Fathering Leaders, Motivating MissionChloe Lynch, via The Good Book Stall
This latest offering is much like Devenish’s other writings – packed full of well-considered material ideal for the serious lay reader who wants to explore an area of Christian practice. His assessment of the role of the apostle today is detailed and includes a good mix of Biblical material with personal anecdotes from his extensive experience.
Chapters include a defence of the proposition that the apostolic role continues in today’s church, details of the foundations which apostles are to lay in the churches they serve and an interesting discussion of the intricacies of contextualisation. A final chapter dealing with ‘common questions’ rounds up this book well.
My feelings were mixed about this book. I don’t agree with all that it teaches and do feel that it is very clearly written with an agenda: namely, to be an exposition and defence of the Newfrontiers churches’ stance on apostleship. I also found the style a little too dense at times to be easily readable. However, Devenish’s material is well-researched and thought through; he engages with some scholarship and his work will be a helpful addition to current thinking on apostleship.
