"The Missional Leader paints a realistic picture ... of what life could look like among churches willing to enter the chaos [of the world] and make lasting change little by little." (Christianity Today, Fall 2006)
"Alan J. Roxburgh and Fred Romanuk are two of the few people in the world today who understand how we can create an environment for the missional transformation of the church for the postmodern world. Every church leader should read this book!"
—Rev. Dr. Clark D. Cowden, evangelist presbyter, Presbytery of San Joaquin, Presbyterian Church
"Discontinuous change wreaks havoc among congregations and pastors who aren’t familiar with the new terrain. When it comes to navigating this new land, Roxburgh and Romanuk have my ear and gratitude. Effective, dependable, useful . . . their wisdom is helping retool our congregation for daring and robust witness. And among my students—who feel change deep in their bones, both its threats and opportunities—this book is a vital companion as they begin their ministries."
—Chris William Erdman, senior pastor, University Presbyterian Church; adjunct faculty, MB Biblical Seminary Biblical Seminary

But not to me. The overall idea is okay, but the much touted (by the authors) spirituality is jejune, not coming from much experience.Published on January 22, 2013 by Amazon Customer

An excellent must read for the church leader. It's worth the cost of the book to read chapter three concerning missional church cycles.Published on September 30, 2009 by Marc L. Kelley
