Desiring to be a breakout leader!

It is a well structured and informative analysis of those 13 Breakout Churches. Give prayer concepts to examine my own context of ministry. I would recommend to every church member, especially those seeking encouragement to find paths to breakout of the status quo!

Good, but not original enough for me

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

This book is good, but it leverages Good to Great heavily. I wouldn't mind this as much, except it is really hard to get into when he quotes from Good to Great seemingly every 5 minutes. I confess that I just wanted to stop listening and go listen to Good to Great again. With that said, there are some original insights, and for that reason it is worth the time to go through. But, I strongly encourage the reader or listener to go through Good to Great first.

If you???ve listened to books by Thom S. Rainer before, how does this one compare?

Rainer's other books are better.
