Needs to be preached in every church in the world!

What made the experience of listening to The Unchurched Next Door the most enjoyable?

The many stories and responses of the responders was fascinating, and the revelation that both the statistics and the stories brought into light was amazing! That is: People are more ready than we think they are! We just have to match the Faith stage to the invitation method.Very, very informative stuff, and I am now listening to it again and using it as fuel for my preaching.

I would love to see Thom S Rainer write another book outlining his survey forms, and instructing local churches how to utilise both the surveying process and the survey results in our own area. I am in semi-rural Australia, and would like to graph my own town/city.

Seriously! I cannot see why this has only scored a 4 star rating so far - this book is transformational, my congregation are sitting there wide-eyed!
