A best-selling author and pastor
at New Hope Christian Fellowship in Honolulu, one of the nation’s
fastest-growing churches, Wayne Cordeiro lays out a strategic framework for
pursuing change and improvement, in The Irresistible Church: 12 Traits of a
Church Heaven Applauds.
With a foreword by Willow Creek’s
Bill Hybels, Cordeiro’s book defines an irresistible church as a body of believers
that is “alluring, magnetic and relentless in its persuasion.” It is an
attractive community that cannot be ignored. Cordeiro outlines a dozen
traits of an irresistible church, including that it continuously learns,
hungers for the presence of God and follows a plan.
Each chapter concludes with an
action item, and Cordeiro includes a study guide with discussion questions and
Bible studies. This work will make an excellent yearlong curriculum or simply serve
as a tool to get small groups or church leadership talking. Readers will
appreciate Cordeiro’s humble, God-dependent insights and his emphasis on making
church irresistible to God, not only to people.
