Since my first encounter with Hybels around 1994, I've been a student and fan. I've listened to hundreds of hours of his material and count him among those who've influenced my thinking. While few of the axioms listed in this book were new to me, I still appreciate the fact that he collected them in one place. I've borrowed many of these lines and use them on a weekly basis. For example, "umbrella of mercy" or "vision leaks" are phrases I use almost daily. One that was new for me? Six by six execution. The idea of pushing on one project for six weeks makes a great deal of sense to me. Six months? No way. Too long. Six days? No, we'd just be getting started. Six weeks is enough time to gather the right team and push the ball down the field a ways.

I also like this genre because it allows one to read in bites. I found that I read this book in pieces and, yes, I was one who bopped around by using the links from each chapter; I did not read it beginning to end.
