Synopsis

This book is both timely and needed. Provocative, yes, because the message is essential at this decisive 'hinge moment' in time. -- Philip Yancey

The Way Back is the way forward. -- Erwin McManus

The Way Back is a much-needed wake up call for the Church... we've wandered for far too long.-- Christine Caine

On a dusty hilltop, Jesus once kickstarted his church with a ragtag group of fishermen who called themselves The Way. Truth be told, the builders of Christianity were a bunch of nobodies.  They were powerless and flawed and sometimes petty.  But they were committed.  They were all-in.

Within a remarkably short time, The Way became the world's most influential religious faith -- a force in culture, politics, literature, science, philanthropy, and the arts. Against impossible odds, that group of nobodies astonished the world. Two thousand years later -- by any measure -- Christianity is retreating on all fronts. The Way has lost its way.

In The Way Back, media and marketing experts Phil Cooke and Jonathan Bock take a hard look at Christians today and reveal that we, as a salesforce, have lost our faith in our product. Where's the passion, the excitement, and the commitment that two thousand years ago made such improbable and staggering growth possible? The Way Back will inspire and equip you to learn from that wonderful group of nobodies, so that you too can astonish the world once more.
