    Based on case studies of 400 American churches, authors Thom Rainer and Eric Geiger prove that the process for making disciples has quite often become too complex. Simple churches are thriving, and they are doing so by taking these four ideas to heart: Clarity. Movement. Alignment. Focus. Each idea is examined here, simply showing why it is time to simplify.

    Wes Stanton says: "Simple Church: Simplistic, but useful"

    Story
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    A useful read: churches like other organizations tend to accumulate traditions and structures and practices that may have served the mission in their day, but now are evolved to distractions and energy-drains.
    This is one to have on the shelf in print, as well as in one's ear -- for loaning, bookmarking, marginal notes, using in church reorganization projects.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Thom Rainer again?

    Possibly.


    Any additional comments?

    Similar work is the "Quest for Quality" material developed a couple decades back by Ezra Earl Jones, in the United Methodist system (based partly on W Edwards Deming's work on quality management, in the business & manufacturing world).
