I have read many of Thom Rainer’s books and always come away impressed with his insight and biblical perspective on the subject matter. I recommend this book to all my brothers and sisters in Christ’s church.
As a pastor of a small church with a troubled history this book was refreshing. I’ve been pastoring here almost six years and have seen the church grow and then shrink. This book has helped to confirm some of the errors I’ve made and has given simple “wisdom,” for moving ahead. Above all he emphasizes prayer. I appreciate that he doesn’t push for an all encompassing congregational consuming move towards prayer, but the impact of a few prayer warriors who take it as their personal responsibility to meet and pray for the church. More could be said, but it’s intended purpose is obvious and the information it presents is clear.
