Log Off of YouTube and Read Something: The Multiplying Church

Multiplying ChurchI just finished The Multiplying Church by Bob Roberts.  I didn’t want to put it down from page one.  This is one of the most impactful books I’ve read… ever.  This book isn’t just about church planting.  It’s about a global Jesus movement where disciples live out the gospel and churches sprout; its about churches birthing churches that birth churches; its about the glocal church–acting locally while thinking (and acting) globally.  Roberts brings many insights he’s gained from observing the church exploding in the East (specifically Vietnam, as well as China and Korea), and shows why such explosive kingdom growth isn’t happening in the west.  He writes about disciples being the lowest common denominator, and how Christians–not “professionals”–will drive a glocal Jesus movement of multiplying churches.  He writes about churches becoming church planting centers, and about the family life of a church planter.  So much that I couldn’t probably write a mini-book about his book!

This is something that all churches need to take seriously.  Every preacher, church planter, church leader, and Christian should read this book.  I’ll be revisting this volume often…

About Aaron

Aaron is a follower of Jesus. He's married to his smokin' hot wife Laura and is the father of three adorable girls. He enjoys a robust cigar, a complex root beer, a good movie, writing, football, thought-provoking books, and rousing discussions about subjects you're not supposed to talk about (like theology and politics). Religious people irritate him (because he once was one). He's on a quest to find the perfect dry rub and sauce for ribs.
