Neil Hudson has been a full-or-part time local church leader for over 25 years. For eleven years he taught at Regents Theological College, but now works on the Imagine Project at The London Institute for Contemporary Christianity (LICC), a project designed to encourage churches to help whole-life disciples make a difference wherever they are. He is also a leader of the Salford Elim Church.
The idea of whole-life discipleship could hardly be more important. This stimulating book is both thoughtful and immensely practical. I highly recommend it to anyone with a leadership role.' 'Beautifully engaging, elegantly simple, gloriously practical. This isn't a seven-step programme, but a traveller's guide for a great journey - the transformation of church culture to whole-life disciple-making. I hope and pray many will use it.' 'Calling people into whole life discipleship: seeing Jesus everywhere, accessible and applicable is not an easy call. Disciple-making is hard, worthwhile, adventurous living and Neil Hudson's masterly title will resource and inspire your obedience in the mission of Jesus in your world. I particularly love the underlying culture changing dynamic of Neil's writing. This is the spinal core of this new work calling us to attitude, action and transformation. As a pastor-theologian-leader Neil has gifted the church with something of lasting worth in transforming what can often feel dull, safe and stuck in our church communities. Logic, theology and practical steps abound. You'll often be saying 'a-ha', as few books offer such clear truth-telling, hope and actionable examples. Essential reading for all church leaders and useful for all Christians everywhere. This could be the best LICC (London Institute of Contemporary Christianity) title yet, and a prophetic catalyst for a nation of believers longing to get out of the limited straitjackets of our present existence into the spacious, risky, faithful and fruitful life of Jesus-following. Free of guilt, cliches and predictable step-plans... this is full of wisdom and already one of my best reads of the year. It could resource a revolution! Simple, practical and compelling.'
