Item Description...
Overview
Transformation of the city was the battle cry in the 1990s. What?s happening on the streets today? How far have we come since then? How do apostles fit into the urban landscape? How do they fit into God?s plans?

C. Peter Wagner, our generation?s greatest authority on the apostolic realm, has been writing on these subjects for a number of years. He now brings these topics together in one volume for an insightful look at the spheres of authority that are all around us. Wagner?s most authoritative book yet on apostles, Apostles Today looks at the progress of the New Apostolic Reformation begun in the beginning of the 1990s and continuing today.

This book is a call for apostles to assume their rightful place of work with God to see His will accomplished here on earth. Wagner relates his decades of experiences and those of others, which show the role of apostles not only in the traditional church, but also in the extended church. Apostles Today offers fresh vision for the role of apostles in healthy churches, workplaces and cities.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Creative but not very compelling  Sep 29, 2009
Hoping to find something fresh and missional in here, I was surprised to find something more Charismatic and less about mission work on the edges and more about leadership in big churches and institutional memberships (even a constant tiresome reference to a coalition of apostles!). For some reason, Wagner keeps emphasizing the governing role of apostles, and he reads this into the biblical passages more than shows how they're coming out of them. What I wished to find more stuff about was church planting, taking the gospel into virgin soil and other sorts of "sent" or "sending" aspects that a lot of missional literature is now talking about in reference to the apostolic gift in Ephesians 4:11.

Needless to say, it was a huge letdown to instead find stuff on spiritual covering, large followings, special anointing and authority, and the like that seem to be overly self-congratulatory. His overly-positive treatment didn't seem to match the tenor of what Paul spoke about apostles being misunderstood and fools and the scum of the earth; and nor did Wagner address Paul's actual refusal to draw a salary for himself though he was able to as an apostle.

To be fair though, Wagner is on the right track in going more organic by talking about workplace apostles and going out of the walls of traditional or mega church. But by the time he got there, I was mostly disenchanted with his overly positional take on what I see as a functional gifting. Nevertheless, I was glad to have read this as Wagner is -- for better or for worse -- the most vocal proponent who is setting the tone for what "apostolic" is and does.
 
Wagner wrong, as St. Paul was the last apostle  Feb 16, 2009
Wagner's premise is entirely heretical, as "the apostles" were the selected eyewitnesses of the resurrection of Jesus prior to Christ's ascension to heaven. The one single exception to that is St. Paul, who admits he was an apostle "born out of due time," having been personally chosen by the resurrected Jesus *after* the ascension. But in every case, an apostle was one of the eyewitnesses of the event of the resurrection, and there are no such eyewitnesses beyond St. Paul himself. Don't fall for this "apostles today" error--neither you nor your leader nor excited relative is an "apostle" according to scripture.
 
Insightful  Jul 12, 2008
Review the book or the man?

No doubt in my friends mind, he has excellent qualities as a sincere man of God. My friend has known him in the past from Fuller University.

But, what am I reviewing here? The book I dare say.

The Book offered some insightful thoughts and his personal beliefs as he tells. It was thought provoking and an interesting read.
 
Great General Overview of Apostles  Mar 18, 2008
This book is a Great General overview of the role of the Apostle in Today's Church. I recommend it to anyone that wants to begin learning about the office of Apostle as a first read.
 
YOUNG APOSTLES STAND!  Mar 12, 2008
I have read a number of books on the apostolic. Each has some good and most have some bad. I personally am watchful about the religious spirit manifesting here having seen it before in CPW's books. It seems that some well meaning folks want to control and define who is and who is not an apostle by their own little mix of Bible verses. Apostles are ordained By Jesus Christ Himself or they are likely not apostles at all. Pastors are the biggest danger to a young apostle. Pastors, for the most part, live in a divided house and will resist change and truth in order to maintain their own little kingdom or power base. 'Protecting' the sheep has little or nothing to do with it, if they did the pastor's would be crying out to God something like this. "Oh God send us your APOSTLES AND PROPHETS OUR CITIES ARE DYING." But they don't! Why? Because they are proud, controlling or luke warm and themselves near death etc.
Young apostles stand. If you know that you know you have heard from God then use your authority and move the mountains of religion that the KING of Glory may once again come back in to His house.
Do NOT let another minister rob you of your crown. They can and will.
Love never fails,
JE
