Abstract:

Praise for Whole Church. "Mel is a thoughtful analyst of church life today. Best of all--he actually does what he writes about. This book can lead to new levels of engagement for your church."--John Ortberg, author and pastor, Menlo Park Presbyterian Church. "Mel Lawrenz's vision of a local church that actually reflects the wholeness and beauty of God as it engages with the Lord, one another, and the community is a much-needed call back to God's original Plan A - a plan that has too often been cast aside in the name of specialization, church growth, and expediency.". --Larry.
