Carl over a the Revival Blog asked me what ONE book I would recommend to future church planters. Man, that is such a tough question. So many great reads. But if I had to choose one book to give to a church planter-off the top of my head I would recommend Erwin McManus book An Unstoppable Force.
This book is not a specific book on church planting…Instead the book really deals with the idea of movement from a church’s perspective.
From Erwin’s website:
An Unstoppable Force will:
- Challenge you to see God’s vision for the mission and purpose of the church.
- Help you to explore specific changes in the culture that call for immediate change in the church.
- Offer practical ways for your church to find its unique voice and identity to express Christ’s love and faith to your culture.
- Present interactive questions in each chapter to foster discussion about the life of your church, its focus on Christ, and how it can be a richer influence on your culture.
