I first came across Bil Cornelius (Yes, he spells his first name with one "L") at the ChurchPlanters.com conference last year. He taught a break out session on creative service planning that was absolutely filled with great thoughts and ideas. Truthfully, the session was more about how to lead and grow your church than planning a service and I took a lot of notes. I also took note of Bil himself. He seemed down to earth and it was readily apparent that he just wanted to help other church planters. He had his wife with him that day too and you could tell that they have a wonderful relationship. I was truly impressed with this dude.
I simply can't stress how great this little book (129 pages) is. I started highlighting important stuff in yellow in chapter one and now almost my entire copy is dripping yellow ink. The book is filled with so much wisdom and direction. The pull quotes alone would be worth the price of the book IMHO.
I like practical books and this one is just that. It's written by two men that have obviously seen it all, or at least most of it, and they shoot straight throughout the book. It's like some incredible church growth and leadership conference in a book format.
The Bill's don't pull any punches. I found myself convicted and challenged. I felt like those two guys "lovingly" kicked me in the seat of my pants. They inspired me and helped increase my vision for what my church could and should be.
Again, two thumbs up for this book. I wish every pastor I knew had a copy.
In the last chapter they mention that they plan to release a series of books like this one. They say that the next three are going to cover small groups, children's ministry and worship. I can't wait. I want to pre-order mind today!
This book is worth the price if all it does is shatter the self-imposed limitations that clergy and churches place around themselves in terms of the potential for making disciples in most locations. But there are also many practical suggestions to consider and apply.
The book is written in easy to understand language and a no-nonsense approach. It's short enought to read and start putting into practice, rather than try to decipher what it means. I personally appreciate the direct approach.
I have been in business leadership for 12 years and pastoring for 15. I was cut to the core on what the vision for God's family is supposed to be and why he chooses only the best leaders to fulfill it. This book motivated me to cut through my fear and not settle for small things. Simply loved it.
