This excellent book by Craig Groeschel really lives up to expectations. A challenging look at Church in the 21st Century and a prompt for all church leaders to think through what they are doing and why. If we are going to be effective in reaching our world with the Good News of Jesus then some things need to change with us! Highly recommended.

Two years ago our church was growing but then something seemed to happen. We can't put our finger on it but we've just seemed to have lost something. I think most people who attend are still deeply passionate for the Lord but enthusiasm seems to have wavered, attendance is on the decline and young people just don't feel like attending our Sunday services. I read this book in a couple of sittings and was really inspired! Craig has identified exactly what we're missing and gave me hope that there is something we can do about it! I have send a copy to my pastor to read and about to send off more copied for each of the deacons to read. If you're in a leadership position and can relate to your church having lost something then i recommend this book. Once you're read it you'll be fired up again, but please don't hang on to it and pass it on. Enjoy!
