Openness of people’s hearts we must gauge the spiritual receptivity of our community before planting a church If the people are not yet open to the Gospel the first step is to cultivate their heartsRolling Rocks – momentum is also key to the success of new churches If God truly builds his church then our job is not to start from scratch but rat This was one of those rare cases where I agreed with the author s points but not always with how he got there His points about organic growth spiritual readiness of the area and cultivation of the community are spot on However I can only give it three star because he seemed to ruin valid points by trying to find biblical evidence in incidental parts of scripture that really were not about the points he wanted to make It doesnt mean he was wrong just that he was trying to prove what he didn t need to and often did so by reading major ideas into scripture where it didn t really fit He also made some generalizations about other forms of church that while not critical were grossly overstated and innaccurate He used stereotypes while at the same time not judging those stereotypesStill worth the read with many great points but just keep a clear eye on some of his arguments
