God's Energy - Volume 3


Transforming Christianity

In the third volume of his Energy Trilogy, Christian A. Schwarz presents brand-new research findings that reveal a dramatic participation shift in churches all over the world. Many of the approaches that used to work successfully until a few years ago, don’t work any longer.

Based on the biblical teaching on God’s energy, the book introduces compelling concepts that enable individuals and groups to approach transformation processes in altogether new ways. It can help the church recalibrate its spiritual and theological compass in order to effectively address the new challenges of our time.
