A New Kind of Church for a New Kind of World, by Frank Viola

Exploring the practicals through which a church can flesh out all four dimensions is another discussion altogether. But it wouldn’t hurt if those churches that stress one or two dimensions would dialogue with those who stress the others. And in this way we can learn from one another.

Then, perhaps, the church of Jesus Christ will more effectively deliver the gospel to those who are searching for reality in our postmodern world. So it seems to me anyway.
