Hebraic Church - Thinking differently

ISBN 9780993191046 222 pages
Hebraic Church? Now there’s a phrase designed to upset or confuse just about everyone. Yet being Hebraic is not what many in the Church imagines it to be. In fact it could be nothing less than the key for true restoration and revival.
It is the author’s opinion that the failure of recent Church initiatives to get ‘back to basics’ is because doing things differently can’t be sustained unless there is a corresponding move to think differently. There’s no way we can take a Hebraic model (the early Church) and get it to work in a 21st century culture where the Greek model still reigns supreme.
With his customary humour, pacey style and shrewd insights, Steve Maltz examines seven areas where the Church has gone askew and suggests practical solutions to re-align the Church with the ‘original model’.
"...The author is clear that Hebraic Church is not a bid for a new denomination, nor should it be confused with one! Rather it is just a name, a convenient way of expressing the restoration of the Jewish roots of Christianity...
He concludes with a useful 'mission statement'. Hebraic Church provides "an environment where we can all meet God individually, discover and exercise all of our gifts (not just spiritual gifts) and callings and to worship the living God, with the correct application of His Word and an acknowledgement of the debt the Church has to the Jewish people, including a desire to bless them" (p202)."
Paul Luckcraft, Prophecy Today
"Encouraging reading for anyone who wants to find how the church has lost the Jewish nature of its founder and its ministry."
