Reviews - What do customers think about The Interventionist?
Schaller at his finest Jun 21, 2001
This is my favorite of Schaller's books! It is designed for church champions and consultants but is a must read by any denominational executive or a person who works with local churches.
It includes some extraordinary diagnostic questions, ideas, and the contrarian statements that Schaller does so well.
It is a book that is useful for any pastor as it has enough nuggets and ideas that it may eliminate some of your need for a consultant in the first place.
A Classic From the Day it Was Published! Sep 4, 2000
Seldom is a book or resource a classic the day it is published. Such was the case with The Interventionist which is both a goldmine and a classic in one.
If you work in a congregation, or are a congregational champion, one of the best things you can do is to buy multiple copies of this book. Keep two for yourself--a paperback copy to read and a hardback copy to save as a collector's item. Then give a copy to each key leader in your organization or active network.
There are two reasons why you ought to invest in this book. First, it has an invaluable conceptual framework for doing church in a way that results in a vital congregational life. Second, it is the definitive work of Lyle Schaller in which he shares more than forty years of experience in congregational intervention.
The key concept the book teaches is how to ask the right questions! For you the key question at this moment should be, how many copies of this book shall I buy?
Invaluable information! Apr 7, 2000
The InterVentionist is packed full of valuable information for anyone who is concerned about resolving problems within the church. Schaller examines issues and offers suggestions from the angle of the overall perspective, all the way down to detailed questions to ask in specific situations. Very thorough and realistic!
