The Sphinx of Driz
Okay, whenever I get a book that it looks like someone self-published, I am hesitant. This book was required seminary reading. It was actually one of the better books. I didn't skim this one like I have so many others, I actually read it all.

Snyder isn't just another theologian telling us that there's only one way to revitalize the church. We've heard them all: missions are the only way, converting souls to Jesus is the only way, marketing is the only way, small groups are the only way, Bible studies are the only way, etc., etc., etc.

Snyder takes a systematic approach by looking at how God revitalized the early church, then the reformation, and on up to present day in America.

This is a good book if you want some insight into how God may already be reshaping your ministry and it might be time to get on board! I recommend this book to any church leader or student studying revitalization.

Snyder provides a well-organized, concise, and relevant study of three historical renewal movements within the Christian church and their implications for modern communities. Snyder begins with an overview of the Montanist movement as the earliest renewal impulse within Christianity. He then offers several frameworks for understanding renewal that can be usefully combined in examining both historical and current movements. The historical sections look at European Pietism, the Moravians, and early Methodism. Finally, a second bloc of chapters looks at common traits of renewal movements, noticing particularly the use of small groups to foster community, connection to the poor, and the role of education and media in connecting the beliefs of the church to the broader world. My main critique might be a wavering between trying to universalize characteristics of renewal and a careful awareness of the particularity of each community (Snyder humorously observes the "Great Seminar Fallacy," the illusion that you can apply a seminar finding to your own particular situation.) But overall a useful resource for historians of renewal, theologians of ecclesiology, and local pastors or church leaders looking for a theoretical background for instituting renewal in their own situations.

Contemporary Wesleyan scholar, historian and theologian Howard Snyder turns his focus to review the renewal movements of History and has written a text that I continually refer to again and again as I seek to understand and strategise to move the church forward in my spheres of influence. His central premise is "That for renewal to last it must flow". Following a thorough and excellent survey covering the period of history from 2nd century Monetarism through the ages since to contemporary renewal movements, Snyder establishes that there are five dimensions to renewal: Individual, Corporate, Conceptual, Structural and Missiological. His central insight is the idea is that renewal can break out in any one of the five dimensions, but if it is going to last and be sustainable, it must flow through all five dimensions. I believe this is a valuable and important contribution to the emerging missional discussion for in my opinion many new, emerging, missional initiatives come out and leave the rest of the church behind and the whole church suffers for the edge of the Church God is renewing in this day, do not get the opportunity to breathe Spirit life back into the church as God intends

From the back cover of the 1989 version from Zondervan:

"Why does new life spring up in the church precisely at moments when the church seems most dead? The author analyzes church renewal from a historical perspective, focusing especially on the Montanist, Pietist, Methodist, and Moravian movements. The themes that recur within these movements and throughout the church today include the following:
* Primitivism (the wish to recover the vitality of the early church
* The "new work" of the Holy Spirit * Judgment on existing patters of the institutional church
* Commitment to the counterculture
* More intimate fellowship for prayer and Bible study 6) Nontraditional leadership
* Lay Ministry, and
* Evangelistic vitality.

Howard Snyder then synthesizes the lessons of church renewal in history and applies them in such a way that we can build a renewal strategy for the local church today."
