The premise of this book is good that we would want our church's to be blessed and be a blessing. Though the premise was good and had a good intention, the book itself is poorly written. Not that the author isn't grammatically correct, he is in a camp that puts too much on emotionalism. He puts too much emphasis either, in one part, on man's total responsibility and in other locations seems to give license to the church being idle and waiting for the working of the Holy Spirit. Again, it is a good read but needs to be read with a fine comb.
