Several years ago, Michael Hyatt (former CEO of Thomas Nelson) responded to a rumor on his blog. In the post, Michael wrote,
“According to the most recent rumor—which I’ve now heard twice—we [Thomas Nelson] are planning a layoff for June 19th … There is absolutely no truth to it … If you hear this rumor, I would be grateful if you would help me short-circuit it. You can tell ’em it’s not true, and you heard it directly from me.”

OUR NEW YOUTUBE CHANNEL
More and more people are using YouTube for content. For that reason, we’ve launched a new YouTube channel to equip and spread the Insurgence, particularly to a younger generation (late teens, 20s, 30s, 40s), since YouTube is their primary medium for consuming content these days.

I wasn’t able to fit a number of chapters in INSURGENCE. So we put them online as supplemental articles.
One of them is entitled The Origins of Human Government and Hierarchy. This article makes an outrageous proposal. But one that I believe is true. Be sure to read all of it as it’s highly nuanced. Feel free to print it out and read offline (that’s what I do with articles).
In this video, Frank is interviewed on his 2008 book with George Barna (PAGAN CHRISTIANITY) and his 2018 book (INSURGENCE). Both books are similar in that one deconstructs modern concepts of “church” and the other deconstructs modern concepts of “kingdom” yet also offers solutions (INSURGENCE).

In first-century Palestine, there were left-wing liberals and right-wing conservatives.
And then there was Jesus of Nazareth.
The progressive liberals were the Sadducees. They denied certain supernatural parts of the Bible because it didn’t fit their world view (sound familiar?).[Continue Reading…]

Enjoy the interview!
What message are you conveying by the one-word title of your book?
There is a revolution happening right now in the body of Christ, an insurgence against what the New Testament calls “the world system” and into what Jesus called “the gospel of the kingdom,” which is the most powerful message in the New Testament.
The insurgence began in the first century, but it is being recovered (or “reclaimed”) in our time. In the book, I explain exactly how, offering stories of ordinary sisters and brothers in Christ who have joined the insurgence and how astounding their experience has been.[Continue Reading…]
