It's not a bad book, not by any means. It was very accessible and an easy read. It also maintained an outlook that was a little more conservative than I tend to run, marked by the occasional lapse into Evangelicalese. I can read that language, so I got through it, but it's jarring to some.

I think that it's the best and most practical book on house church subject that I read. In down-to-earth style Larry and Floynd give us very practical insights on how to start relation-based fellowship right in your living room. They answers many vital questions about house church dilemma.

Not everything about this book is perfect, but there is much food for thought. The emphasis on relationships is important to me. About halfway through so far.

if you want to know how to do house church, this book is a good place to begin. the author presents HC as one expression of the church, unlike most who try to present HC as THE way to do church.

“The litmus test used to discern if a house church is healthy is simple: The believers in a healthy house church focus on loving Jesus, loving each other, reaching those who don’t know Jesus and respecting the rest of the Body of Christ.” 2 likes
