Setting Your Church Free by Neil Anderson and Charles Mylander

This book used be titled Extreme Church Makeover and before that it was called Setting Your Church Free so it seems the authors/publishers can't make up their minds.

Be that as it may, this book is fantastic for anyone looking to help walk their church through conflict.

There are twelve chapters devoted to: protect from the devil, start Christ-centered ministries, balance power, choosing correct leadership, leaders who serve, creating a church in communion, finding strengths and weaknesses, dealing with memories, fighting off demonic attacks as well as plans and strategies for success.

At the back of the book you'll find a step-by-step plan and a prayer-action plan.

This is a treasure trove of knowlege and practical application.
Anderson and Mylander really usher you through the process and help you bring clarity to your congregation.

It has to start with a biblical foundation - what do the people believe about themselves? Are they just going through the church motions or is there some past power-play involved?

Every minister needs a copy of this book. Then they need to have their church leaders read this and discuss it.

This could bring healing to so many disfunctional churches.

This book was provided for review, at no cost, by Bethany House Publishing.
