JeaM1 Stars Out Of 5How people growMarch 16, 2017JeaMQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0The WAY this book was used began the downward spiral of a long time influential internationally ministering church. Cloud and Townsend teams frequently visited our church teaching their " life team" and "process group" approach. This and other Cloud and Townsend books give examples of incidents where bible its used in a Knuckle head way" then promotes group structures and methods specificly designed to not use the bible. The result in my church was that so so so many people and were cautioning, warning, and instructing others not to use their bibles. My church of 30 years imploded...half the pastors left...most of the people left... churches we started years ago threatened to withdraw fellowship if we continued this path...and so forth.
I personally have had such a positive loving relationship with God and in His word. I think it would be better to instruct people to be sensitive and compassionate rather than removing the bible so that people won't misuse it.
General O'Hara5 Stars Out Of 5AN EYE-OPENER!April 9, 2016General O'HaraQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I am so glad I got this book! Its fairly easy to understand. There some slow chapters, that took me awhile to read (I am slow reader), but overall it helped me to understand how to grow and help others to grow. A lot of A-ha moments.
(Also, I bought a workbook - don't bother with workbook, it was a disappointment, I thought questions were geared for seminary students, not a simple growth group.)

Very insightful. Lots of wisdom shared. It shows the essential process that make people grow, how those processes fit into a biblical understanding of growth in God & in life, how spiritual growth & real life issues are one & the same, the responsibilities of pastors, counselors, & others like small group leaders (ME) who assist people in growing & your own responsibility for your personal growth. I appreciate the knowledge and wisdom shared to help people grow including myself!
