Product Description

The 'Church Growth Movement' has influenced the way that Pastors and Church Leaders assess what is helpful to Church Life. Drama has become a major facet of evangelism and worship with preaching as the main victim.
David Eby contends that one of the main reasons is that preaching has become third rate in many churches but he maintains that it is God's main weapon for both evangelism and the edification of believers

Publisher's Description

Foreword by John MacArthur. Do pastors and church leaders today really need a wake-up call to return to the apostolic priorities of preaching and prayer as the primary means to accomplish church growth? In an age in which the church has become infatuated with pragmatism, success models, sociological methodologies, management techniques and marketing, the answer is a resounding "Yes." The goal of this book is to exhort and encourage pastors and church leaders to escape the full court press of expediency and to restart as offense of biblical priorities and methods. The church will not impact society until she regains her love for preaching and a no-compromise commitment to sound, biblical exposition.


The value of this MENTOR title (first published in 1996 and revised in 2009) is that it not only shows us where the problems are but gives us a healthy reminder of the essentiality of prayer and preaching.

Author Bio

David Eby has pastored independent and Presbyterian churches in the US for 34 years. He and his wife of 40 years are now missionaries in Uganda. David teaches at Westminster Theological College and is the Dean of Westminster Theological Seminary in Kampala, which he helped to establish in 2007. He has studied hundreds of volumes of literature of the church growth movement, is committed to training East African pastors in biblical church growth to lead healthy, God-centered, grace-saturated, Christ-exalting churches through gospel-driven preaching.

Editorial Reviews

Dave Eby has put his finger on something very crucial, namely the absence of any emphasis on preaching in the Church Growth Movement... it's focus on the book of Acts is compelling
It offers no ‘quick fix' for the church in our day, but it does call us back to be preachers of the word, dependent upon God. The author states: "I want to motivate pastors to return to the glorious task of prayer-bathed proclamation as the primary means of church growth". Such a clarion call is desperately needed as the church approaches a new millennium of evangelism.
