I can't think of a better summary for The Big Idea than it's own subtitle: "Focus the message - Multiply the impact". In their debut book, Dave Ferguson, Jon Ferguson, and Eric Bramlett put together a succinct summary for designing church services (and structuring churches) to center on a single "Big Idea" instead of multiple small ideas that can get lost to church attenders in an information overload scenario. This book should be a must-read for church planting teams, but one of its greatest strengths is that the messages conveyed and the practical tips are applicable for any leadership position - in the church or secular world.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0310272416, Paperback)

Community Christian Church embraced the Big Idea and everything changed. They decided to avoid the common mistake of bombarding people with so many 'little ideas' that they suffered overload. They also recognized that leaders often don't insist that the truth be lived out to accomplish Jesus' mission. Why? Because people's heads are swimming with too many little ideas, far more than they can ever apply. The Big Idea can help you creatively present one laser-focused theme each week to be discussed in families and small groups. The Big Idea shows how to engage in a process of creative collaboration that brings people together and maximizes missional impact. The Big Idea can energize a church staff and bring alignment and focus to many diverse church ministries. This book shows how the Big Idea has helped Community Christian Church better accomplish the Jesus mission and reach thousands of people in nine locations and launch a church planting network with partner churches across the country. This book is part of the Leadership Network Innovation Series.
