Pellowe, John. The Church At Work. Elmira: Canadian Council of Christian Charities, 2012.
Reviewed by Craig Kraft
Pellowe brings his experience as the director of the Canadian Council of Christian Charities together with careful examination of biblical and historical precedents to reflect on the relationship between church and parachurch ministries. The book provides a clear understanding of the latent tension experienced by many who caught within the church and parachurch interplay. He sees the two as complimentary and provides helpful tools for reflection and understanding. The Final chapters of the book suggest how churches and parachurch ministries can enrich their relationships and work together to build the Kingdom. I recommend this book to clergy and laity within the church and to those who are involved in parachurch ministry. It will open the reader’s eyes to understand the root of historical tensions and provide a foundation for building trust, accountability and communication that lead to renewed relationships and collaboration.
