"Dangerous Church is such an appropriate title for a book by John Bishop. Everything I know about him reflects this passion to be someone who cares only about what truly matters - helping people get to Heaven. He is genuine, and his passion for the cause of Christ and pointing others to Him will challenge and inspire you to do whatever it takes, whenever it is needed - to live a dangerous faith"
--Dino Rizzo, Lead Pastor of Healing Place Church
"The church is the most dangerous force on the planet because it has the most powerful and important message on the planet. John Bishop shows us that we don’t have to cower in a corner, afraid of the world or daunted by the task that lies before us. We can advance. We can see the world changed in our generation. We can be dangerous."
--Steven Furtick, Senior Pastor of Elevation Church, Author of Sun Stand Still
"The Bride of Christ is rising on the Earth like never before. As world views become more polarised, our position must be unmistakable and uncompromising. A Dangerous Church is a church that is alive, full of the lost and broken, a generouschurch taking risks and one that can often be exposed to misunderstanding and persecution for the sake of the Gospel. John Bishop will confront,enlarge and equip any leader who has the courage to read this book in their determination to ‘do whatever it takes’ and see the Cause of Christ advanced on the earth."
--- Brian Houston, Senior Pastor, Hillsong Church
"Most churches and pastors are simply failing to reach lost people with the gospel of Jesus Christ. Rather than feeling guilty or getting defensive they should read this book and be ignited with a Spirit given passion to see people saved."
---Mark Driscoll, Senior Pastor, Mars Hill Church
"For any church seeking new life and are not afraid of taking risks for Jesus, John's book is filled with insights and inspiration on every page. Take time to read this book slowly from cover to cover, and allow the Holy Spirit to stir up your heart to reclaim your first love, the mission of Jesus Christ."
---Dr. Wayne Cordeiro, Founder & Senior Pastor, New Hope Christian Fellowship
"In every area of life, we find reassurance in the familiar. Yet, the very essence of Christianity is about looking past our comfort in order to reach those who are far away from God. What if today’s churches were willing to risk everything, including familiarity, in order to reach the people Jesus wants them to reach?
In Dangerous Church, John Bishop takes readers on a personal journey. And as he stretches us beyond the limits of comfort and unpacks the power of risk, he reveals what a life of dangerous faith can produce—a life of passion, power, and true purpose."
---Ed Young, Pastor , Fellowship Church, Author, The Creative Leader
"What would it looked like if we lived on the wild side when it came to church? Who might we reach? How might God show up in the most unexpected ways? John Bishop challenges us to open our hearts and minds to all God desires to do in our congregations and communities and experience the fullness of grace every step of the way. Dangerous Church is a book that will challenge the way you lead forever."
---Margaret Feinberg, author of Scouting the Divine and The Sacred Echo
"John Bishop is dangerous. So is his church. That's why their story needs to be told. It's a story of faith-steps so large (and at times so crazy!) that "Only God" could bring success. Read it and then let God ignite the danger within."
---Larry Osborne, Pastor & Author, North Coast Church, Vista, CA
