Effective evangelism view : church growth effectively confronts and penetrates the culture/ Gospel and our culture view : church growth lacks a sufficient view of the church, which hinders it from effectively engaging the culture/ Centrist view : church growth is based on an evangelistically focused and missiologically applied theology/ Reformist view : church growth assumes theology but ineffectively employs it to analyze culture, determine strategy, and perceive history/ Renewal view : church growth must be based on a biblical vision of the church as the vital community of the kingdom of God/ Pastoral reflections.

Gaining form and momentum over the second half of the 20th century, the Church Growth movement has become an enormous shaping force on the Western church today. You may love it, you may hate it, but you can't deny its impact. But what exactly is Church Growth? In what ways has the movement actually brought growth to the church, and how effective has it been in doing so? What are its strengths and weaknesses? This timely book addresses such questions.
