Reviews - What do our customers think?
Sure to Become a Primer  Jul 8, 2008
This book stands out from others, including Wolfgang Simson's formidable "Houses That Change the World", because it is based on actual research. J.D. Payne is not so much a "cheerleader" for a preferred way of doing church as he is a reporter who bases his observations on where the data leads him. And where it leads him is to the conclusion that the missional house church phenomenon is accomplishing things that the more traditional church cannot afford to ignore.

As someone who has read a fair amount of the available material on the subject, I find Payne's book among the more valuable and will certainly use it as a primer for training house church leaders within my own circle of influence.

Missional House Churches -- Readable and Important !  Apr 9, 2008
In his book Missional House Churches, Dr. JD Payne has done us a great service by providing the first scholarly, yet highly readable, analysis of its kind regarding North American house churches that are actually experiencing growth and expansion. What factors have directly or indirectly contributed to their evangelistic impulse and church planting success? What challenges do the leaders of these Christian colonies face, internally and externally? What demographic patterns are evident in these faith communities? What practices and beliefs do they hold dear? What questions still need answering as this phenomenon emerges onto the landscape? Apart from some sections in which the author ventures into the land of "critique", rather than sticking to pure description and analysis of his subject, this is a highly balanced effort from an able scholar. Anyone planting house churches in the West will be challenged by this important work to sharpen their skills and to become more missional.
