An Army of Ordinary People contains the key to explosive, transformational, 21st century evangelism. Renowned church planter Felicity Dale shares stories of how God has always used—and is still using—ordinary believers to carry out his work in simple ways throughout the world. Some of these stories are dramatic—people being led to the Lord by the friends who counseled them through drug addictions and criminal pasts. Some are everyday—a dad spending his Sunday teaching Bible lessons to his kids, or a couple inviting their neighbors over to dinner and a spiritual discussion. But in each of them, there is a light bulb moment, when someone just like you thinks I can do that! And as a result, the gospel is spreading . . . and lives are being changed.
I honestly don't know how to review this book and I have struggle on how to rate this one. The book, An Army of Ordinary People, by Felicity Dale, simply tells stories of different house churches and describes different struggles and victories faced by those who join, lead, or start them. The main problem that I had with this book was that it seemed, and remember this is just my honest opinion, that the Church as you know it was not good enough. That in her opinion it was just when two or more in a group were gathered together. She never stated that there had to be prayer, communion, or Bible studies. However, her writing was good, the stories were moving and she did an excellent job of offering a look into the basics of the house church movement.
Finally, I must say that I don't know if I would recommend this book or not.
I received a FREE copy of this book from Tyndale House Publishers in exchange for my fair and honest review of this book.
