Book Review - Church Revitalization From The Inside Out

Church Revitalization From The Inside Out

By: Robert D. Stuart

Book Reivew

I don't know what I was expecting when I got this book, but I do know it was different than I expected. In one way, I think it was refreshing. It wasn't gimmicky or fadish. There was a total absence of these in the book. Stuart's sole emphasis for church revitalization was on church leadership. In the sense of challenging church leaders, I think this was an excellent book. The only weakness in this regard is that I don't think Stuart gave enough acknowledgement to the various polities and how that in itself is a significant struggle for churches.

As far as church revitalization as a whole, I think there are significant gaps that Robert Stuart leaves. If he had named the book something related to leadership development and church revitalization, then the book wouldn't leave you with gaps. But since the book assumes the topic of church revitalization as a whole, then there is a lot more that needs to be said.

Book Reviews

I am nuts about books. I read on all kinds of topics. I attempt to review each book I read for the sake of my own enrichment as well as conversation starters with others.

Pastoral Ministry

God has called me to be a pastor, and occasionally I have some pastoral thoughts I like to share.

You never know what you will find in an attic! Usually there is a hodgepodge of things buried under dust.
