New Frank Viola book
I have read quite a few of Frank Viola's books. Some (Rethinking the Wineskin, Pagan Christianity, Who's Your Covering, The Untold Story of the New Testament Church) have had a profound impact on me. Others (So You Want Start a House Church?, Revolution), not so much. I like what Frank has to say, but don't always like the way he says it. He has a tendancy towards hyperbole. But he also says things that need to be said. It used to be that you could only get Frank's books by ordering them directly from his website, but in the last couple of years his appeal has widened, along with his distribution. This is a good thing because, hyperbolic or not, Frank has an important message.
Frank's latest book is entitled From Eternity to Here. I have a copy, but haven't had a chance to read it yet. It has received endorsements from other Christian thinkers who I really like, such as Greg Boyd, Shane Claiborne and Leonard Sweet.
I've heard that From Eternity to Here is a bit of a departure for Viola. He comes right out and says it is the most important book he has written. When I get a chance to read it, I'll post whether or not I agree. If you've read it, tell me what you think.
If you would like to read it, you can order it at a discount throughout the month of March from Parable.com.
