I echo that statement wholeheartedly as this book laid out things concerning how “to do church” from a leader’s standpoint so well. He also did a excellent job in answering some of the most pressing questions for church leadership. What does it mean that a church be faithful? How should a church act? How do you define success in ministry in a local church?

I feel this book should not only be read by church leadership (Pastors, Elders, Deacons, Trustees) but also would be very beneficial to those that sit in the pew each week and serve in the church. I plan on using this book for future ministry in church planting! Another good resource for those that attend and serve at church is “What is a Healthy Church Member” by Thabiti M. Anyabwile.
