I picked up Futureville a couple of years ago on a whim. I had never heard of Skye Jethani and, to be completely honest, I didn’t fully realize what the book would be about (I thought it was going to be about technology).
But my mind was blown and my world rocked at this new vision of what the future would be like and how I can be a part of making it happen.
Since then I have read both of his other books, With and The Divine Commodity and listen to him weekly on The Phil Visher Podcast so I jumped on the opportunity to be a part of the launch team for his new book, Immeasurable: Reflections On The Soul Of Ministry In The Age Of Church, INC.
I would have read this book anyway, but it is especially pertinent to me as my day job is leading a college ministry at the local university.
Unlike his other books, this one doesn’t flow from one chapter to the next. Rather, it is a collection of essays, reflections he’s had on the state of the church and church leaders.
The reality is, our culture, both inside and outside of the church, have changed drastically over the years and Skye uses this book to explore those changes and how we should respond to them.
