Rick Shrader‘s Review:
This is a 2001 reprint of the book by Getz in the line of many books on the church. This book grew out of the experience Getz had starting the Fellowship Bible Church in Dallas. Howard Hendricks credits Getz with pioneering the Bible Church movement through these experiences. In many ways the book is typical of many church growth books–“I don’t know why, God just blessed us”–when in fact the book is a text for church growth methodologies. Getz is not so far out as many mega-church men, but still stretches my comfort zone.
