Planting New Churches in a Postmodern Ageby Ed Stetzer
Synopses & Reviews
"On a per capita basis, new churches win more people to Christ than established churches...So, if we know that new churches reach more people, and if we value reaching the unchurched, we must agree with C. Peter Wagner that, 'The single most effective evangelistic methodology under heaven is planting new churches.' Church planting is gaining new attention because it is a biblical method that works."--from the Introduction
Len Sweet talks about Planting New Churches in a Postmodern Age as that "one-stop, one-shop wonder that makes obsolete all the alternatives."
In this book, Ed Stetzer lays out a case for missional church planting and then describes the process to plant healthy new churches. He combines the theological and the practical in one book. The book looks at cultures and how to reach persons in those cultures through the tools within the cultures themselves. It also provides a new look at emerging trends in churches reaching postmoderns. Then, it provides step by step instructions about how to plant churches in today's world.
Sections include "Basics of Church Planting," which explores the biblical and theological basis for planting, "Church Planting Nuts and Bolts" which provides those essential practical tools, and "Understanding Cultures and Models," which provides fresh insights into reaching unchurched people.
Solid experience (from Stetzer and dozens of examples), Biblical roots, and fresh insights into the postmodern world make this a must read for the church planting hoping to make an impact.
