From the Back Cover:

Praise for the permanent revolution

"How can the church in the West reimagine itself after 1700 years of living within Christendom? Alan Hirsch and Tim Catchim address reestablishing the building blocks of the five-dimensional ministries of apostle, prophet, evangelist, shepherd, and teacher. While a number of books have addressed this radical challenge, none have done so with such depth, comprehensiveness, scholarly engagement, and prophetic forthrightness. It could provide the urgently needed catalyst for the revitalization of a tired and entrenched church."
--Eddie Gibbs, senior professor, School of Intercultural Studies, Fuller Theological Seminary

"At a time when being 'apostolic' has great appeal, this book is a biblical reality check. Alan Hirsch, along with Tim Catchim, brings his trademark skill of integrating theological, organizational, and sociological insights, as well as his good-natured love of the gospel and God's people. This is sure to become a standard text in the field of church leadership studies."
--Michael Frost, author, The Road to Missional and The Shaping of Things to Come

"This book, written by one of the foremost missional thinkers of our day, addresses what I believe to be the most necessary and neglected of subjects--the equipping gifts of Ephesians 4:11. It opens the Pandora's box of missional inquiry so the rest of us can try and get our minds on a subject of wide consequence that will not likely settle back down."
--Neil Cole, founder, Church Multiplication Associates; author, Organic Church, Church 3.0, and Journeys to Significance

"Church leaders are increasingly aware that the big shift for us is to move from managing an institution to leading a movement. Our learning curve is steep. We need help in reimagining and redesigning our leadership beliefs and practices. This volume helps us do exactly that."
--Reggie McNeal, author, The Present Future, Missional Renaissance, and Missional Communities
