Ross Parsley
"Messy Church"
David C. Cook, 2012, 978-1-4347-9937-1, $14.99
When God created the church, He didn’t build a corporation. He created a family. Our culture is dying for the kind of community that only the church can provide-if we are living as the family God intended-protecting one another, extending grace, and loving unconditionally. In Messy Church, Pastor Ross Parsley shares his compelling vision for a better way of life. It’s called church-and it’s a place where no one gets left behind. www.davidccook.com
