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 reviewers 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 books 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
