Wow, this book was amazing. I’m not sure I can fit it all into this review. If you grew up in a Word church, some of the material may not be new to you. However, the light Zach Neese shines on known principles illuminates and offers a refreshing perspective to churchy jargon and spiritual practice. So, let me just jump right in.
Every since I was a kid there was always an undercurrent in church about revival. From bringing revival to our schools to experiencing revival in our churches, it was something I wanted to be a part of and desired for God to work through me. In college, we found ourselves in the midst of revival from Canada’s Vineyard movement to the Brownsville Revival in Pensacola, FL. I had the opportunity my sophomore year in college to go to Brownsville for a weekend. Years later, a friend who played bass in the band for the ministry I was a part of gave me this book: Another Wave of Revival by Frank Bartleman – retitled recently to Azusa Street. Probably 10 years later, I sat down to read it last month.
I finished the book Work Clean by Dan Charnas. It was a well written book about the behavior and habits of top chefs and how they organize to deliver excellent service each and every day. It is taking their principles of organization called mise-en-place and applying them to our business and every day life.
