Customer Reviews for David C. Cook Think Orange

David C. Cook Think Orange

Former family ministry director Reggie Joiner looks at what would happen if the church and families both decided that they could no longer do business as usual, but instead combined their efforts and began to work off the same page for the sake of the kids.

Written to support the Orange Conference and Tour, Think Orange shows church leaders how to make radical changes so they can:

  • engage parents in an integrated strategy;
  • synchronize the home and church around a clear message;
  • recruit mentors to become partners with the family;
  • provoke parents and kids to fight for their relationship with each other; and
  • mobilize the next generation to be the church.

I recently started reading the book "Think Orange" by Reggie Joiner. It talked about the power of combining church (yellow) and family (red) to produce a more powerful force (orange) than either could be alone. After a funny and offbeat introduction, Reggie begins his dicussions with some "Orange-ology". He explains that "The premise of this book is simple: As long as churches do only what they are doing, they will get only results they are presently getting." The same goes for the family. There are failures in both homes and churches -- churches are losing influence and families are disintegrating -- so what is the solution? Step up the force on both sides? Or how about combining forces for a whole new way of thinking? This is Thinking Orange. This is not another "family based ministry" approach. This is a way of thinking that could lead to radical and controversial changes. Many churches and families are already working on the same thing -- trying to raise good and Christ-centered kids. But, as Reggie explains "working on the same thing at the same time is not as effective as working on the same thing at the same time with the same strategy" (p26). This book is so full of new things to think about and ponder, it's good if you take it slow and steady. Journal as you read -- because you'll want to incorporate the things Reggie is sharing. You can get a little bogged down in all the things Reggie is sharing at times, but keep going -- you'll be glad you did. A great resource.
