With eloquence, candor, and simplicity, Dane Fowlkes turns the pages of his own story and allows the reader to peak over his shoulder and into his heart. In these spiritual and autobiographical reflections, this celebrated communicator relates carefully chosen experiences from his life as son, father, grandfather, husband, minister, and writer–for the purpose of illustrating the weight of glory in ordinary human experience.
“Glory abounds in the ordinary if you know where to look; grace is always present tense.”
Fowlkes has led anything but a dull existence–from initiation into an African tribe in northern Kenya where he is known as Jilo, a name that means “season of celebration,” to living near Gandhi’s ashram on the Sabarmati River–yet he has learned to discern and celebrate God’s grace in the commonplace. Fowlkes’s words reveal the presence of God in the midst of daily life. He embraces difficult questions and garden-variety experiences as equally essential components of our lives, rather than as enemies that seek to destroy us or bore us to tears.
“Only those who stumble in the dark fully appreciate the miracle of light.”
Toward a Church Planting Movement in India: A new approach for developing a Church Planting Movement among Hindus
Paperback – August 26, 2009
This work traces the historical development of group or People Movement strategy and then compares that strategy with traditional missionary approaches in India. This work shows that evangelizing households is the primary strategy of the New Testament and the most appropriate strategy for initiating Church Planting Movements. The thesis carefully examines salvation understanding in the Hindu context and its relationship to the caste system, establishing a foundation for a proper approach to evangelization of forward caste Hindus in light of the fact that there have been no documented Church Planting Movements among forward caste Hindus in all of India. The book concludes that the best approach to facilitating a Church Planting Movement among forward caste Hindus is by not planting churches. As contradictory as this sounds, the book shows that Christian disciples remaining within Hindu culture and familial systems holds the potential for the most indigenous approach to establishing multiplying churches among forward caste Hindus.
