Churches (Zondervan), Thom S. Rainer and his research team examined
more than 50,000 churches in the U.S. to identify those characteristics that
help a church “breakout” and make the leap from good to great. The project was
inspired by the best-selling business book Good to Great by Jim Collins.
They identify and discuss 13 churches that made that leap without resorting
to a change of leadership. This fascinating book talks about the commitments
and characteristics it takes to help a church “breakout” to greatness.
