This book will give direction to the church for many years to come." (George Morris, Institute for World Evangelism)
"[An] excellent book for churches that are contemplating renewal.... [Callahan] understands the need for objective, measurable, and workable methods." (The Presbyterian Survey)
"Callahan has produced a book which should, for many years, be an effective guide for local congregations.... The book is realistic and does not place upon a congregation impossible demands, but holds to realistic hopes.... This book is useful for pastors and employed staff. It can be used by the various organizations within the church. Each organization would do well to read [it]." (Perkins Journal)
