—The Rev. Jeffrey A. Mackey, The LivingChurch magazine (Sept. 2008)
Mancini (founder, Auxano consulting group) believes that allchurches need not be megachurches like Willowcreek (IL) orSaddleback (CA). Here, he avoids a mere discussion of churchesworthy of emulation and further crosses denominational lines,having himself worked alongside Baptists, Methodists, Lutherans,and others. Mancini eschews the title consultant ,preferring instead vision navigator . In short, he helpsleaders focus on their own unique cultures and congregationalfingerprints. Once churches grasp that they are one of a kind-muchlike galaxies, fossils, DNA, and sandbanks-they can then, Manciniwrites, unleash their full potential. The book, complete with anappendix as well as logos and icons illustrating various churches'visionary thinking, is strengthened by numerous flow charts,diagrams, graphics, and pithy quotes. It has the potential tounseat Rick Warren's The Purpose-Driven Church inpopularity. Yet academic libraries may want to pass on this titlefor its admitted lack of supporting empirical evidence. Publiclibraries, on the other hand, would be wise to purchase a copy.With a foreword by inspirational giant Max Lucado.
