  1. It is a good book, but it starts breaking down in Chapters 10-12. They do the very thing they talk against in the first 9 chapters.

  2. Sounds like a good tip, I’ll read.

    Great reminder that churches are about ministering to people by people. There is still much to be said and done to bring our churches to a place where this actually and vitally happens. The Trellis and the Vine is a great kickstart, but we need to move forward with more insight from works such as Baxter’s, Reformed Pastor and Thomas Brook’s, Precious Remedies Against Satan’s Devices. Agree with Morris above if he is saying that you can’t quickly program those person-to-person meetings with a quick curriculum, but the strong sort of interpersonal ministry is, in most ways, the outworking of years of deep theological and personal growth.
