Foundational
5 stars By Life, Jun 15 2016
Easily one of the best books I have ever read on this topic. The author is proponent of home groups, and makes a compelling biblical case for it in today's world. There is no condemnation aimed at big church and the attendance style congregations that colour what the average modern Christian experience looks like - rather it's a gentle treatment and re-establishment of lost principles, purposes and practices of the fellowship and missional setting of the early church.
