Publisher's Description

This is a book for pacesetters -- church leaders who desire to help their churches break free of the things that turn them in on themselves and keep them from being outward-looking and outward-moving communities of Jesus Christ. The ingrown church is a common phenomenon. It is the "norm" for contemporary evangelical and Protestant churches. But ingrownness is a pathology. It can destroy the vital spiritual health of a church. It must, therefore, be combated with the norms of Scripture. And that is why this book was written. Outgrowing the Ingrown Church is a masterful mix of biblical principle, objective analysis, and personal experience. It traces the author's own growing awareness of the problem of ingrownness in his calling as a pastor, seminary professor, and evangelist/missionary. In his own discovery of the power and presence of God he discovered the tendency of the church to live by its own power and resources. This is a book written to help change churches by changing the individuals who read it. It offers one an unparalleled challenge to be evaluated, revitalized, and then used by God for the work of ministry. Thus it is a book not merely for pastors, but for the whole body of Christ. "I have never been as excited about any book concerning church growth as when I read this book . . . . (His biblical) principles, if followed, transform individual lives and then lead to a movement within a church to change the whole congregation," writes John Guest in the foreword.

    Dr. Miller still says somethings few others dare to say. (Peterson and Reeder are a couple of others).Especially about the fleshly conspiracy between the ingrown congregation and the faith compromising pastor. Devastating analysis of fleshly immaturity and bold grace for redirecting Christians and the church to grow up into Christ and get on with the "great cause". Visionary pastoral leadership can be recovered with the gospel of the Cross at the center...if I repent.

    For pastors of established churches looking for biblical foundations to reignite a vision this is the book. God's Word can be trusted by his leaders and congregations can sense the revitalization they seek when they trust the promises of God to build his church. A must read for pastors in stagnant or declining churches.
