Item Description...
Overview
Every believer is a precious part of Christ's body. When even one is missing, the church lacks power and is less than whole. Whether we're victims, perpetrators, or innocent bystanders, we're called by God to seek restoration. And when one of God's sheep goes missing we have no choice. We must Bring 'Em Back Alive

Publishers Description
It was a story Jesus liked to tell. If a man owned a hundred sheep and one of them wandered away, he would, without hesitation, leave the ninety-nine and search for the one. And when he found that lost sheep he would celebrate with great joy. In the same way, Jesus concluded, our Father in heaven-like the shepherd-is unwilling for any of his sheep to be lost.
Yet all too often God's sheep do wander from the flock. Sometimes, for reasons that are hard to discern, they stray on their own. Other times they're driven away, perhaps wounded by an unkind word or thoughtless deed. In "Bring 'Em Back Alive" author Dave Burchett shows us the importance of bringing these lost and wounded lambs back to the fold-or, when we're the ones who wandered, becoming willing to return. He explains, step-by-step, how to replenish the spiritual strength of Christ's body. And he reminds us that we, like the shepherd, can know the joy that comes when a lost sheep returns home.
Every believer is a precious part of Christ's body. When even one is missing, the church lacks power and is less than whole. Whether we're victims, perpetrators, or innocent bystanders we're called by God to seek restoration. And when one of God's sheep goes missing we have no choice: We must "Bring 'Em Back Alive."

No One is Expendable  Oct 9, 2008
As I read Bring `Em Back Alive I felt vindicated. In my own book, Not My Making, I document how church members turned me out when I was hurting. I was threatened by the minister with expulsion if I continued to talk about my pain. She didn't want others to learn about her own misconduct. When I finally left my fellow Christians celebrated and never sought me out. They made it clear to me I was expendable. But Dave Burchett in Bring `Em Back Alive makes it clear no one is expendable. Using the parable of the Lost Sheep he explains Christians are expected to seek out the lost and bring them safely home. I encourage all Christians to read this book. My only disappointment in this book was the chapter on "letting go of victimhood". As a psychologist I have worked with many survivors of abuse, I know no one wants to be a victim. As Barbara Coloroso explains in her book The Bully, the Bullied, and the Bystander: From Preschool to High School--How Parents and Teachers Can Help Break the Cycle of Violence, victims are despised while bullies are admired. No one is holding onto "victimhood." When others complain that someone else won't let go of being a victim what they are really saying is that listening to another person pain makes them uncomfortable. To heal victims need to tell their story. The rest of us have a moral obligation to listen. By bearing witness we enable the injured person to move from victim to survivor to thriver.
 
A practical book on healing  Sep 10, 2008
"Bring 'Em Back Alive" by David Burchett is the best book I've found to date on helping folks who've been hurt in the Church heal. He talks to both pastors & parishoners about how we hurt each other and how we can change that & his counsel is actually practical! Mr. Burchett had to go down the hard road of learning how to forgive & heal because of the wounds he received in the Church.
 
Appropriate name for a difficult challenge...  Aug 25, 2008
When I started reading the book, I couldn't put it down. I found this book very insightful; would recommend it to clergy or non-clergy.
 
Predictable  Mar 11, 2008
There is nothing original in this text - no healing power within. I could have written as well or better, and I am certainly no writer. Don't waste your money.
 
very good  May 7, 2007
This is a great quick read with a punch of wit and healing all combined! My friend (who was also wounded) read this book and said it was just the book for her(she does not read a lot). She could not put it down. It gave her the understanding and strength to go on it her healing process to let Christ take care of the situation. It helped her to know that others out there have been wounded. THis book has a wonderful idea for seeking lost lambs!!!!
