Read Transformation, and you'll catch a vision for how your church can escape the routine and have both local and global impact for God's kingdom through the power of changed lives.Leaders Speak Out on Transformation:"This thought-provoking book is for every planter or pastor who is asking, 'What does it mean to be salt and light in today's worldwide community?'"-Ed Young, senior pastor, Fellowship Church; author, Can We Do That?"Bob Roberts always brings me back to why I do what I do.
