About "This Little Church Went to Market"

Gary Gilley examines the churches that have been most successful in recent years in terms of growth, financial wealth and prestige. He argues that these "market-driven" churches are built on empty human philosophy patched together with bits of truth.
- Koorong

With the spectacular successes of churches like Saddleback Community Church in Lake Forest, California, and Willow Creek Community Church in South Barrington, Illinois, churches all over the world are buying into the market-driven philosophy of church growth and expansion. But what price have these churches paid in order to fill their pews with scores of people? Is the market-driven phenomenon comparable to such historic movements as the Evangelical Revival? Or has the church lost its culture wars?
- Publisher

With many evangelical churches being subscribed to pragmatic rather than scriptural patterns for worship this book calls for the Church to return to its scriptural roots.

A worthwhile read
5 stars By Lisa, Jun 07 2013
This book made some brilliant points and helped me to put some of my congregation's current outreach tactics into perspective.  In Paul's day, the church was all about evangelism and welcoming new believers.  Gilley notes that Paul never compromised on the gospel for the sake of outreach.  This was just one of the many lessons that I got from this easy read.
