:
Some pastors preach boring sermons. Some church music is dull. But here's the thing: If Jesus had been boring, the disciples wouldn't have followed him and the Pharisees wouldn't have killed him.

So if you're bored, don't waste another minute. If your church service feels like a failed pep rally that never leads to the actual game, then it's time for you to follow Jesus onto the field where the opposition is real and the stakes are extraordinary. It will get messy. It won't always be comfortable. But you'll make a difference. And you'll discover that nobody's bored out there. Nobody.

Insightful
4 stars By Jacqui, Oct 01 2016
As Andy Stanley tells you in the forward, this book is written in two parts. The first part is on ways and how to reach out to people who are not easy to reach out to. He explains that it isn't going to be an instant fix and will probably get very messy. I found this section really helpful. It helped me to see that in reality loving people like Jesus did is going to take time, energy, lots of patience and most likely be messy and not straight forward. I found that it gave me a peace as it helped me have more realistic expectations.    
It is written with lots of personal examples which makes it easy to understand the teaching.
The second part is examples of people who have moved towards the mess and started organisations that you can get involved with. I didn't find this as helpful as they are not Australian but it was encouraging to read what people have done.
