    Story
    "Excellent"

    Andy Stanley turns tradition and conventional wisdom on their heads as he lays out his case for creating churches that draw the unchurched. Prepare to be challenged. Prepare to initially disagree. But if you're wise, you'll eventually have to concede that he's thought these things through and that his church is truly achieving its mission.

    What did you love best about Deep & Wide?

    Andy challenges our norms and is comfortable if we don't want to go there. But he lets us know the consequences.

    Story
    "Honest, Seminal, Influential"

    Andy Stanley lets us see behind the scenes what happens when you try to do great things for God. He talks with candor about the hard stuff as well as the good stuff. And he does so in a manner that is easy to understand in a challenging and engaging. One of the finest books on church life and development that I know of written with candor and refreshing honesty.

    Story
    "Practical experience reaching unchurched people"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Deep & Wide to be better than the print version?

    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..


    What did you like best about this story?

    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.


    Which character – as performed by Tom Parks – was your favorite?

    Andy Stanley himself as he relates his story.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It caused much thought about what and how I think about effectivly communicating the love of God to today's society.


    Any additional comments?

    Very highly recommended for anyone hoping to make a positiv difference in today's world.

    "ENLIGHTENING"

    YES. so much info and so true. i need to read again.


    What did you like best about this story?

    a totally new way of thinking about the gospel or maybe perhaps its the old way? . . . the way JESUS intended the church to function.


    What does Tom Parks bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    clear clean reading


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    this is the way God intended his church to be.
