Thom S. Rainer

Zondervan, 2008

We’ve read all the hot books on evangelism, we’ve attended scores of seminars—and still we’re not reaching the unchurched. Eighty to ninety percent of churchless Americans will never enter our culturally relevant, seeker-sensitive doors. What are we missing? Maybe we’ve been asking the wrong people. Instead of consulting the unchurched masses, it’s time we heard what the small but important minority who have recently begun attending ...

Transformational Church: Creating a New Scorecard for Congregations
Ed Stetzer, Thom S. Rainer

B&H Books, 2010

How are we doing? The church, that is. And how are we doing it?

When it does, the deeper emphasis on accountability, discipleship, and spiritual maturity is lost. Ignoring those details, we see fewer lives transformed, Christian influence wane, and churches thin ...
