Book Review: Going Deep By Gordon MacDonald

Going Deep: Becoming A Person of Influence
By Gordon MacDonald

I ordered Going Deep: Becoming A Person of Influence back in January and admittedly it has taken me this long to read it, not because it was a bad book but because it's been a very stressful year.  It was very much a book written for pastors and church leaders.  Too many churches are content with reaching people where they and then letting them stay there.  My pastor has says, "God loves you where you are, but He loves you too much to leave you there."  This book is the story of a pastor that wanted to take his church deeper.  He had a passion for seeing lives changed and had a vision to train up leaders to do that.  What do you think churches in America would look like if they are started living like they really believe what they are teaching?

* Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from the publisher through the BookSneeze®.com book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
