Do you agree that Christianity is more effective as a movement than as an institution in evangelizing non-believers? This book explains why that always has been true. Are you engaged in designing a church growth strategy? Rather than reinvent the wheel, learn from others. Study this account of an exceptionally coherent and effective strategy that won the west. --Lyle E. Schaller, Author
George Hunter III imaginatively applies what he takes to be the major themes of the Celtic Christianity practiced in the British Isles between the fifth and tenth centuries to the situation facing churches in the secularised western world today. --Ian Bradley, University of St Andrews
Dr. Hunter has written a rare manuscript in that it is both informative and interesting reading. Those of us who take the Great Commission seriously will learn from this scholarly effort why the old methods of evangelizing no longer work. --William H. Hinson, First United Methodist Church, Houston, Texas
