Book 8 of 2010

The JNAC Report of the church to which I am going named that they are in the transition zone between Pastoral and PRogram.  So when I knew I was interviewing with them and then saw this book at the book display at PResbytery I picked it up.  (interestingly, although it is an ALban Institute resource it no longer appears on their website bookstore so it must be out of print)

I am now wondering if it was worth it.  SOme of the book was pretty good.  Of course you need to translate the US bias in places (Canadian churches generally have different numbers for the various sizes).  But the last chapter, the process left me feeling kind of flat.  Maybe it would be of more interest if you were in the process of planning to implement it.

  1. Thanks for reading "Raising the Roof." I hope you will find the time invested well spent one day. I just wanted to let you know that you couldn't find it on our website because of some indexing and search errors, which have been corrected. Here's the url: http://www.alban.org/bookdetails.aspx?id=1004.
