Reviews - What do customers think about On Church Leadership?

Good Read but $10... Really?  Apr 9, 2010
To be blunt, the book is a good read, it has some insightful information in it but to charge $10 for something a little bigger than a Mister Men book is just wrong. Sorry, but nickel and dime-ing people for something this size is greed. Shame on you crossway.
Book read  May 7, 2009
I liked the book. It was short and easy to read. The author did a good job in explaining a complex subject.
Short, to the point, documented.  Mar 30, 2009
There are several aspects to this short book that I wanted to highlight.
First, its short and to the point.
Second, its well documented; foot notes abound.
Third, the author covers opposing opinions and explains where those opinions are coming from.
Fourth, I appreciate the humor with which the author writes. It has a bit of an edge to it and I find it oddly refreshing.
In conclusion, its a fascinating peak at unique church government system. You really can get through it in about 90 minutes. If it intrigues you as it did me, then you can sink further hours into cross-referencing the foot notes.
Why make it harder?  Sep 9, 2008
Mark Driscoll, founding pastor of Mars Hill Church, Seattle, has a gift for teaching. And he uses it. This is a small book - the author has in mind that it will not take more than an hour to read it - but it's a big contrubution to every christian person having questions about christians leadership. It may be controversal, because the Bible is, but Driscoll is honest, clear and,just, gifted.
great series-should be cheaper  Jul 1, 2008
If you are a pastor who is sympathetic with the leadership philosophy of Mars Hill, Mark Driscoll, and the Acts 29 Network, you will love this book. It is a concise treatment of elders, deacons, women in ministry and more. If you have people asking how your church does leadership, and this book accurately describes your polity, then you will find it to be a great tool to give to people who would not take time to read Alexander Strauch's book on eldership. I plan on using this as a starting point for elders in process and the more curios lay leaders. Mark's new RE:Lit label with Crossway will no doubt become a great brand for our time.

This series "a book you'll actually read" will be a great series to give to your busy laypeople who don't have time for a 300 page treatment on one of these topics. Pastors will also find Mark's style refreshing, to the point and completely Jesus centered.

I really hate to say anything negative about this series, as Driscoll and Mars Hill have had a big impact in my life, and because I think the series really fills a gap for short but packed treatments of important topics. But the reality is that when you get the books in the mail and then compare their physical size with their cost, you might feel slightly annoyed. The books are small, thin, short, and paperback. Think of this as a really long pamphlet.

No doubt, Mark had nothing to do with the cost. That's a publisher's choice. Hopefully, crossway will drop the price to something more appropriate like $6.99, with a bulk option of 5 packs or something.

Still, I bought all four, and will buy any further books in the series. Driscoll is always worth the time and money.
