Excellent book on cpm. Done through looking at different movements in church history. After going through the account of the movement, different cpm characteristics are brought it. It is very global in it's view of cpm, not containing to either the east or the west.

The book is a collection of inspiring stories. It tells you of five things that you find in common in movements that are changing the world. You start with a passionate faith that commits to a cause, as they go about in contagious relationships, rapidly mobilising and adapting methods to the things that work.

This book has started a paradigm shift for me. For years Church Planting Movements (CPM) were of little interest to me, seemed less important that investing deeply into a few men. It doesn't have to be either, or, but rather both. The author helped me to see how God's been using the movements in history for advancing the gospel and how the gospel can spread over relational networks over multiple generations of laborers living and discipling among the lost.

This book does a fine job of identifying the driving principles behind great movements of God, and does it with lots of fascinating stories from the story of the church through the centuries. If you want to understand some of the driving forces behind periods of exceptional growth in Christianity, this is a fine resource.

What has worked in the past? This can give indicators and even encouragement as we look forward to advancing the Kingdom. This book gives insight into how the Gospel has advanced drawing samples from many different cultures and contexts as well as historical periods.

This book was helpful in gaining a heart to grow the church further, not just bigger. Easy to read. Incredible awakening to church done the old way. Some hard realities that challenges today's American church, but for the better.

It was motivating to read about historical and current Christian movements that change the world! The only caution is that the author takes a rapid multiplication stance which can result in weak theology and poor discipleship. Worth the read though.
