This is the best book on Christian innovation I've ever read. For too long the Western church has blindly embraced the ideology of progress as our core narrative. Through faithful and penetrating Scriptural engagement, Len replaces the common adoption of "creative destruction" with a proper theology of "new creation." This is not simply a book; it is a hitchhiker’s guide to the future for church teams desiring to explore Christian innovation.

Every now and then a book shoots across the sky like a bolt of lightning, cleansing the air, clarifying the subject matter, silhouetting the challenges, and lighting up the horizon for new vistas and ventures. Len Wilson’s Greater Things is that rare, out-of-the-blue bombshell of a book that will electrify anyone concerned about innovation, creativity, and imagination in the church.

In this groundbreaking new book, author, innovator, entrepreneur, and follower of Jesus Len Wilson takes the reader on a much-needed journey exploring Christian innovation in the church. If there has ever been a need for church leaders to think creatively and with imagination, that moment and the opportunity is now. Over the backdrop of the pandemic, its financial implications, and the current tensions in our culture, Len helps the reader see that innovation and tradition are not at odds, but that innovation actually builds on tradition. This trailblazing book explores the promise of Jesus that if we believe in Him, we will do even greater works than he did. I highly recommend this challenging and thought-provoking book!

Len Wilson literally wrote the book on creativity.  Now he takes on an even weightier subject:  innovation.  Writing with clarity and purpose about the church’s clarity and purpose, Wilson ranges from Rauschenbush to Vos and from Willow Creek to Twitter.  Along the way he offers this trenchant observation that I can’t stop mulling over:  “Eventually, the influence of all innovations atrophy.”  Oh, I don’t want that to be true but I know it is.  Dig in to Len Wilson’s latest to feed your soul and stir your mind

Len Wilson's Greater Things offers a compelling vision and theology for Christ-centered innovation. In a sea of disruptive and evolutionary theories, Len offers a faithful perspective that embeds God's creative and redemptive character at the center of innovative work. This book is an excellent read for any Christian leader who desires to see God's kingdom on Earth as it is in heaven.

“Innovation” is a common term in today’s society. For some Christians, the notion of innovation can bring anxiety, especially when compared with an “old-time religion” that feels so comfortable. We need a guide with a love for the Church and experience in Spirit-led innovation. Fortunately, Dr. Len Wilson is this person. In Greater Things, this pastor, entrepreneur, creative, and innovator provides a map to guide the Church in adaptation and innovation, which are critical for the future. This map provides Christians with trail markers for designing a way forward. As a professor I can confidently state this book will become required reading in our degree program.
