If you have read Senge's "The Fifth Discipline" you will have a good understanding of what this book is all about. However while excellent, Senge's work is written from a secular/humanist worldview while the Cat and the Toaster is thoroughly Christian in its foundation.
Don't expect a cookie-cutter formula in this work. There is no formula for successfully overcoming the complexities that are the results of humans living together in systems, be they churches, mosques, small town or large cities. (this work is written from the perspective of work done in Boston) But do expect your eyes to be opened to a fascinating and promising way of thinking deeply (not a common theme these days) and carefully about the plans you make for overcoming the increasing complexities of human life.
