This is a book review I wrote about Chris Smith and John Pattison's Slow Church (IVP 2014). I liked the book a lot because it provides a refreshing alternative to church growth books that push quick growth through strategic programming in business world fashion. This book is more faithful to God's strategy for forming and growing communities that bear witness to his kingdom. It's not a quick read and it does not offer a quick fix, but we need a lot more books like this because it is, above all, truthful.
