Editorial Reviews

"[Mancini] gives a compelling rationale for the church to move onand accompanies this rationale with instructive support andchurch-wide challenge. All mission boards and vestries wouldbenefit from the materials contained therein."
—The Rev. Jeffrey A. Mackey, The LivingChurch magazine (Sept. 2008)

Mancini (founder, Auxano consulting group) believes that allchurches need not be megachurches like Willowcreek (IL) orSaddleback (CA). Here, he avoids a mere discussion of churchesworthy of emulation and further crosses denominational lines,having himself worked alongside Baptists, Methodists, Lutherans,and others. Mancini eschews the title consultant ,preferring instead vision navigator . In short, he helpsleaders focus on their own unique cultures and congregationalfingerprints. Once churches grasp that they are one of a kind-muchlike galaxies, fossils, DNA, and sandbanks-they can then, Manciniwrites, unleash their full potential. The book, complete with anappendix as well as logos and icons illustrating various churches'visionary thinking, is strengthened by numerous flow charts,diagrams, graphics, and pithy quotes. It has the potential tounseat Rick Warren's The Purpose-Driven Church  inpopularity. Yet academic libraries may want to pass on this titlefor its admitted lack of supporting empirical evidence. Publiclibraries, on the other hand, would be wise to purchase a copy.With a foreword by inspirational giant Max Lucado.
—C. Brian Smith, Arlington Heights Memorial Lib., IL(Library Journal, May 1, 2008)

    This book was required reading for an Evangelism Training course I am going through. Most in the class had ready other books similar to this but this was a first for me. It was hard for me to get started in it but I forced my way through the reading. When I went back and reread it, it made a lot more sense. Maybe it was difficult because it was new material for me? I did pick up some nuggets that I will carry with me.

    This book is a "must have" if you are called of God in leadership of a church or ministry.It is not a quick read, but a hungry study of it will reveal God and target His plan for you. I have been out of seminary for eighteen years and I regret that this book was not part of my curriculum before I stepped into pastoring. Nevertheless, God is favoring me with it in my life today. May He do likewise for you as you give Him opportunity.
