This review is from: The Missional Leader: Equipping Your Church to Reach a Changing World (Jossey-Bass Leadership Network Series) (Hardcover)
I am one of the 36% of the population who describe themselves as Christian but are totally disenchanted with the institutional church. This book is about ministers learning to recognise the needs, desires, abilities of church members and changing their approach to ministry. The usual culture is one where the minister rules the roost and does his own thing expecting the congregation to jump to his command and then getting upset when they don't want to follow. This is the failing approach that we see commonly throughout Britain. Fortunately some have seen the light and have joined the trend of emerging church. All ministers should rush to read this.
