STARTING A NEW CHURCH
The Church Planter's Guide to Success
ISBN/Prod. Code: 978-0-8307-2966-1
Moore maintains that perhaps our greatest responsibility is to evangelize our own generation and that established churches are unable to do that. In fact, rising generations of Americans live in ignorance of Jesus Christ and have no moral absolutes. The answer, according to Moore, is aggressive church planting. Why? Because new churches focus on the needs of each new generation and present biblical truth in the cultural context that best reaches those people. This book not only lays down the challenge to consider becoming a church planter; at the same time it screens out wishful thinking and focuses on the problems and practical challenges of church planting. This authoritative and edgy message is the next thing in evangelism.
