'Looking to find a book to aid me in a study of Hebrews, I happened upon a wonderful book that was written thirty years ago. Found and forgotten in my own library was Strategy for Survival: A Plan for Church Renewal from Hebrews, by James Thompson. Being a member and leader in a church that was facing some upcoming changes I knew that his book would be good to read and to help me in my understanding of the book of Hebrews. Written by Thompson, an author of many excellent Christian books, this book takes the reader into the congregation to whom this sermon, the only epistle that is a sermon, was delivered. As I shared portions of this book with my fellow brothers and sisters in Christ, I am certain they tired of me repeating one phrase: “this could have been written yesterday!” It was a true statement though. As Thompson explains the purpose of the book of Hebrews to the reader, he takes a look at the many pop-psychology ideas or “special” programs that people add to churches in order to arouse interest in attending their church. However, Thompson is quick to point out that according to the author of Hebrews there is but one way to revive a church. TEACH THE GOSPEL!!!! Thompson explains the often critical but mostly exhorting book of Hebrews to the reader in portions that are both easily read as well as relevant to the church of today. I would recommend this book to all believers and in particular to all church leaders. If you are a leader of a church or know someone who is and you hear them wondering how to revive a church, give them a copy of this book and study it with them with the book of Hebrews close by. This is a very good book and you should buy and read it.'
