Felicity Dale is no stranger to those in the “simple church” movement. As the author of several books on the house-church planting process, Dale steps back to show how everyday people can be involved in church planting regardless of their background, education or social status. The “army of ordinary people” is made up of people you would meet in a typical day on the streets of your town.

At the root of the book is the premise that the ‘simple church’ style of ministry is the preferred method for churches begun today. Dale brings out examples of people who were disenchanted with ‘legacy churches’ and who found a reality check of sorts in the ‘simple church’ movement. A review of the book is not the place to debate the legitimacy of her position; but it is this reviewer’s opinion that her thinking is flawed in this regard.

Written to encourage those within the movement and those considering a change of church venue, the book has a high emotion factor. The personal accounts are heart-moving and cockle-warming, yet one is left to consider if there is more than just a ‘good story’ to promote what is being suggested: an abandonment of church as many have known it in favor of a freestyle church without walls or structure.

Each chapter concludes with a Scripture-based lesson intended to bring the personal account into a clear Biblical focus. Dale is quick to marshal evidence in support of her position, but the evidence has a distinct Charismatic aroma and flavor to it.

The book’s by-line claims that it contains “stories of real-life men and women simply being the church.” It does faithfully succeed in that regard. This reviewer was left wishing that more time would have been spent by these real-life men and women knowing the church they were attempting to be. – Charles L. Eldred, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
