Complex adaptive leadership (CAL) is an approach to leadership based on a polyarchic assumption (leadership of the many by the many), rather than based on an oligarchic assumption (leadership of the many by the few). Leadership in this theory is seen as a complex dynamic involving all, rather than only a role or attribute within a hierarchy. The theory calls for skills, attributes and roles which are additional to the demands of traditional leadership

  • This book clearly identifies the challenges for the modern church but also clarifies the move of the God in the midst of the people. In spite of the obvious decline in attendance, closing sanctuaries, and widespread financial challenges, people are doing extraordinary things for Jesus Christ. This book shares the hope that can be seen by looking at how people outside of the main stream are advancing the Reign of God. Effective ministry often occurs through unlikely people in unpredictable circumstances. This book inspires us to believe beyond ourselves and see hope in the midst of trying situations. Reading it will inspire pastors to not give up even when human, financial, and technical resources are scarce. This book will inspire lay leaders and members to continue that God has a plan in motion even when the future seems bleak. Read Jesus Insurgency and be inspired!!!

  • I am a big fan of Rudy Rasmus. When I saw that this book was out, I tried to pick up a copy at my local bookstore. When I found that they were out of stock, I thought, "I'll just go download it to my kindle." While the content of the book is wonderful, I have been VERY disappointed with sloppy, haphazard, formatting of the kindle edition. There are typos throughout, spaces inserted where they shouldn't be (occasionally changing words around), line breaks in weird places (especially on quotes), and a jumbling of words in sentences where a footnote is inserted. I can understand these kind of errors for some of the public domain stuff for kindle, but this publisher needs to rework this book and re-release it in a corrected format. Spending $9.99 on such shoddy formatting and layout work is not acceptable, in my opinion.

    I would give 4 stars for content, 2 stars for format.

  • Authenticity, credibility, and the voice of experience... this is what leapt from each page as I read these words of wisdom from the trenches. You will not find theoretical platitudes or simplistic solutions here. This book is real, and just what the church needs in this day of turn-key programs and canned responses that never really work because real life is too messy for easy answers.

    The grit of the Houston streets resonates as always through Rudy's words, while Dottie's flowing prose lays bare the heart of one who has wrestled with a stagnant congregation emerging from routines of maintenance and self-preservation to actually be an incarnation of Christ, much to the chagrin of the city of Phoenix and those who preferred the status quo and who were more than happy to help the poor and hurting, only "not in my back yard."

    With reminders that the call of Christ is a summons to come and die, a call to self-denial and sacrifice, the authors challenge the church to embrace death that she might find resurrection. They push us to the edges - where Jesus is, and the birthplace of real change. It is time for the church to stop looking to the "experts" and listening to the voices of those in authority, and remember that we serve the illegitimate son of peasants who was born in a barn, who grew up to have no place to lay his head, and who died a criminal's death. Dottie and Rudy remind us in this powerful book. May those who have ears to hear listen.

  • The authors identify many of the problems facing the church today. They speak from experience which provides a good look at the reasons today's church is declining in membership. The authors not only identify problems but they offer solutions that can help us turn around declining attendance. More importantly, they provide directions we can follow in helping the church meet the needs of those who can benefit by the reaching out of the church to places and people who have needs.

  • Loved the book and hated it. It is direct and prophetic about how things really are, some of which is uncomfortable but necessary.

  • Excellent! The authors, with love and grace, challenge the status quo while giving possible alternatives. A must read for every congregation and every pastor.

  • Great read for 21st Church doers of the word. If this book doesn't help you break out of "Routinization", a Rudy word than you missed the revolution.
