    "Pastoring a church is a lot of work"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. There are many things about pastoring that are not taught in a seminary. This audiobook illuminates some of those things.

    Story
    "Eye-Opening"
    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked hearing how Stanley arrived at God's will for his life, how he related how he, his wife, and his church went through to arrive at a place that is bringing glory to God and leading many people into a growing relationship with Jesus.


    What three words best describe Tom Parks’s voice?

    Not Andy Stanley


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

    I laughed, I cried, I thought deeply.


    Any additional comments?

    I wish Andy Stanley had read the book because I kept having to translate his voice into the story.

    "A Must Read For Church Leaders!!!"
    Any additional comments?

    Andy's insights into church structure are brilliant. While his model of doing church is not for everyone, this process to discovering/deciding the model is for anyone. It's a must read for any church leader.

    "Amazing insight!"
    What did you love best about Deep & Wide?

    This book would serve as a great resource for any church leader. In general, there are many life lessens to take away from this book. As with most books, there will be parts that may not be applicable to everyone's situation. However, you will not regret the time spent listening. This, like many good books, was compelling to the point that I subsquently bought the print copy so that I could go back and study it in depth! Enjoy.

    Story
    "Taking my staff through this"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Deep & Wide to be better than the print version?

    I found the audible version to be a convenient way to go through the book and have additionally picked up a print version that is helpful for referencing and reviewing areas. While I can bookmark areas on the audible copy, it gets difficult to see charts and other appendices right away. I listen on my phone while I drive.


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

    The book is a personal look at ministry and methods and listening to it brings that personal touch to the experience.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I was in tears at the end when Andy shared a story of the work of a teenage volunteer leader in a younger child's life because of similar experiences. I took it to our children's ministry leader right away and said "you are having an impact. Keep it up."


    Any additional comments?

    Yesterday was discussing the book with a lay leader at another church and she said it was the most moving book she's read in a very long time.

    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.
