Nearly 2,000 years ago, Jesus started a movement that has grown like wildfire throughout the past 20 centuries. Author and pastor Andy Stanley brings to life from Scripture and over 25 years of pastoral experience the irresistible nature of this movement known as the Church.
Stanley identifies some of the key decisions and strategies that helped the church begin by the power of the Holy Spirit many centuries ago and continues to flourish today. He tells many stories of how God is working today to continue the movement of the church through the examples of North Point Community Church in Atlanta, GA.
If you want to know how you can create a movement in your local community that can impact the entire world, Stanley points the way to create irresistible leadership, irresistible environments and an irresistible culture with in your church.

I have both and found that listening and reading them together gave me maximum impact, a chance to stop and absorb some material and highlight some passages for further review or discussion with others..
Casting off old steroetypes that inhibit growth and leadership opportunities for newer believers and practical approaches to analyzing what is and isn't working now.
Andy Stanley himself as he relates his story.
It caused much thought about what and how I think about effectivly communicating the love of God to today's society.
Very highly recommended for anyone hoping to make a positiv difference in today's world.
odd is good
YES. so much info and so true. i need to read again.
a totally new way of thinking about the gospel or maybe perhaps its the old way? . . . the way JESUS intended the church to function.
clear clean reading
this is the way God intended his church to be.
The print version hasn't even been released yet! This is Stanley's most important book and Audible has given me an early look. Just wonderful.
The part of this book I'm currently processing in my own ministry is the template for making a worship gathering and disciple making process irresistible.
He reads with enthusiasm.
The extreme reaction will come when we contextualize Stanley's principles in our own ministry.
Thank you audible for offering this title. I am so pleased.
So sad that we still have leaders out there like, there, I sought information about building a church but instead got a new version of what Andy Stanley believes is acceptable and not acceptable, not anything based in the word. Terrible. I will continue to meditate on the bible and forget this book.
There are no listener reviews for this title yet.
