    "Life-Changing"

    After 30+ years of ministry, I had already come to many of the conclusions that Andy has reached. hearing his words, his vision and his explanation of these ideas was transformational for me.

    "Awesome and encouraging!"

    I love the message in this book focusing on creating a church for the unchurched. I would love to be a part of a church that took this message to heart and worked toward creating a similar model. It has inspired me to keep trying. Thank you Andy Stanley for placing your heart into your work. Millions will get to know Jesus through your teachings and the people you motivate to step out and make changes that matter.

    "Great Book, Bad Narration"

    Great book for church leaders! Unfortunately, the narrator sounds like his sinuses are clogged, and his inflection and emphasis often do not match the content he's reading. The poor performance was very distracting.

    "Don't put this book down"

    Don't put this book down... Not until you've read it from cover to cover at least. The church is in desperate need of change. A changed message? Never! We stand behind Paul and say the cross of Christ is of "first importance." Our message will never change... But our methods should. Andy Stanley lays out some great arguments on what the local church could be. I pray you don't resist new ideas... But embrace them.
