Jesus’ Surprising Strategy

You’re likely familiar with Jesus’ prayer that His followers would be one. Less well-known is how strategic and timely this prayer is, as well as how instructional the prayer is about the kind of unity Jesus is praying for. Combine Jesus’ prayer with the Apostle Paul’s citywide analogy, and you have a gift that provides powerful direction for how the body of Christ is supposed to operate in every city – direction that could provide the very societal transformation we so desperately seek and need.

Unity for any group requires work and intentionality. Building on Jesus’ prayer and Paul’s analogy, Jesus’ Surprising Strategy examines five levels of unity, each building on the previous one, and each providing a practical, biblical means for the roles you can play to fulfill Jesus’ prayer in our day, in your relationships, and in your city. It concludes with a case study of how this is beginning to be realized in Tucson, Arizona.

David Drum encourages, instructs, and reveals his personal journey toward seeing Christian unity as a mandate worthy of your very best effort.

La sorprendente estrategía de Jesús

Es probable que estés familiarizado con la oración de Jesús en la que sus seguidores serían uno. Menos conocido es cómo la oración es ambas estratégica y oportuna, y así mismo cómo la oración es un guía sobre la forma de unidad para la que ora Jesús. Combina la oración de Jesús y el análogo del apóstalo Pablo por toda la ciudad, y tienes un regalo que proporciona dirección poderosa para el cuerpo de Cristo en cómo debe funcionar todos los días—dirección que puede proporcionar la misma transformación social que buscamos y necesitamos tan desesperadamente.

La unidad para cualquier grupo requiere el trabajo y la intencionalidad. Al construir en la oración de Jesús y el análogo de Pablo, La sorprendente estrategia de Jesús examina los cinco niveles de la unidad, de forma que cada uno se construye en el anterior, y cada uno facilitando un medio práctico y bíblico para los papeles que puedes desempeñar para llenar la oración de Jesús en nuestros días, en tus vínculos, y en tu ciudad. Se concluye con un estudio de campo que muestra cómo la idea está empezando a realizarse en la ciudad de Tucson, Arizona.

David Drum te anima, te enseña, y te revela su camino personal hasta la unidad cristiana como un mandato digno de tu mejor esfuerzo.

If It Was Easy, Jesus Wouldn’t Have Prayed For It

Jesus is still praying that His Church would be one. Are we? Does the body of Christ resemble Jesus’ prayer? Are we praying with Jesus that it would? It isn’t easy.

Jesus’ John 17 prayer is far more strategic, central to the New Testament, and instructive than we realize—and it’s working. In the largely unchurched city of Tucson, AZ, countless people are turning to the Christian Church as an expression of the love of God for everyone in the city in areas such as foster care and places like the public schools. In an increasingly divided and immature world, Jesus prayed the answer.

This second book from David Drum details new challenges and insights to his role of being an “employee” of John 17. He’ll unpack the blessings that have emerged through six years of full time devotion to seeing Jesus’ prayer answered in his city. Join the adventure as he shares unexpected trials, while expanding your understanding of exactly what unity/harmony is, how it works in multiple settings, and how you can draw even closer to Christ in the process.
