The simple revolution is here. From the iPod design to Google’s uncluttered homepage, simple ideas are changing the world.
Multi-awarded #1 national bestseller Simple Church guides Christians back to the simple gospel-sharing methods of Jesus. No bells or whistles required. Based on case studies of 400 American churches, Thom Rainer and Eric Geiger prove the disciple-making process is often too complex. Simple churches thrive by taking four ideas to heart: Clarity. Movement. Alignment. Focus.
Simple Church examines each idea, clearly showing why it is time to simplify.

Many of the church leaders we talk to are seeking an escape from the not-so-simple life. This book is not about another church model. Church leaders have been exposed to plenty of models, and have many on their bookshelves. Or worse, many church leaders have blended a bunch of models into one schizophrenic plan. If that is the case, neither the leader nor the people in the church are really sure what that church is all about. This pattern is seen all the time. But no new program will be pushed here. If anything, this book encourages eliminating some things, to streamline. This book will help design a simple process of discipleship for a church. It will help implement a personally chosen model. It will help simplify.
