The Weekly Hit List: November 16, 2012

The Space Between by Eric Jacobsen, author of Sidewalks in the Kingdom, was reviewed by Comment Magazine.

“It is a fact that fast-growing churches in North America for the past few decades have been mostly suburban, mostly large, and mostly located on huge parcels of land surrounded by even huger parking lots. Reading The Space Between questions all these practices, from a theological as well as a practical point of view.

“This is a book that was needed fifty years ago or more, but as Anthony Hopkins says in The Mask of Zorro, ‘When the pupil is ready, the teacher will come.’

“Perhaps in this day, in our time, the pupil, the church, is ready to hear what the teacher, Eric Jacobsen, has to say.

His is a prophetic voice that needs to be heard.”
