Book: Transformation: How Glocal Churches Transform Lives and the World by Bob Roberts Jr.

Rating: Great

Lesson Learned: It’s all about Glocal

Glocal is the merging of Global and Local. Roberts wants people to think both simultaneously not one then the other; our world demands this unique insight. The book is about Northwood and how it moved from being a mega-church to a church doing mega things in the world. Lots of people can be thankful for good friends and family, I get to be thankful for growing up in a church that demanded the most from its members and did everything it could from becoming a Sunday experience. Part of the equation was doing massive work in Vietnam. Through Northwood I have been able to go to Vietnam and do such things as plow ground for a clinic to meet with heads of state. For you to get what God is doing with Northwood this is an essential read. This book explains how Northwood ended up in Vietnam and what the impact has been on the church and its members.
