There are many ways of measuring the impact of a church on its community and the world at large. Here's one you don't often see: A leading management authority cited Ebenezer's Coffee House, a project of Capitol Hill-based National Community Church, as a prime example of what organizations should do to connect with their neighbors.
He said many Christians are the equivalent of "rim-huggers, hiking the Grand Canyon from rim to rim, they've seen it, but they haven't really experienced it," and that the book is an "invitation to hike into that canyon, to go a little deeper."
"They aren't looking for half a Gospel," Mr. Batterson said. "They don't want a watered-down, dumbed-down version. They want something they can give their life to. That's what Jesus put on the table: a call to die to self and to come alive in the way that He intentioned."
