Lynne and Bill put there thoughts together about the early days of the church and showed a wonderful picture of what God can do when he has people who will follow his will for their life. It was brutally honest and showed both sides of Christian ministry, the good and the not so good. I absolutely loved this book! You will see the vision, heart, and passion that launched an international movement.

Rediscovering Church is the candid story of Willow Creek Community Church's phenomenal growth, from 100 members meeting in a Palatine, Illinois, movie theater to its present Sunday morning attendance of 15,000. Bill Hybels and his wife, Lynne, tell about Willow Creek's beginnings, its struggles, the philosophy behind its success, and the strategies that have made it a model for church growth. The first half of the book, written by Lynne Hybels, explores the early years of Willow Creek and the personal accounts behind one of this century's most remarkable church stories. It offers an honest look at the ways God has used both the strengths and weaknesses of His people, creating a church of believers who have had tremendous impact for Christ in their community. In the second half of Rediscovering Church, Bill Hybels helps you apply the strengths of Willow Creek's ministry philosophy to your own congregation's mission. From mission statements to developing leadership, making sound financial decisions, and handling growth, Bill stresses that God wants to build His church to be an effective and committed community of faith that reaches out to a hurting world, to be the body of Christ in real and tangible ways. Rediscovering Church draws on the experiences of Willow Creek to show how one fellowship crystallized its mission and methodology, its vision and values. The Willow Creek story provides an example that churches and individuals alike can turn to for inspiration, encouragement, and a means of uncovering the pattern for their own unique mission and ministry.

I have been a student of the church for the past eight years, and a few years ago I started reading Acts looking for principles to guide the church into the 21st Century. Then I read 'Rediscovering Church,' and I was amazed by the parallels. Much attention has been given to the "Seeker Philosophy" of Willow Creek, yet this book points to the heart of their growth!

Lynne and Bill describe their vision and calling to build
a new type of church . One that centres on leading
unchurched to the church and to Christ. I believe that
even small church's such as my own can benefit greatly from
their insight on how to relate to today's people.

Their hurts and struggles are also presented candidly for
our protection

I have read the reviews, and understand that some people do not agree with the book's principles. That leaves plenty of room for those who do. I have been a part of large, dry churches that people seemed to flock to, only to find out that few people indeed were flocking. Why? The preaching wasn't connecting with "Unchurched Harry and Mary".
If you want to see how a church impacts the local population, and beyond, read this book at least twice.

In a series of vignettes worth the price of the whole book, Bill & Lynne Hybels describe the activities that make up 'church' - a series of people caring for each other, reaching out to hurt, lonely and lost people, showing grace and love.

To read this book is to see the work of a Mighty God - a God who provides us with a vision that cannot be accomplished in our own power. It's only through the resources and power of God that something like Willow Creek can be created. Over and over again, you see the picture of the Hybels' trying to hang on, making decisions based on their understanding of what God is leading them to do, decisions that are echoing throughout the modern Church.

Were they all the "right" decision? Clearly not. Does everything Willow Creek stand for and propogate dovetail with my (and your) theology? Probably not. Is God at work in South Barrington?

Read the book.

I enjoyed learning about the Genesis of Willow Creek Community Church. Lynne and Bill put there thoughts together about the early days of the church and showed a wonderful picture of what God can do when he has people who will follow his will for their life. It was brutally honest and showed both sides of Christian ministry, the good and the not so good. In the end we see the tapestry that God has made and the end results are amazing to see.

Now one of my favorite books. The story is thrilling and inspiring to read. I really appreciated their honesty and how much there was to learn from their surprisingly huge and painful mistakes. Psyched me up for ministry and made me think deeply about how ministry should be done.

This is a book I have read borrowed therefore I now have my own copy. I also purchases one for a friend
One of his correspnding strengths, which can be seen in this book (co-authored by his wife, which apparently keeps him down to Earth), is to reveal an occasional weakness,or failure.
The failure he reveals in this book relates to his experience with motocross, which he used to do on the Willow Creek church property in Barrington, Illinois. He says in one part of the book that he once came down off a jump and had to be hospitalized due to bruising some internal organs.
We don't know if the bike was a real motocrosser, or what kind of equipment he may have been wearing. But it's a refreshing story which contrasts with the gleaming, hyper-expensive sport of Great Lakes sailboat racing with his irascible crew who must obey a code of silence during competition.
The book also chronicles the building of Willow Creek church. But since Willow Creek can be interpreted as an extension of a successful youth group, pay attention to the young guy crashing his dirt bike coming off a jump. There could be a little of us all in that.
