Asset mapping isn't a new system or theory. It's a way of thinking, a doorway into an "open-sum" perspective rooted in the Bible and common experience. The Power of Asset Mapping, by long-time community developer Luther K.

I read this as part of a church class. We didn't actually do the Quick and Easy Asset Mapping, but I want to! I think it looks very motivating.

The book starts out showing how to do the active asset mapping, then works backward and ends with the biblical principles that support the open-sum thinking that asset mapping is based on. I like how the author just jumps right in with the activity, but the subsequent chapters sometimes seem redundant since they're just more and more specific each time.

Sometimes four-star reviews are simply for books that do exactly what they intend to do from the outset. Having read this, I feel like I can run asset mapping with my congregation, or any group really, and get something out of it. Some of the theory behind it is interesting, though nothing is ground-breaking. This is a functional text, though, not a theoretical one. IF you want to be able to go do asset mapping, read this book.

The author is supposed to be a speaker at a Rural and Small Town Ministry conference in Iowa I will be attending. Looking forward to hearing him!

A useful book. I would like to work through some of the exercises with a really engaged group. Reminds me of some of the continuous quality improvement work I used to do.
