We have been working to secure resources that will further the movement and we are glad to send out this update to let you know what we have that is new.

We aim to empower ordinary Christians to accomplish extraordinary works with the powerful gifts given by Jesus. All of our resources are focused to that end.

We do not endorse every thought on every page of these resources, nor do we necessarily endorse the author or his/her ministry simply by offering their book on our site. In the same vein, we will not remove a helpful resource simply because we disagree on some items in the book or because the author has written something else that we would not include among our resources.

NEW to CMAResources

ReJesus coverReJesus: A Wild Messiah for a Missional Church.
by Michael Frost & Alan Hirsch

Just Released!

"How has it come about that the development of Christianity and the church has given birth to a society, a civilization, a culture that are completely opposite to what we read in the Bible, to what is indisputably the text of the law, the prophets, Jesus and Paul?" So adduces Michael Frost and Alan Hirsch from the introduction of their newest book citing philosopher Jacques Ellul.

In ReJesus, Frost & Hirsch examine the practice of everyday Christian spirituality and ultimately ask if what we practice today is what Jesus passed down to his first century followers. The authors note that many institutionalized forms of Christianity have traded the radical way of Jesus for the stability of outward religious expression. Frost & Hirsch issue a call to the church, therefore, to refocus its spiritual practice upon the true Author and Foundation of our faith.

Organic Leadershship coverOrganic Leadership: Leading Naturally Right Where You Are
by Neil Cole

Pre-Order now//Released February 2009

What are the weeds that hinder the natural growth of godly leadership? Are programs, people, and money truly the signs of a successful church? Where can you find an unlimited source of leaders? How do you mentor others so that they multiply? In Organic Leadership, Neil Cole asks these questions and more, boldly challenging many of the ideas about leadership and church life that we all take for granted.

Pagan Christianity coverPagan Christianity: Exploring the Roots of our Church Practices
by George Barna & Frank Viola - Revised and Updated

Have you ever wondered why we Christians do what we do for church every Sunday morning? Why do we "dress up" for church? Why does the pastor preach a sermon each week? Why do we have pews, steeples, choirs, and seminaries? This volume reveals the startling truth: most of what Christians do in present-day churches is not rooted in the New Testament, but in pagan culture and rituals developed long after the death of the apostles. Coauthors Frank Viola and George Barna support their thesis with compelling historical evidence in the first-ever book to document the full story of modern Christian church practices.

reimaginging churchReimagining Church: Pursuing the Dream of Organic Christianity
by Frank Viola

Reimagining Church is the second half of the argument carrying on theme of Pagan Christianity. Both books can be likened unto a puzzle. Pagan Christianity demonstrates that the picture on the box has been wrong, and that's why the pieces haven't been fitting together. Reimagining Church presents a fresh vision of the picture on the box that's rooted in the teachings of Jesus and the apostles. Pagan Christianity is the deconstructive side of the argument; Reimagining Church is the constructive side. Both books go together, forming a compelling and insightful vision of the church after God's own heart.

Exiles coverExiles: Living Missionally in a Post-Christian Culture
by Michael Frost

Exiles presents a biblical, Christian worldview for the people who are not at home in the traditional church or in the secular world. As exiles of both, they must create their own worldview that integrates their Christian beliefs with the contemporary world. Exiles seeks to integrate all aspects of life and decision-making and to develop the characteristics of a Christian life lived intentionally within emerging (postmodern) culture. It presents a plea for a dynamic, life-affirming, robust Christian faith that can be lived successfully in the post-Christian world of twenty-first century Western society. This book will present a Christian lifestyle that can be lived in non-religious categories and be attractive to not-yet Christians.
