Reviews - What do customers think about Body Life (Revised & Expanded)?
Excellent book on how to set up a small Fellowship Aug 31, 2008
Our Fellowship started about 20 years ago using this model. As time goes by things change, we are now in the process of trying to get back to the basics outlined in this book.
Classic on Authentic Church Aug 10, 2008
Stedman's book is a classic on the subject of authentic church. I've read many books on church renewal and mission and this one is a landmark of the past. It seems to set the baseline for the beginning of a new exploration on the subject.
Stedman's clear writing style adds much to his arguments. He puts forth a vision of the body of Christ that's pungent and provoking. It's one that many of us have longed for.
I have been reading many books on the church recently and this one is on my top 5 list. I didn't know this was a classic of the past until I did some more research on it. Happily recommended.
STOP! LOOK! LISTEN! Dec 11, 2001
