In this challenging and thought-provoking book, author James David Montgomery points out that although churches dot almost every street corner in America, many have strayed from God's original design. He believes too many churches today stand in stark contrast to the first century church that turned the world upside down. Rev. Montgomery calls on Christians of every denomination to return to their roots and rediscover what made the early church great. He reminds us of the building-shaking, great-grace, fear-of-God-preaching, Pharisee-defying, souls-added-to-the-church-daily explosions of God's glory in the book of Acts.
“Will the real Church please stand” is a call for the Church to recognize what is happening because of its complacency. Social, economic, spiritual and especially moral standards are falling to an all time low. Only God and the Church can reverse this regression. Jesus said He would build His Church. With Jesus as its head, the Church is the most powerful force on earth and can turn this downward spiral around. This book is written to inspire you with confidence and compassion to be one who will choose to cause positive change.

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is an influential church in the United States and beyond. Yet, it remains a mysterious entity to those who are not members. Now we find the church contains mysteries unknown to even those who call it their spiritual home. In Will the Real Mormons Stand Up and Sound the Alarm? author Vern Porter shares his discovery of the potentially seamier side of the church. After nearly twenty years in the church, Porter was doing part-time missionary work when he ran across members obsessed with polygamy and racism. When he confronted them, the treatment he received led him to reexamine anti-Mormon accusations he had experienced from Baptists. For several years, he studied the Scriptures and history of the church, including the Journal of Discourses, a twenty-six-volume record of conference talks from the early 1850s to the mid-1880s. As he researched the church, it became obvious to him that its scholars and leaders had covered up details of Mormon doctrine and history from the church's early days in Utah. Although he left the church for twenty-five years, he returned after experiencing some hard-to-forget dreams. Though most of his friends received him with open arms, some tried to drive him away. In Will the Real Mormons Stand Up and Sound the Alarm? Porter pulls back the curtain and shares some of his real concerns about the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, especially concerning more radical members and beliefs.

When author and theologian John P. Burgess first travelled to Russia, he was hoping to expand his theological horizons and explore the rebirth of the Orthodox Church since the fall of Communism. But what he found changed some fundamental assumptions about his own tradition of North American Protestantism. In this book, Burgess looks to Orthodoxy to help the North American Protestant churchwhich has seen membership decline to below 50% of the population for the first timefind new ways to worship, teach, and spread its message. He considers Orthodox rituals, icons, the attention to saints and miracles, monastic life, and Eucharistic theology and practice. He then explores whether and how Protestants can use these elements of Orthodoxy to help revitalize the mainline church. Burgess helpfully demonstrates the ways in which Orthodoxy calls us back to what is most important in Christian faith and life.
