Publisher's Description

The simple revolution is here. From the design of Apple products to Google's uncluttered homepage, simple ideas are changing the world.

Now in paperback, multi-awarded #1 national bestseller Simple Church guides Christians back to the simple gospel-sharing methods of Jesus. No bells or whistles required. With insights based on case studies of  400 American churches, Thom Rainer and Eric Geiger prove the disciple-making process is often too complex. Simple churches thrive by taking four ideas to heart: 

Clarity. Movement. Alignment. Focus.

Simple Church
examines each idea, clearly showing why it is time to simplify. This updated trade paper edition includes a new chapter with further insights the authors have gained through hundreds of conversations with church leaders since this landmark book's original release.

    Excellent book, really gives good guide lines for moving leadership into a successful venture. Doesn't give you detailed steps, but guides you through the processes in such a way any church, leader, or Pastor can succeed with. Size doesn't matter, getting everyone focused on the processes to succeed does.

    After I began reading Simple Church, I began to see elements of ministries I have been involved in and am currently in through the examples given. Amazingly, Simple Church brings not only relevant issues pertaining church processes, but give helpful, practical methods which have been proven to work.

    Every person in Church leadership should read this book as it gives perspective to problems, and affirmation for those who are truly on point.

    Ministry will always bring stress, but if you want to: 1) see people spiritually grow and 2) have less stress in meetings and ministry management, buy this book. The point of the book is to teach you how to streamline the discipleship process so it becomes easy for people to take the next step in their growth. This book should be used in every Christian university and seminary.
