Publisher's Summary

The simple revolution has begun. From the design of the iPod to the uncluttered Google homepage, simple ideas are changing the world. Simple Church clearly calls for Christians to return to the simple gospel-sharing methods of Jesus. No bells or whistles required, so to speak.
Based on case studies of 400 American churches, authors Thom Rainer and Eric Geiger prove that the process for making disciples has quite often become too complex. Simple churches are thriving, and they are doing so by taking these four ideas to heart: Clarity. Movement. Alignment. Focus. Each idea is examined here, simply showing why it is time to simplify.

Probably the best book I’ve ever listened to.

This book is hands down one of if not the best book in church structure that I’ve ever listened to. Becoming simple is not that simple, but this book breaks it down in a way that is so simple. A fresh breath in your leadership and new approach to everything related to church and ministry. An absolute MUST READ!!

Repetitive

Simple. Simple. Simple. Great concept and characterization of most churches, but for how simple the concept is, they could have communicated it in much fewer words.

Many pearls of wisdom

I listened to this as a Christian teacher who wishes to simplify my corner of the education sector. There are many crossovers between churches and Christian schools.
