If Jesus Were Mayor challenges readers to grasp an enlarged biblical understanding of the church's pivotal importance. "The church," writes Bob Moffitt, "is far more important for the transformation of a society than the president of the nation. The principal and most strategic institution God appointed to carry out His big agenda is the church. We serve the head of the church." Moffitt explores how to make God's broad agenda the vision, practice, and "DNA" of each local church. He encourages readers to catch a vision of Jesus' agenda for their community; to perceive the church's role in cultural transformation through the lenses of Scripture, history, and current examples; and demonstrates how local churches can be equipped and mobilized.
