Product Description

It's a question hundreds of pastors ask every day: What is the best way to grow?

A lot of books give a lot of answers, but the best one comes from Scripture. Word-Centered Church brings that answer into sharp focus. Written by Jonathan Leeman, editorial director for the reputable ministry 9Marks, Word-Centered Church offers a thorough treatment of one of God's greatest concerns: growing His people and growing His church.

As simple as the concept may seem, it's one that many churches miss, and to their own detriment. Because when churches center everything they do on God's Word—when the pulpit ministry gives direction to every aspect of the church's life—growth happens God's way. God's Word is what creates the church, and it's what sustains it, too.

Theological and practical, Word-Centered Church focuses on how the church hears, responds to, discusses, implements, and is transformed by Scripture. It's not about high-octane production, superstar personalities, or postmodern entreaties, but stuff that is really old, really good, and really powerful.

Word-Centered Church is the ministry-model book that churches need, because it advances the model God designed. For anyone who wants to grow or help others grow, Word-Centered Church is indispensable.

  • Every church leader should read this book

    Posted By: deanlentini on 10/31/2017

    Word-Centered Church is nothing new and that in itself is wonderful. Jonathan Leeman brings an ancient thought of basing all aspects of the church on the Word of God back to the modern church. When many churches today laud themselves as “Bible-believing,” Leeman goes even further to show that everything the local church is to do flows from the Bible. The Word is the spiritual food of the church and Leeman walks the reader through understanding how to have a proper diet of the Word throughout the week not just on Sundays. One of the most helpful aspects of Word-Centered Church was seeing worship as essentially reciting the Word of God back to God Himself. This is beautiful thought as it’s both true but also logical in that what words could better describe God than God’s own Word? Every church leader should read this book and truly grasp the centrality of the Word in the life of the church.
