NextChurch.Now is loaded, I mean loaded, with information about starting new faith communities or helping your current faith community draw persons in modern society to a deeper connection with God. Two things make this book particularly important. First, the author makes scriptural connections that are utterly relevant. Second, the indepth research and knowledge about our culture and about leading persons to lives of love and discipleship create a combination that few have been able to articulate with such clarity and hopefulness. I was completely caught off guard by how moved I was by some of the real life stories and illustrations that bring concepts to reality. Craig's insights on leadership, knowing your people, ministry with new people groups, core values for a changing world, establishing a healthy core group for a new faith community, shaping an effective discipleship system, launching a new faith community (a new church or a new faith community within an existing congregation), and experienced based worship will benefit those new to this ministry along with the most experienced persons. You will not be disappointed because this book delivers. I have no hesitation in recommending this book.
