I highly recommend it for all who care about small churches, from the cutting edge of scholarship to practical procedures in the trenches."
--CARLS. DUDLEY, Center for Church Ministries (Chicago); author of MAKING THE SMALL CHURCH EFFECTIVE

"This may well be the definitive text of this decade on religious education in small membership churches. It provides a realistic lens, many practical suggestions, and a new vision of hope and promise for religious education in small churches. This book is one to be read now and to be kept in readiness as a valuable resource for the future."
--WARREN J. HARTMAN, General Board of the United Methodist Church; author of LARGE MEMBERSHIP CHURCH

--ANTHONY G. PAPPAS, First Baptist Church of Block Island; author of MONEY, MOTIVATION, AND MISSION IN THE SMALL CHURCH

"This book is an invitation to step back, to think about, and to act."
