Please try again later. I will be brief. The part I would tend to disagree with it the idea of a sword in one hand and a Bible in the other and calling it evangelism. It may be said that this is just the way the gospel spread, but one has to wonder if the gospel really was spread or just got diluted by bringing in all of the paganism from false religions and calling them Christian. One person found this helpful 2 people found this helpful. This is one of the best I have read on the subject. This book is referenced by just about everyone else in this area of study. I especially like the theological basis for growing churches.

Understanding Church Growth
Deep and very profound! Well researched and full of practical examples on church growth. I strongly recommend it to every pastor and church worker. Not to forget every student studying theology. This is a great and invaluable resource! One person found this helpful. Very inspirational for a Pastor who is conscious of his ministry of preaching the gospel. I chose to have this book in my Kindle because it is one of my reference books for more than thirty years.
I prefer its second edition , however. Along with "The Bridges of God," this book is a must for those who want to understand the classic theory of such an important area of ecclesiological and missiological studies. Very practical and balanced view. This revised edition is the place to get both the broadest and deepest exposure to the thinking of one of the twentieth century's most important missiologists.
It is better than the first edition in applying the theses developed in India and elsewhere to the North American situation. It is better than the third edition, revised and edited by his student C. Peter Wagner, in conveying McGavran's passion. Although the book includes biblical and theological research and reflection, case studies from contemporary missions on many continents, and illustrations from little-known periods of older church history, much is presented with the passion of a good sermon or courtroom argument.
The major thesis is that "missions" or "evangelism" must be seen as the task of persuading people to become committed followers of Jesus Christ and responsible members of local churches. The secondary thesis is that this can be accomplished only by understanding the receiver of the Christian message as well as the message itself.
