now, having listened to this book twice i think i can make a useful review. the book could have been shorter. but, if you need re-enforcement of the method and why it works that should be no problem. the idea and process is useable on first glance and should not be daunting for any congregation no matter size. you don't need a degree or a concentration in the asset process to get it going and it only takes an hour to provide you with a new visionary approach to see your gits and how they can be linked. of course, i am grateful that i can listen to this book and be a fully engaged participant in this process. hopefully you can be in the same box.
i have a background in marketing, but, this book opened me up to looking not at needs but rather gifts/assets as a starting point. it is a completely different approach to strategy. and, i think a much better approach. william
I would first read: Kretzmann, J. P., & McKnight, J. L. (1993). Building communities from the inside out: A path toward finding and mobilizing a community's assets. Skokie, IL: ACTA Publications.
