Item description for Go Big!: Lead Your Church to Explosive Growth! by Bil Cornelius & Bill Easum...

Overview
Bill Easum and Bil Cornelius are two strikingly different, yet surprisingly similar pastors. One undertook to revitalize a moribund mainline church; the other, to plant a new nondenominational congregation. Coming from different generations, their ministries took place under dissimilar circumstances. Yet both have experienced substantial, even explosive, growth in congregational mission and membership. Along the way they learned some important lessons, such as the centrality of strong pastoral leadership, the need for an unhesitant pursuit of excellence in all areas of the church's ministry, and the requirement that you picture an audacious vision for your church and live into that vision. Regardless of the current size of your church, you will find here inspiring, ready-to-implement ideas to help your church go BIG.

Reviews - What do customers think about Go BIG: Lead Your Church to Explosive Growth?

A Church-Renovating Book  Feb 22, 2008
I love the ideas in this book.

As a missionary for many years, I have seen church pastors, leaders, and members with very little Bible training put together wonderful churches. Now that I am a pastor in the US I am amazed at how tenaciously people hold to the ideas that more Biblical training or a deeper devotional life will produce a bigger, stronger church.

It isn't always Bible training or deeper devotion that grows a church. Often what is needed is just a new set of ideas to help navigate a paradigm shift or to see perhaps for the first time what is being done poorly. Our church is probably not alone in being able to say, "We have found the enemy, and it is us."

This book offers fresh perspectives, and I look forward to implementing as much of it as I can.
 
Think BIG  Sep 25, 2007
All across the U.S. there are 10s of thousands of churches in decline or dying, many of which are in growing population areas. Easum and Cornelius put forth a clear, concise, and unmistakeable call to action, to reach out and bring people to Christ and the Church.

This book is worth the price if all it does is shatter the self-imposed limitations that clergy and churches place around themselves in terms of the potential for making disciples in most locations. But there are also many practical suggestions to consider and apply.

The book is written in easy to understand language and a no-nonsense approach. It's short enought to read and start putting into practice, rather than try to decipher what it means. I personally appreciate the direct approach.

Highly recommended.
 
Disappointed  Sep 17, 2007
The pervasive arrogance in this writing made it difficult to glean helpful information, despite all the calls for humility in the text.
 
Essential for churches looking to achieve growth  May 7, 2007
As a leader in my church, I found this book to be a great tool for providing insight and direction into ways to grow your ministry. It is easy to read (I finished it in 3 days) and can be used as the focal point for a series of discussions amongst the chuch leadership.
 
Best Book I Read In '06  Jan 4, 2007
This was one of the most practical and challenging books on church leadership that I have read in many years. As a pastor with 36 years of ministry experience, I found it inspiring as it challenged my thinking in so many areas.
I bought a number of copies and have been passing them on to friends in ministry. Every church leader and aspiring church leader should digest Go Big.
Definitley my top book of 2006.
