Church planting involves laying foundations. The quality of these foundations has profound implications for what can be built on them. Strong and secure foundations provide the basis for healthy churches and effective mission. Effective church planting, according to Paul, requires the grace of God, appropriate expertise, and considerable care.

This book is not a training manual. It is for practitioners rather than theorists. It contains many questions and considers various answers. Church Planting lays some theological foundations for church planting and invites church planters to think seriously about missiology and ecclesiology.

"Too often books on church planting focus on the ‘how,’ with little attention to the ‘why’ and the ‘what.’ Stuart Murray, on the other hand, contextualizes church planting within a theology of the mission of God and the kingdom of God. He is to be commended for looking at church planting in a post-Christendom context." —Lois Barrett, Commission on Home Ministries, General Conference Mennonite Church

"Stuart Murray's book offers timely help. Unlike many church planting books and manuals, this book does not focus on 'how-tos." Rather, by focusing on deeper concerns, Murray asks what may be the far more pressing question: 'What kinds of churches need planting in our time and situation?' . . . This book is substantial, practical help for church planters and those who support new church initiatives."

--Restoration Quarterly

"This book will stimulate your thinking on numerous issues related to church planting. Use it to expand your understanding and your perspectives."

--Evangelical Missions Quarterly
