Reviews - What do customers think about I Refuse to Lead a Dying Church!?

Excellent and practical - A must read  May 30, 2008
This is the best ministry book I have read in years. Refreshing and practical insights into what it takes to turn a church around. Written from a pastors view point it hold scads of good information for every church member who wants to see their church thrive. A MUST READ Book
There is more good stuff in these 122 pages than in volumes of "how to" books by 'Mega Church' bestselling authors.
A framework to think within  Mar 19, 2008
Perhaps because I pastor a tiny rural church with no attenders under 45 years of age, I don't think everything in this book will apply to my situation. But I liked it well enough that I am asking the members of my church council to read it. We're trying to assess what kind of a future we can have, and this book offers some options.
I Refuse to Lead a Dying Church, Nixon  Mar 11, 2008
a must read, a guide, a template for all denominations struggling with decreased attendance, budget shortfalls, and His Spirit often missing in the sanctuary. The "job description" for professional and lay leadership. The motivator that can take us from the talk to the walk.

Lead to Refuse  Mar 3, 2008
This is an amazing book. We are doing a book study on it real soon.
Really got me excited!  Dec 5, 2007
Working with some churches on living out God's mission of making disciples of Christ is just plain hard work. Paul Nixon encourages us, teaches us, and inspires us to get excited about the challange of growing, not dying.
