Longwood, FL (PRWEB) April 17, 2008
Church, are you ready to obey God's mandate to get outside your four walls and be a living body of love and power to the mass of humanity that is in desperate need of a shepherd? In the kingdom, there is only one church. We are all one in the body of Christ. Our hurting world is crying for help and seeking a church that is real, relational, and relevant. In Churches Without Walls: The Mandate of Isaiah 58 (paperback, 978-1-60477-967-7; hardcover, 978-1-60477-968-4), John Dammarell rightly identifies a vibrant, living church as the key to community transformation and the agent of hope to those who are suffering. Churches Without Walls inspires us to transform the walls we have constructed around our faith into bridges so that we can reach out to our world.
Dammarell knows and lives what he writes about, and his book cuts through religious posturing and points the reader to the heart of God. Dammarell states, "Want to be significant and not just successful? This book will ignite your life, your church, and your business by revealing the true meaning of Isaiah 58: to be a bridge into the hearts of those in need."
John L. Dammarell, Ph.D., is the executive director of Liberty Road Foundation, a charity that connects businesses with non-profits by emphasizing the importance of mobilizing their finances and their employees to build communities of hope and to provide programs for social, economic and spiritual development. John served as a senior pastor in Kent, Washington, from 1976 to 1992, and also served as the community relations director for City Ministries, a food distribution ministry of The City Church in Kirkland, Washington, from 1997 to 2007.
