The Tyrannus Effect Book

I’m slowly and carefully working through a book called “The Tyrannus Effect: Restoring Paul’s Strategy for City-Wide Discipleship”.

As I have almost daily discussions with church leaders about the restoration of the city-church in order to create a city-wide discipleship movement, I find I owe them a more complete written argument for their consideration.  I’m less concerned about publishing this in print as I am convinced that this work must exist as an essential part of inviting others to join us in this effort.

Below you’ll find the chapters as I complete each one as well as an open invitation to feedback on these ideas.  I’ll be constantly rewriting these chapters and posting subsequent versions of each.  I appreciate any of you who are willing to walk through this process with me.

Chapter #1 – One Clear Mission

Chapter #2 – Paul’s City-Wide Discipleship Strategy
