From the heights of biblical theology, to the plains of who does what, these brief chapters are again and again both practical and wise. I happily commend this book.

Multiplying churches through church planting movements involves warfare and wisdom. Multiplying Churches addresses well both of these and I delight in commending it to those willing to be on the front lines.
Daniel L. Akin, President, Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary, Wake Forest, North Carolina
In Multiplying Churches, the authors lay out a vision for church planting that is gospel rich, but helpful and practical.
Ed Stetzer, Billy Graham Chair, Wheaton College, Wheaton, Illinois
Fifteen years ago, the church planting movement was in its infancy. Today, many things have been learned but new challenges lie ahead. Therefore I am glad for the new edition of this book, in which those early lessons can be reviewed and the new horizons faced.
Tim Keller, Redeemer City to City
Church Planting must be the priority of all Christians. ... Steve Timmis has done us all a favour by bringing together these different contributions which illustrate to us not only the uniqueness of our message and the importance of the task but also the many different ways in which God works in people's lives.
Frank Retief, Former Bishop of the Church of England in South Africa
This is not another "how to" book. The authors fully recognise the unique centrality of the church in God's purposes. I hope its intention of stirring us to radical thinking and acting will be fully realised.
