Brad House 2011
This book is a great resource for anyone who is starting a community group or currently leads one or currently attends one–so anybody really. It gives practical ideas alongside practical theology. This is a rarity in the canon of books on community/discipleship. Normally books in this genre spend 300 pages convincing you that you should have community groups. I already know that–give me some ideas.
The job descriptions in the back are very interesting and something that I will definitely utilize in the future.
House spends a good amount of time explaining how community groups are to be missional and contextual within your neighborhood. These chapters alone are worth the price of the book.
I have lots of good to say–go buy it and use it.
