DR. TONY EVANS is the founder and president of The Urban Alternative, ^a national ministry dedicated to restoring hope in personal lives, families, churches ^and communities. Dr. Evans also serves as senior pastor of Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship ^in Dallas. He is a bestselling author of numerous books and his radio program, The ^Alternative with Dr. Tony Evans, is heard on more than 500 stations every day. ^For more information, visit: tonyevans.org.

Tony Evans defines the church in vibrant terms: it is a continuation of ^Christ's incarnation. As such, it is the most important spiritual institution in ^human history. He helps the church discover its identity and purpose for existence, ^and provides believers a biblically healthy context in which to grow and live out ^their lives. This book will inspire you to help make your place of worship all that ^God intends it to be.


All of us are familiar with the story of Humpty Dumpty, the figure from ^the children's nursery rhyme whose world was shattered after he had a great fall. ^He called on the best his world had to offer to address his problem-"all the kings ^horses and all the king's men." But the tragedy of the story is that none of these ^human powers could put Humpty Dumpty's life and world back together again. Apparently ^Mr. Dumpty had no biblically functioning church available to help him, because if ^he had he would not have had to call on the king in the first place. Now its one ^thing when a nursery rhyme character cannot find the help he needs to repair his ^shattered world, even when his problem is being attended to by the highest authorities ^the culture has to offer. But it's another thing altogether when real people in ^the real world discover that all the king's horses and all the king's men-can't ^fix society's deepest problems and address the people's deepest needs. This is where ^the church comes in, because the church is the most important institution on earth. ^The church, and only the church, has been commissioned by the sovereign Lord to ^be His representative agency in history.
