“This book provides a welcome theological foundation and historical framework for church planting, as well as the missiological urgency. It makes a significant contribution both theoretically and practically. Murray’s insights and experience will energize church planting efforts across this continent.” — Eddie Gibbs, Donald A. McGavern Professor of Church Growth, School of World Mission, Fuller Theological Seminary.
“Too often books on church planting forcus on ‘how,’ with little attention to the ‘why’ and the ‘what.’ Stuart Murray, on the other hand, contextualizes church planting within a theology of the mission of God and the kingdom of God. he is to be commended for looking at church planting in a post-Christendom context.” — Lois Barrett, Commission on Home Ministries, General Contference Mennonite Church
