Publisher's Description

Andy Stanley’s bestselling and award-winning vision for the local church is now available in softcover. New bonus content includes a study guide, church staff helps, and an interview with Andy on the most frequently asked questions about Deep and Wide.

With surprising candor and transparency pastor Andy Stanley explains how one of America’s largest churches began with a high-profile divorce and a church split.

But that’s just the beginning…

Deep and Wide provides church leaders with an in-depth look into North Point Community Church and its strategy for creating churches unchurched people absolutely love to attend.

For the first time, Andy explains his strategy for preaching and programming to "dual audiences": mature believers and cynical unbelievers. He argues that preaching to dual audiences doesn’t require communicators to "dumb down" the content. According to Stanley, it’s all in the approach.

You’ll be introduced to North Point's spiritual formation model: The Five Faith Catalysts. Leaders responsible for ministry programing and production will no doubt love Andy’s discussion of the three essential ingredients for creating irresistible environments.  For pastors willing to tackle the challenge of transitioning a local congregation, Andy includes a section entitled: Becoming Deep and Wide.

If your team is more concerned with who you are reaching than who you are keeping, the expanded edition of Deep & Wide will be more than a book you read; it will be a resource you come back to over and over!

"Couldn't be prouder of my son, Andy. And I couldn't be more excited about the content of this book. I wish a resource like this existed when I was starting out in ministry."

- Dr. Charles Stanley, Founder, In Touch Ministries

"Deep and Wide pulls back the curtain for all of us to see what is required behind the scenes to build a prevailing church.  I was both challenged and inspired by this book."

- Bill Hybels, author of Just Walk Across the Room

"The most common question I get from pastors is, ’How do I get the people in my church to be open to change?’ From now on my answer will be, ’Read Deep and Wide by Andy Stanley’.  Thanks Andy.  Great book!"

- Craig Groeschel, Pastor, LifeChurch.TV, author, It: How Churches and Leaders Can Get It and Keep It

"It is completely false that churches must sacrifice quality to get quantity, must artificially choose between evangelism and discipleship, or cannot have depth and growth at the same time. Few prove this fact better than the ministry of Andy Stanley, who has grown North Point Community Church on purpose and with passion. No Christian leader can afford to miss this book."

- Rick Warren, pastor, Saddleback Church; author, The Purpose Driven Church

    He keeps saying we did this and we did that, but does not seem to give credence to what the Holy Spirit is doing through them. Sounds like a man made system for church. He also states in the book that unless you agree to have your testimony video recorded and played in church they will not baptize you. Wow Really.

    Very disappointed, I was surprised at the lack of scripture references, some of the few used are taken out of context, and I was even more surprised at how some of the content actually CONTRADICTS The Bible!!! So again, i would not recommend! However i would encourage everyone that when reading any book, by any author, that you pray for a discerning spirit. Let God be true, and every man a liar.

    This book is not about theology, but strategy. Essential theology never changes but strategy always changes over time. This book is about strategies to reach the unchurched. If you care about reaching those who do not know Christ or are not part of a Christian community, then you need to read this book. The first section of the book reviews Andy's familial background, but the rest of the book is what you really want to read.

    I honestly feel like this is a must read for certain people in ministry. It isn't going to be for everyone and that's understandable, but if you're a pastor or minister who is unsatisfied with what YOU have been doing, much like I was, then this book may just change your like AND ministry around. I am so joyed that a pastor friend of mine bought me this, one of the greatest gifts I've ever received. Andy does a very good job of explaining why we hide behind so many silly excuses in ministry when we aren't experiencing a "THRIVING" congregation. He exposed quite a few of my own silly hiding places and I'm thrilled that he did. We often get the Adam syndrome, and when we are ashamed of what's going on in our ministry we jump in a bush and hide instead of run and scream trying to get in God's presence. I'm not sure I would take his every thought and idea, seeing how Atlanta isn't a small town like I live in, but through the Holy Spirit of God, this advice will come alive for you and you will see how Jesus would love to have you implement these strategies in the local Church He's planted you in. Read and be blessed.
