Andy Stanley really knows how to lead a church as well as encourage others to do the same.
Don’t settle for mediocrity, give church your best. God demands it!
That being said, because I have followed so much of Andy’s teachings, the book also served as a great reminder. I was almost disappointed as Deep & Wide mentions principles such as “do for one what you wish you could do for all” and “doing what’s fair is not doing what’s right” in passing and though he doesn’t go into detail on some of those things here, they are a great reminder of what I once learned.
And as far as practical application goes, this book gets an A++. I am currently a part time staff member at a very small traditional church. Though I wish the style of the church were different, I feel there are 101 things I can take from this book and do within the next 6 months, none of them requiring the style of the church to change. Chapter 9 talks about environments and caused me to realize the clutter our church has come to accept that needs to be addressed. The chapter on preaching challenged me to step it up a notch in inviting insiders and outsiders to engage with Scripture. And just as I was about to want to change everything for the sake of change, Chapter 12 helped me slow down and realize the necessity of a God-honoring vision as the reason for our change.
The book starts with the magnetic story of how North Point started and the author’s break from his dad’s ministry. There is adequate space given to church history and that foundation. Then pages and pages of thought-provoking ideas and challenges that appealed to both my emotional and systematic side. I have already bought a second copy to give to a friend in ministry and do not plan to wait long until I pull this book out again and measure the progress made on what God spoke to me through these pages. I would have read it faster but my wife kept steeling the book and would not give it back.
Also in the book, Andy uses the term “butt ugly.” I won’t tell you where. I guess you’ll have to read it for yourself.
