    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"
    Would you listen to Deep & Wide again? Why?

    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.

    Story
    "WOW!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Deep & Wide to be better than the print version?

    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.


    What did you like best about this story?

    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.


    What about Tom Parks’s performance did you like?

    He reads with enthusiasm.


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

    The extreme reaction will come when we contextualize Stanley's principles in our own ministry.


    Any additional comments?

    Thank you audible for offering this title. I am so pleased.

    "Terrible!"

    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.
