
- A "force" created to change the world.
- A Church engaged with its community, daring to cut itself free from atrophied practices and programs
- A Church that will flourish in creative and compelling worship.
- A Church that risks reaching out to our jaded culture with "outside the box" expressions of faith and love.
