For many church leaders, struggling to cope with internal problems, church planting does not even appear on the agenda of things to be considered. But - how do we reach this lost generation in which we have been placed? Multiplying Churches, written from Acts 29's years of experience, unpacks how church plants can be used not only to reach people with the Gospel, but to encourage an entire church family to be actively involved in doing so. This serves as a timely reminder that mission needs to be our identity rather than our event.

Note: This book is not an updated version of the book published in 2000. The core convictions remain the same and some material has been reused. But most of the content is new. That’s because we’ve learnt important lessons. But it’s also because we face new challenges today.

From the heights of biblical theology, to the plains of who does what, these brief chapters are again and again both practical and wise. I happily commend this book.

Fifteen years ago, the church planting movement was in its infancy. Today, many things have been learned but new challenges lie ahead. Therefore I am glad for the new edition of this book, in which those early lessons can be reviewed and the new horizons faced.

Tim Keller

Senior Pastor, Redeemer Presbyterian Church, New York City, New York

This is not another "how to" book. The authors fully recognise the unique centrality of the church in God's purposes. I hope its intention of stirring us to radical thinking and acting will be fully realised.
