Reviews - What do our customers think?
GETTING THE FLY OUT OF THE OINTMENT  Apr 29, 2010
I spent 35 years as a management consultant. L. Russel Crabtree knows what he talking about. Our diocesan bishop recommended this to our diocesan council for reading and discussion.
 
Required Reading for Denominational Staff, Pastors, and Active Laypeople  Oct 5, 2009
Crabtree has created a text that should be required reading for denominational staff in every mainline church, as well as any pastors or laypeople who serve on judicatories, standing committees, or other governing bodies.

With adept reasoning, compelling data, and well-considered arguments, he delivers a vision for strategic re-orientation for the church on a regional level which is both practical and visionary. His charts and diagrams are well set off by anecdotes and examples. Chapters are short and include pithy and relevant questions for discussion. (Unlike the questions found in most texts of this kind, his will actually provoke interesting conversation.)

I had never heard of Crabtree prior to picking up this text but I will certainly be following him and recommending him based on this work. His leadership in creating it can best be honored by the leadership of others who actually enact the type of change he describes.

 
A must-get for modern church leaders  Apr 10, 2009
Church attendance has been falling in recent years. "The Fly in the Ointment: Why Denominations Aren't Helping Their Congregations . . . and How They Can" is a guide discussing church attendance, congregations, and denominations and how the three interact, outlining what churches must do to restore themselves to prominence in the community. Churches were once centers of a community, and author J. Russell Crabtree says that's something they must strive for again. "The Fly in the Ointment" is a must-get for modern church leaders.
