Simple Church, by Rainer and Geiger

Book Review – Simple Church: Returning to God’s Process for Making Disciples, by Thom Rainer and Eric Geiger

Its a simple book about simple church written in a really simple way. I guess thats the idea of the book and it will probably appeal to people who do not need to know the historical evolution of simple organic church or how it compares with other models. Its more of a get down and do it book. Its full of real-life-examples and stuff-of-life-anecdotes which I guess some people like. The large print makes me think it was written with older people in mind. Personally, I prefer a bit more meat on my dinner plate and would rather point people to books on simple church with more substance. But any book that encourages Simple Church has to be worth a read.

    We just reading Simple church last spring and it revolutionized the way we thought and did church. It was one of the best books I’ve read this year. But one interesting insight as we have applied it is that church should and can be simple for those in the church. But for me and the other staff who are involved intimately in the design and the process – it is nothing simple, but rather it can be very complex and a lot of hard work to create a simple church.
