A practical, uplifting and can-do book for the pastor of a "dying" church is like fresh hot rations given to a battle weary soldier on the front line. The case studies are never boring and McIntosh's succinct style of writing provides a thoroughly enjoyable read.

I especially appreciate the following methodologies highlighted in the book:

- Identification of the signs of trouble in the church (Chapter 3) - low morale, downward momentum or plateauing growth, survival mode, passive attitudes, consol
I thought this book provided some great principles to follow if you looking at how to revitalize a church. It gave some personality profile information to help a leader better determine their style of leadership and how that relates to revitalization. The 13 principles provided can be read individually or in succession to each other. Either way, many if not all of them are helpful to consider.
