Church planters Tony and Felicity Dale and acclaimed researcher George Barna bring a big message to God?s church. How might we change the world if our Christian faith began multiplying at a rapid pace?through a way of life that is explosive and transformational? It happened once before, in the early days of the church; what will it take to bring us to that point of urgency and determination again? Small Is Big (originally published as The Rabbit and the Elephant) offers keys to 21st-century evangelism: leveraging the power of the small?and taking the gospel to where the people are and the pain is. And as God uses us to channel Jesus? love into a hurting, desperate world, we?ll see his church grow beyond anything we could have imagined.
Tony and Felicity Dale were trained as physicians at Barts Hospital in London, where they pioneered simple church concepts while in medical school and later in the East End of London. Now living in the United States, they are actively engaged in church planting. They founded House2House magazine and have authored several books, including Renewing the Mind, Simply Church,and the Getting Started manual on planting house churches. The Dales speak regularly at conferences throughout the world. They live in Austin, Texas and recently co-authored with George Barna The Rabbit and the Elephant: Why small is the big thing for the Church today.
