Author : Thom S. Rainer, Eric Geiger

Based on case studies of four hundred American churches, Simple Church, by authors Thom Rainer and Eric Geiger, proves that the process for making disciples has quite often become too complex. Simple churches are thriving, and they are doing so by taking these four ideas to heart: Clarity. Movement. Alignment. Focus.

Each idea is examined here, simply showing why it is time to simplify. Simple Church clearly calls for Christians to return to the simple gospel-sharing methods of Jesus. No bells or whistles required, so to speak.

The simple revolution has begun. From the design of the iPod to the uncluttered Google home page, simple ideas are changing the world.
