Item Description...
The message that will change the world is only as strong as the transformation that has first taken place within believers. ?Glocal? churches create disciples who, transformed by the Holy Spirit, are infiltrating today?s culture on a global and local scale with the undeniable message of a changed life.

Publishers Description
Author and pastor Bob Roberts Jr. is one of the architects of what church and Christian community can become in this new century. His unique approach to Christianity is based on what he calls T-Life (transformed life), which leads to a T-World (transformed world). Drawing inspiration from early church history and the emerging church in the developing world, Roberts envisions a new way of engaging the local church to achieve common goals. He calls for building a church culture rather than a church program. Glocal churches create disciples who, transformed by the Holy Spirit, are infiltrating today's culture on a global and local scale. In Roberts's terms, when we establish a relationship with Jesus Christ and begin applying his principles, we experience T-Life (transformed life). Transformation begins with a growing, interactive relationship with God that includes personal and corporate worship. This, in turn, results in community. As community serves others, transformation has both a global and local (glocal) impact and creates T-World. Transformation redefines the focus and practice of the church, not from external bells and whistles, but from the internal transformation of the very character of its people.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Dynamic, practical, and proven  Aug 30, 2006
"Transformation" comes from the pen of a practioner and is the overflow of a community of faith that has been striving to impact the world for Christ in dynamic ways for almost 30 years. And, they are doing it. There are a lot of opportunities out there to study theory. Here is an opportunity to read the words of a dynamic, risk taking, practical leader whose methods and leadership have proved succesful.
A clear and urgent message for personal and global transformation, a must read!  Aug 13, 2006
Over the past several months I have read and reflected on Bob Robert's book. Transformation has been one of those books that has had a major impact in my life at a critical time.

The message is clear, very basic yet so profound. Bob draws on personal experiences and his own transformation. His authenticity and transparency is powerful, real and encouraging to those of us who feel the same way but have a hard time facing it and admitting that we struggle with the same things as mature people in leadership positions.

True Transformation only comes from an authentic and growing relationship with the Living God. Global transformation, that we need so desperately today, starts with personal transformation.

Bob clearly communicates how we can personally be transformed. How we can experience the life that we were meant to live, be the people we were created to be, accomplish the work we were made to do.

Reading, meditating and following what Bob shares from his personal life experience has literarily transformed my personal time with God and my daily walk with God. Thanks Bob for being so transparent and so real with your thoughts and your practical applications.

As the process of personal transformation takes place, we are moved to be part of Global Transformation, as we view our lives, our faith and our work as one harmonious unit. We can not experience true personal transformation and "stay in our box". Be the same people, settle for keeping it quiet. We are moved to pursuing our passions and making "Transparent Connections" with others who are also being transformed. It's through these connections and each doing our part that we see "Global Transformation".

Bob uses simple memorable diagrams to clearly communicate the connections between personal and global transformation and the key elements of each. At the end of each chapter there are a few thought provoking questions that I recommend to ponder and maybe write down in an accompanying journal. It seems to really help. I did this by myself, I am considering recommending it to a group of friends I meet regularly with and do it together. I am sure it will spur some great discussions.

Bob Robert's true life examples and his personal experiences give the concepts and ideas of this book credibility and authority. I really enjoyed and use many of the stories as examples of what can happen if we experience true transformation.

Transformation is one of these books I put with Covey's "Eighth Habit". Warren's "The Purpose Driven Life". as they relate to personal purpose and impact; Collins' "Good to Great" and Friedman's "The World is Flat" for community and world impact. The best part is Transformation talks about the true power that changes the world now and forever.

Get it, read it and try to do what it recommends, it will transform your life from the mundane to world impact! I am experiencing it first hand right now.

Read this book  Jul 7, 2006
This book is a great read for people who are wanting their lives to count for the Kingdom of God. Roberts is a great thinker and practicioner and has lived out his message for the last 25 years (or so). I have learned a great deal from he and the guys who are a part of Northwood and Glocal Net ( There is so much to be learned about being about the Kingdom of God, Church Planting, Global Movements, creating culture inside of a group of people that perpetuates (sp?) itself and much more. i believe that the true authority of Roberts' writing is his faithfulness to practice these things along with his teachings. Don't just read his book, learn from his life and the example he and his family are of people who have laid their life down for the mission of the good news about Christ.

On the structural side of things: Roberts is a global thinker in multiple ways. He writes with a circular form of logic. Meaning he will loop towards a point. This resonates with the way I think, especially because I am so ADD. My only problem in reading the book is when I would take some other tangent in my mind off something he said and he would go a totally different direction. I think that his flow of writing will more effectively connect with some from my generation (30 and under) because we think more like this. Boomers... Maybe it will be harder for you. Not sure.

Bob, thanks for the book!
Go Bob!  Jun 17, 2006
Bob Roberts is a gem of a man. He writes straight from the heart and speaks with the authrity that comes from direct experience in that which he writes about. Well worth reading.
A Refreshing Perspective   Jun 14, 2006
The book begins with a rhetorical question "What would your church be like if ..? and follows with a piercing assessment of the state of the art in the church and missions. I'm not a church professional and haven't spent a single day in a seminary class so I found it quite refreshing that a guy that has so much experience with both can be that objective and introspective about his profession and the contemporary church. I can imagine that Dr. Roberts situation analysis will cause an immune response from those that are comfortable with the incremental statistics and "successes" of the modern church. Even if you don't like his perspective that somewhere between the first and 21st century the church evolved from substance to style, keep reading. The rest of the book deals with personal transformation, church transformation, and the impact that has on local and global transformations. Good stuff.

The book cautions that it is not a recipe or how-to guide. It is unlikely that other churches would successfully duplicate what has been done at Northwood and their 80 plus daughter churches using the same methods and programs. Every church has to find its own way to be transformed and then transform locally and globally. The book offers numerous examples and some insight into their unique situation. In fact, it seemed a bit exaggerated at times. On a trip to Texas a few months back I had an opportunity to visit Northwood on a Sunday morning. Folks - this is for real. Bob is a real guy that has the energy, drive, and insight of a silicon valley entrepreneur, the heart of a guy doing his best to walk with God, and a thick Texas accent. The people at Northwood are real. They really do those things like take their kids to countries that have state department travel advisories and plant churches in their own neighborhood. Something that struck with me was that most of the people at Northwood were new to church when they got there. They didn't know you weren't supposed to or couldn't do the things they've done. Perhaps those of us that have been doing church and missions all our lives have some things we can learn (or forget) from these folks and the principles outlined in the book.

I hope this is not wasted on professionals - some of us amateurs might just get it too. In fact, I think that is a core premise of the book. After returning from my trip to Texas, I bought extra copies and gave them to some other average folks and even a few church staff. Books don't transform people but this one provides a decent kick in the pants.
