I shared some big news with the my Twitter friends a few days ago. I received confirmation this week that Andy Stanley, senior pastor of North Point Community Church, has agreed to provide the foreword for Killing Cockroaches. Here’s an excerpt from his foreword:
“There’s a temptation to do church for those who are already going to heaven. You know what I’m talking about. If we’re not careful, we’ll begin to make decisions about programming and teaching to keep those who are already here at the expense of those who need to hear. That’s not God’s design. He wants us to communicate that people matter to him. He wants us to talk that way and act that way and worship that way. It’s counter to how we’ve always done church, though. It’s also not easy.”
Stay tuned for more updates on the book. It looks like you’ll have an opportunity to provide feedback on proposed covers in the next several days. I’m looking forward to your thoughts.
