What Separates Good Churches From Great Ones?
Real truth is always worth digging for- and usually eludes conventional wisdom and superficial statistics. That's why George Barna is a bottomline asset for your church.
More members aren't the answer. Nor are more programs or a burgeoning bank balance. Backed by rock-solid, leading-edge research, Barna shows you how highly effective churches get that way- the principles and practices they share in common that set them apart.
This is better than light reading. In fact, it's brilliantly illuminating.
"Whether you like George Barna or not, you can't afford to not read him. (Incidentally, I like him.)"
- Jack Hayford, Pastor, The Church On The Way, Van Nuys, CA
"Barna lays out proven strategies for any church. I'm excited about the impact The Habits of Highly Effective Churches could have and highly recommend it!"
- Bill McCartney, Founder and President, Promise Keepers
"This book is the silver bullet that kills common Christian misconceptions about 'successful' congregations. Success is built on healthy habits- God's wisdom!"
- Dr. John C. Maxwell, Author, Speaker and Founder of the INJOY Group
