This book is especially for you if you ever have left a church meeting wondering if anything was accomplished; had two weeks to go before the Sunday -school year began and needed six more teachers; wondered why a certain, apathetic church member agreed to serve on the church council ;assumed that it is the pastors job to make sure that everything in the church gets done; awakened in the middle of the night worrying about your committee being prepared for its next big project ; spent two months getting a new-church initiative ready only to have it voted down; thought that you church was putting the cart before the horse; or tried to inspire others at church but ended up just as discouraged as they were. This book is especially for you if any of the above scenarios describe something that has happened to you.
I was sold, hook, line and sinker. I purchased the book, rushed home, and could not put it down. The more I read the more it made sense to me that this book, this "Church Monster" is not only speaking about the author's church, but also many other churches that are still living under the same stagnant structures of the mid 1900's. The ideas found in this book are a wonderful fresh look at the church of today and how we can find ways to grow in the ministry of all people together while spending less time in the meeting rut of the past.
