Well, I’m gonna have few book reviews coming, I re-read one lately, and am a few book reviews behind. I’ll space them out for your sanity.
This book was by Thom Rainer & Eric Geiger. I know I’m way behind reading this book being a church guy in the church world. But here’s the really Simple overview.
Church is way too complicated, we have too many ministries, too many activities and we end up just consuming church peoples time and running programs rather than making disciples and reaching the lost.
The solution, make church more simple, don’t be mediocre at a lot of things, be excellent at a few. They advocate to run almost every “ministry” or “program” out of small groups.
Great book, a great read for any church leader, it may or may not be paradigm shifting for you. No matter what side of the coin you are on in this debate, it will be a good challenge or a good reinforcement and refinement for what you are already doing.
