Book Review: Who Moved My Pulput? by Thom Rainer
In his latest book, Who Moved My Pulpit?, Thom Rainer how leaders in the church can have effective change. He begins the book about a pastor who decided to take a pulpit, which was a huge one, in favor of a smaller pulpit that the preacher did not feel was a hindrance. He did not consult anyone. He just moved it and it caused a major conflict in the church. He used that situation how not to make changes in the church.
He goes to address how change in the church should be brought about and how a pastor should approach in making changes. Thankfully, one thing Rainer did not say was make changes now and fast. Changes in the church can be really difficult. Rainer addresses five kinds of people in the church who will make change difficult as well as how to handle people who do not want to see changes in their church.
Who will benefit from this book? Obviously pastor will along with elders and deacons. I think this book should be a guide for anyone in ministry to make necessary changes in their congregation. Change in the church will always be met with opposition and I think this book will give church leaders the tools they need to make change happen.
Thanks B&H Publishing Group for letting me review this book.
