The Tangible Kingdom

The Tangible Kingdom by Hugh Halter & Matt Smay
Creating Incarnational Community
The Posture and Practices of Ancient Church Now

I love this book and ideas presented and practiced...I long for this kind of church community. Here are the dog-ears and highlights:

  • pg. 10 - returning to something ancient, revolutionary...the Jesus community
  • pg. 30 - "doing church differently is like rearranging chairs on the Titanic"
  • pg. 31 - stop trying to keep the hostiles out and influence doesn't happen by extraction
  • pg. 40 - the coerciveness of advertising
  • pg. 59 - the Sunday morning production
  • pg. 60 - the problem with evangelical mission
  • pg. 144 - Henri Nouwen quote on commitment to God
  • pg. 167 - Bible Study 5 questions
  1. What did you like about what we just read?
  2. What didn't you like?
  3. Was there anything you didn't understand?
  4. What did you learn about God?
  5. Regardless of where your faith is right now, if you were to apply what we learned about God to something in your life this week, what would that look like?
  • pg. 178 - the drawing power of those who smell like Jesus
