Check out this review of Timmis and Chester’s The World We All Want (authors of Total Church). The reviewer highlights three mains strengths to this evangelistic approach: 1) gospel presented in the wider context of the Biblical story 2) emphasis on conversion into community, not making “the church” optional 3) Jesus centered. Here is an excerpt of the review:
I particularly liked the manner in which Godís people are described in session seven as ďa waiting community, a proclaiming community, a loving community.Ē Itís been reported recently that many people on the street are cool with Jesus, but have a problem with the church. TWWAW demonstrates that you canít have the bridegroom without his bride, nipping that particular problem in the bud.
