I enjoyed reading the preview copy of Russell Lambert's new book. I think Russell hits the nail on the head as he explains the various vision problems that both churches and pastors have.

Very good book, a smooth easy read, and one that should be required reading; not only for pastors but for every church leader. While scholarly in approach to the subject matter, it is written in such a way that anyone can comprehend.

Pastor Lambert does a great job in presenting this timely information and should be read by all who are concerned about the future of our local churches.
By Bruce Allen
Whenever we consider anything that will help the church grow in its teaching, reaching out, or bringing in we often look to avenues that will help us to achieve our stated goal. We usually gather the information we need from sources that are purposely keyed in such directions. This little book is one of those sources. No pastor or teacher or church member wants to see their church dwindle down and eventually die. To prevent such a mishap one needs to understand the situations that lead to their decline. Lambertís book is a good place to start. It is small yet the author covers a number of different aspects in regard to the Scripture as his basis of thought.

I love the book, on chapter 5 and read all the 5 chapters 3 times or better. It sure has given me a better outlook. Our pastors are not hireling or CEO or employee, The vision given to our pastor is from GOD we should trust in him to do the work our Father sent him to do. STAY FOCUSED ON THE VISION. Thanks for the good read.
