Thomas Nelson Crossing Over: Real Change, Real Courage, Real Transformation

Crossing Over is about radical change. As radical and potentially painful as escaping from Egypt and crossing over the Jordan into the Promised Land. Yet the prize is commensurate with the pain, and the promises are as big as the problems of making such a bold move.

Paul Scanlon led his own church through such an extreme makeover. Using the steps illustrated in this book, Scanlon totally reinvented his good but slowly dying church, and he transformed it into the thriving outreach center it is today. Now we can do the same; even though Crossing Over is directed at particular kinds of leaders and churches, this book carries a message for all Christians.

Many leaders and churches---many believers---have had a great past but have no future without a radical transformation. To them Pastor Scanlon says: your day doesn't have to be over; your time needn't be past. The present struggles in your life or church may not be announcing the end of your ministry but the beginning of something new. Whether you need to change your business, your church, or yourself, it takes courage and determination to expel old ways of thinking. To challenge your sense of comfort. To step out into unknown territory. To truly "cross over." But doing so will take you to your best life yet!

This is one of the most powerful books I've read in a while!!!!This is truly God's message to His people for such a time as this.I have been giving this book to all of my pastor friends. I'm just so very sorry that none of Pastor Scanlon's other books are available in the US. I've looked and can only find them on his site in the UK. WOW!!!Saints this it! Get it, Read it and let's start CROSSING OVER!!!
