I looked at several books for instruction on outreach, and this one stands out as being a practical guide that our church can pick up an use. The methods have been field tested at 9 assorted churches, and things that sound good but don't work, or that only worked in some of the churches, were culled out. The result is laid out in terms of clear concepts, without excess verbiage. It was discouraging to look at the other outreach books that present the material as a weighty tome. This is material that needs to permeate the entire congregation, in something substantially less than 20 years!
While on vacation, I met a pastor who is part of Mr. Harney's work at Shoreline Community Church in Monterey, CA. As we were talking, he recommended Organic Outreach for Churches. I really appreciate Mr. Harney's sober and humble approach to outreach on a personal and corporate level. He didn't make promises nor guarantees other than what God has promised in His word. I highly recommend this book for pastors who want to see their churches do all of the Great Commission.
