Item description for Planted: Finding Your Place in the Church Today by Robert Gay & Bill Hamon...
Overview In Planted: Finding Your Place in the Church Today, Robert Gay aptly demonstrates that while the Lord desires for every believer to be planted, the concept of commitment to the local body demonstrated by many who regard themselves as Christian is alien to God's will for their lives. Until we become committed afresh, we risk missing the harvest of fruit borne by the blessing of being secured in good ground. Confronting "church issues" head on, Gay teaches with clarity and compassion that God is the Master Gardener who lovingly tends to every individual planted in His garden.
Publishers Description "It seems as though there are many in the body of Christ today that have placed the church, the gathering of believers, last on their list. No longer is it a priority. It takes a back seat to other things they have going on in their lives." Such powerful comments adorn the pages of Robert Gay's new work, Planted.

Robert Gay, just another power hungry pastor Jul 20, 2008
I wish someone who was such a bad judge of character hadn't been picked up and published. It's embarassing to the christian community that someone who is so self-absorbed and so ignorant of the truth would be able to take luxury cruises quarterly. I wonder where the tithes in his church are really going? One can't help but notice the narcissism of a man who would only put himself and his wife on a website built for the whole congregation. It seems less like his church is giving back to the community and more like lining his personal pockets. "Do not receive an accusation against an elder except from two or three witnesses. Those who are sinning rebuke in the presence of all, that the rest also may fear. I charge you before God and the Lord Jesus Christ and the elect angels that you observe these things without prejudice, doing nothing with partiality" (1 Timothy 5:19-21, NKJV).
Excellent Material for believers in the local church Jun 26, 2007
This book should be read by every believer. I wish I had had this book 12 years ago when we started our church. We use it as a gift for people visiting our church. I feel it will revolutionize the way people think about the local church and their place in the body of Christ
