If I am being honest I’m not generally a big fan of books on church planting My lack of enthusiasm stems from two primary observationsFirst many books on church planting are authored by people who actually have surprisingly limited experience in church planting or whose credibility rests on a single relatively meaningless criterion—their ability to draw a large crowdSecond a preponderance of books on church planting that seem to gain popular traction lack any meaningful theological foundations andor framework for their proposalsThe Church as Movement by my friends JR Woodward and Dan White Jr I am thrilled to say subverts those stereotypes and gives me fresh hope for a new breed of resources in this areaHere’s why I say that Full review here
