Letters To The House Church Movement
SKU: 509

by Rad Zdero

God is raising up the simple, organic, house church movement. And this book gives you, for the first time, a real-life inside look at the controversies, struggles, victories, and personalities emerging from within this revolution.

This book is a collection of real letters to real people facing real issues. This 10-year collection of over 40 real-life letters will challenge, persuade, and encourage. They address theological issues and practical problems. They were sent to friends, acquaintances, strangers, radicals, and critics. This book will not just satisfy your curiosity about today's house church movement, but it will propel you to complete the task to which Jesus Christ has called you.



"Rad is one of those that has taken the time to... give us all a sort of house church FAQ that unzips and unpacks the current revolution and makes it more tangible than ever." Wolfgang Simson, Author of Houses that Change the World

"Rad Zdero has labored to usher in a new/old paradigm in church life... a courageous, candid, and vulnerable publication of the letters that have chronicled his journey... an important work..." David Garrison, Ph.D., Author of Church Planting Movements

"I am thrilled that Rad Zdero has released this series of insightful letters into book form... a timely, biblical, poignant yet gracious response to real-life concerns... Highly recommended!" Andrew Jones Blogger and founder, Boaz Project

When I want advice about house churches or the house church movement, I to go Rad Zdero. Rad is not only knowledgeable about the house church movement, he also offers clear explanations about what it is and how it works. Rad is also a practitioner, as youll discover in this hands-on, practical book. Joel Comiskey, Ph.D., Founder of Joel Comiskey Group

Letters have always been a powerful means to spread ideas, whether New Testament epistles, presidential correspondences, or fictional letters from Uncle Screwtape to Wormwood, his younger demon apprentice. In this work, we are allowed access to the mind, wit, and passion of Rad Zdero, one of the key leaders in the global house church movement, and there is much to learn. His entries about women in leadership and apostolic leadership alone are well worth the purchase of this valuable resource. This book provides great insights into church but also sets an example for us of how to graciously respond with balance and integrity to people that seem to stand against what God is doing today.
