7. A Church Called Tov: Forming a Goodness Culture That Resists Abuses of Power and Promotes Healing
Author: by Scot McKnight
What is the way forward for the church? Tragically, in recent years, Christians have gotten used to revelations of abuses of many kinds in our most respected churchesfrom Willow Creek to Harvest, from Southern Baptist pastors to Sovereign Grace churches.
Respected author and theologian Scot McKnight and former Willow Creek member Laura Barringer wrote this book to paint a pathway forward for the church. We need a better way. The sad truth is that churches of all shapes and sizes are susceptible to abuses of power, sexual abuse, and spiritual abuse.
Abuses occur most frequently when Christians neglect to create a culture that resists abuse and promotes healing, safety, and spiritual growth. How do we keep these devastating events from repeating themselves? We need a map to get us from where we are today to where we ought to be as the body of Christ.
That map is in a mysterious and beautiful little Hebrew word in Scripture that we translate good, the word tov. In this book, McKnight and Barringer explore the concept of tovunpacking its richness and how it can help Christians and churches rise up to fulfill their true calling as imitators of Jesus.

In the COVID crisis, the beloved shepherd of over one billion Catholics saw the cruelty and inequity of our society exposed more vividly than ever before.
He also saw, in the resilience, generosity, and creativity of so many people, the means to rescue our society, our economy, and our planet. In direct, powerful prose, Pope Francis urges us not to let the pain be in vain.
He begins Let Us Dream by exploring what this crisis can teach us about how to handle upheaval of any kind in our own lives and the world at large. With unprecedented candor, he reveals how three crises in his own life changed him dramatically for the better.
By its very nature, he shows, crisis presents us with a choice: we make a grievous error if we try to return to some pre-crisis state. But if we have the courage to change, we can emerge from the crisis better than before.

Chan says, We’ve strayed so far from what God calls Church.We all know it. We know that what we’re experiencing is radically different from the Church in Scripture. For decades, church leaders like myself have lost sight of the inherent mystery of the Church.
We have trained people sitting in the pews to become addicted to lesser things. It’s time for that to change. When Jesus returns, will He find us caring for His Brideeven more than for our own lives? Letters to the Church reminds us of how powerful, how glorious the Church once was and calls us to once again be the Church God intended us to be.
