“Steering through Chaos” by Scott Wilson
A book full of insight, experience, and practical application. A MUST READ!!!
As I began to read Scott Wilson’s book, I was not quite sure what to expect. In all honesty, I had never heard of Scott Wilson, so why would I do this? Invest time in a book that I had never heard of that was written by someone I did not know? Simple. Curiousity. As it turns out, Steering through Chaos has been exactly what I needed.
I recently have watched a church body change and morph and begin to get back to the very truth and simplicity that is the gospel. It was out of this curiosity that I read this book. So, in a nutshell, here is a brief review of “Steering through Chaos.”
It seems that Scott Wilson penned this book out of a lot of personal experience, prayer, petition, and seeking to do the will of God. Through any church’s existance, there is push and pull, ebb and flow. Comfort is not something that the Bible points to for followers of Jesus Christ. Scott simply gathers his experiences as a minister and points back to the biblical principles that the church must change and be on the forefront of God’s heart, reaching the lost, the hurting…and challenges the bride of Christ (the church) to return to it’s first love, the true message of the good news that is Jesus Christ.
Whether you are a lay person, a church leader, elder, deacon, pastor of a small group, a mid-sized church, a mega-church, rural church, suburb or city church. This book applies to the whole spectrum. Why? How? Simple. When Jesus calls us to go and make disciples, that means that we will ALL cross paths. So put down your boxing gloves, read “Steering through Chaos” and cry out to God to reveal the vision, the direction, the empowerment, and the people He intends to carry out the ministry He has charged you with.
