A manifesto of hope for the under-churched, over-churched, and no-churched.

(Irv) Brendlinger dares you to see the Church, not as a building or meeting, not as something you go to – but as something you ARE. What if Jesus has no hands but your hands, and no feet but your feet? Brendlinger loves the Church with the honest love of Augustine who said, “The church is a whore but she’s my mother”… and he invites us all to be the change we want to see in the Church.

In the words of this handbook you can hear the groaning of Jesus, that we might “be one as God is one” – after all Jesus is coming back for a Bride… not a harem. May this book move us closer to the Church God is longing for.”
