Jesus Surprising Strategy – by David Drum
You’re likely familiar with Jesus’ prayer that His followers would be one. Less well-known is how strategic and timely this prayer is, as well as how instructional the prayer is about the kind of unity Jesus is praying for. Combine Jesus’ prayer with the Apostle Paul’s citywide analogy, and you have a gift that provides powerful direction for how the body of Christ is supposed to operate in every city – direction that could provide the very societal transformation we so desperately seek and need.
Unity for any group requires work and intentionality. Building on Jesus’ prayer and Paul’s analogy, Jesus’ Surprising Strategy examines five levels of unity, each building on the previous one, and each providing a practical, biblical means for the roles you can play to fulfill Jesus’ prayer in our day, in your relationships, and in your city. It concludes with a case study of how this is beginning to be realized in Tucson, Arizona.
David Drum encourages, instructs, and reveals his personal journey toward seeing Christian unity as a mandate worthy of your very best effort.
