I wanted to give this book 3.5 stars. It has some very good principles and I have come away challenges and helped. However there is a lot of filler that I skipped over. I didn't find the examples of churches helpful either. The research and the basic pint of the book is spot on though and I would encourage other ministry leaders to read this book and spit out the bones.

7/10: A fairly helpful book, with what appears to be a very sensible premise — that people in "simple" churches tend to grow more than those where church life is complex. It takes a statistical approach (though Rainer and Geiger are no Jim Collins), and it's certainly worth reading. It's helpfulness is lessened for me because its conclusions probably most useful to larger churches (which tend to be more complex by nature) than smaller ones, and to the American scene.

It's interesting to see reviews of fellow pastor friends who didn't like this book. I suppose it's repetitive, and some of the research needs explained better, but it hammers home again and again crucial thoughts on church organization.

Other reviews are correct when they ask for deeper theological and Scriptural reflection, however.… (més)

The premise for the book is great. Churches should be nurseries for leaders that take their gifting to use outside as well as inside the church. Most of the book sounded like a very through apologetic for this. Not a cuddly read, but solid argument and presentation. However, I wanted to know more about how to achieve the actual systems and structures to do this. This was covered at the end of the book, but I felt the system suggested was only one form of implementation and that it felt biased to those with competence in an academic and linear system. I wanted more creative and diverse models of implementing a leader cultivating structure.… (més)
