"What we need is not revival but reformation. Revival will put more people in the pews. Reformation will transform the thinking and the behaviour of the church" (p. 10). This introduction by Brother Andrew sets the tone for a book which demands transformational and reformational thinking in dispersing the traditional approach to the persecuted church from the point of view of our strength and their weakness. By using a well balanced recipe of testimonies, first-hand experiences and key Scripture verses, the two authors explore six areas where the persecuted church can teach the church in freedom what reformational thinking should look like: (1) God and his word, (2) worship and the church, (3) prayer and dependence, (4) community, culture and evangelism, (5) leadership, authority and power, (6) generosity and stewardship.
