Relevant Church...

This book was a collection of short essays written by pastors about what they were doing to create environments where people can passionately pursue Jesus and live out their faith in the midst of others.

If you're familiar with any of the individuals who contributed to the book you will constantly feel like it was all taking place 3-4 years ago. Nonetheless it does a good job of showing a multitude of different ways that church can be lived out.
While I'd like to say "I'd go to some of these churches", I know there is something seriously wrong with that statement. But I think you get the point.

I really liked the freedom for creativity in these communities. It's not just church the way church people want it. I know exactly what you're saying about going to these churches. I found myself saying the same thing... then slapping myself for saying it. It's just a lot easier to read a book about the innovative things people are doing, than to risk ourselves by innovatively leading...
