This is the first book I have read dedicated to the concept of corporate evangelism. Many simple suggestions are given to aid churches in making visitors feel welcome, and to develop in them a sense of belonging. While many of the suggestions are not new, this book can help a congregation see its primary task of evangelism as an organized effort and make it more efficient. To see the aggregate personlity of a congregation, as a visitor might, is an important insight to effective evangelism and church growth. It also stresses the importance of discipleship training and suggests various programs.
While the book aptly points to effective uses of church space as a proper means of evangelism, I tend to be a bit repelled by the authors' more gaudy suggestions.
I recommend this book to pastors and lay leaders who are looking for better ways to be obedient to Jesus' Great Commission. The book will be far more useful if it is shared widely in the congregation and if leaders can agree how to begin implementing its strategies.
