Unfortunately, this book was an extended "sales-pitch" for how Mark Driscoll's Mars Hill organized their community groups. So, both a little bit dated, and considering the demise of that church, a little bit ironic. House certainly offers some good, common sense ideas for how to avoid, as he memorably calls it, "the awkward drum circle." He advocates for leaning away from too programmatic approach to small groups and encourages organic, natural means of engaging in fellowship and Bible study in small groups. There was some helpful content here, but I think there are better books out there on this topic. I'm being generous and giving three stars, only because I can't give 2.5 stars...I'm a nice guy.
