Dan Kimball Foreword by. In Off-Road Disciplines, Earl Creps reveals that the on-road practices of prayer and Bible reading should be bolstered by the other kinds of encounters with God that occur unexpectedly--complete with the bumps and bruises that happen when you go "off-road. Earl Creps explores twelve central spiritual disciplines--six personal and six organizational--that Christian leaders of all ages and denominations need if they are to change themselves and their churches to reach out to the culture around them.

Written at a time when Baby Boomers and Gen Xers were struggling to coexist in the workplace and the church, and the talk was of moderns and postmoderns, there is much that we can learn as we through our current cultural changes.
Of the two sections, I found the organizational disciplines more beneficial perhaps because of where I'm currently at in my journey. I don't take exception to any of the personal disciplines death, truth, perspective, learning, witness, or humility or to the supportin Written at a time when Baby Boomers and Gen Xers were struggling to coexist in the workplace and the church, and the talk was of moderns and postmoderns, there is much that we can learn as we through our current cultural changes.
I don't take exception to any of the personal disciplines death, truth, perspective, learning, witness, or humility or to the supporting arguments or examples provided within. These disciplines are routed a key foundational concept -- "missional leadership derives not from methods or strategies but from the work of the Holy Spirit to rearrange one's interior life. This then prepares us to go out, to be sent. It's not that the personal discipline section has no merit, it' actually of great value. It's just that I have spent far more time on the personal disciplines than on the organizational disciplines and find myself shifting into that domain more within my ministry.
There was a sentence in the harmony discipline that really struck a chord with me -- "I have met representatives of both camps who evangelize more for their perspective than they do for the gospel". The author further states that "this divergence can motivate all sides to hold on even tighter to their points of view. Likewise, the discipline of reflection becomes more and more critical as we work through difficult dilemmas and need to discern what's scriptural and what's preference; where do we adapt and where do we stand firm.

He went to them. A missional life means Jesus sending us outward, as the Father sent Him. May 29, Martin rated it did not like it. This is a book of doubtful value. My main critique is that Earl fails to see the danger in postmodern thought but rather than explaining that, as many other Christian authors do, he embraces it. Jul 05, Matt Markarian rated it really liked it. Great view of culture.
