4.0 out of 5 stars This book is a must if you want to start a House Church ., 11 Aug 1999
By A Customer
I cannot say enough about this book. It not only reveals much about the errors of the modern missionary methods it also reveals much about modern day churching.
This is a must for anyone wanting to start a house church. Allen couches his critism in missionary work and the like but hidden therin is a much broader comment the hierachacal nature of the modern church.
Once we begin to understand Paul and his methods we are forced to then begin to question the way we ourselves church and indeed why we want to start a church. Amongst others Allen comments on money, hierachy, leadership, church buildings. All in terms of how Paul planted churches.
He questions the validity of statements that suggest Pauls methods are no longer relevent for todays cultures by highlighting the many similartys between the many sub-cultures that existed in the Roman empire and those that we find today.

4.0 out of 5 stars Before you go consider what Allen has to say., 2 April 1998
By A Customer
Overall the book is without doubt a classic. It was written in 1912, knowing that it would not come into vogue until the 1960's. There is a great deal of insight into the actual planning necessary for the mission. The need also to be able to designate and stand back, or as Allen says to 'retire' from the work at the time. Insight into the way the church has dealt with 'heathen' people treating them really as second class citizens, always there to help, but not to encourage and train up to be able to take over in the mission. It is well worth reading, with its main emphasis on the way the apostle Paul conducted missions. I believe that sometimes Allen gets confused with the Spirit of Paul, and the Holy Spirit. He places much on what Paul did and did not do and it could be seen that he makes more of Paul, great though he was (and is), but takes away from the all-emcompasing power of the Holy Spirit. This will remain a classic for those wishing to go out and do the work of missios.
