The generous use of personal anecdotes and minimal theological terminology is perfect for newer Christians or those with an aversion to technical or complex argumentation. Another factor that adds to the broad marketability of the book is its emphasis on the practical, not the theoretical.

Most of the chapters offer bullet points of sensible advice, clearly drawn from years in the trenches of pastoral ministry. An excellent example of this is chapter seven: These lessons are strategically universal and ready for immediate implementation. No Evangelism Explosion, Way of the Master or any other recent or antiquated evangelism technique is promoted or even mentioned. The other unexpected joy is the special sections or "grey areas" within each chapter.

These areas function to bring additional perspectives mainly from the Harney's boys or to elucidate important concepts such as the gospel, sin or forgiveness. In my opinion, these "grey areas" infused some much needed theological depth, which may give it more shelf life as a viable resource for the local church. I do have one criticism, though. The authors seem to have a subtle bent towards philosophical pragmatism.
This particular family member has a passion for music. Music touches her soul in a way that is deep and true to who she is, so over the years I gave her great Christian music. She was not yet a follower of Jesus, but she loved singing and connecting with the other choir members, and they lovingly welcomed her.
Innovation and risk-taking p. Conclusion Overall, I endorse this entertaining, well-written book. It made me look within myself and ask these questions, "Am I really about outreach in my neighborhood? For more of my book reviews, check out my blog. Oct 22, Dave Jenkins rated it really liked it Shelves: The traditional definition of marriage and family in our culture is under attack by those who wish to not only redefine what the family is but also what is socially and therefore culturally acceptable definition of the family.
Into this fray many writers in the past year or two have written books on marriage to try and help Christians to think through what the Bible teaches about marriage and the family.
Many of these books make helpful contributions but very few of them help us to think through The traditional definition of marriage and family in our culture is under attack by those who wish to not only redefine what the family is but also what is socially and therefore culturally acceptable definition of the family. Many of these books make helpful contributions but very few of them help us to think through what it means to be a family on mission and to reach our neighbors for Christ.
As a married man how I treat my wife, and the animals in my home is a reflection of what is really in my heart. I say with my mouth, and type with my fingers for others to hear and read that I love Jesus Christ. All is not well in the homes of many Christians throughout our country and our world because many can just walk through the motions but when the rubber meets the road and times get tough—those are the times that we run to what we truly love—ourselves or our Savior, Jesus Christ. This is not to say that the other books primarily focused on this point, because many make other contributions to the topic of the family that this book does not.
Where this book excels and offers a significant contribution is in the area of how we as Christians can by growing in the grace of God—advance the mission of God by first focusing on our growth in grace.

Oct 22, Amanda Penland rated it really liked it. This book is what every Christian family should strive for, turning our homes into lighthouses. It shows us how to share the love of Christ with not only our children but all those we come across. We are to shine our light for Christ and do all we can to show love for others. I pictured throughout the book a very content family.
One so perfect it honestly seems unreal. I agree with most of the book. But, some things I didn't like. For example saying more yes than no to our children. I am a mom of This book is what every Christian family should strive for, turning our homes into lighthouses. I am a mom of 5 kids ages yrs. If I said yes to more and no less like the authors suggest I would be broke and my kids wouldn't learn.
Things like patience, the value of money, and more. There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later. There are quite few books about outreach and many of them after reading leave one with a feeling of inadequacy. It's not a case with this book. This book is rather a book with ideas and guidelines not a recipes book that tell how to deal with any situation because as the authors say "every lighthouse home will look a bit different. Kevin and Sherry share their own experience which assures that they know what they talk about. Their ideas are simple and easy taken by anyone.
This has been one of the most helpful books I have read about how ti share and live Christ like life in and through family. I would encourage anyone who live in a community and has children to read this book. Most helpful customer reviews on Amazon. This book highlighted the needed for raising up your kids the way that they carry the light of Jesus Christ to their communities. Parents who are lukewarm about living for God can't expect their kids to shine brightly for Jesus. My home has not been a lighthouse. It's been more of a self-serving environment, as each of us do our own entertaining thing.
Reading Organic Outreach has left me wanting more for my family. As Christians, it should be each of our desire to grow closer to God and share His great love with others. How did I forget that in the midst of day to day living? I'm determined to reconnect with God, be real and honest with my kids in how I live, and show them through God's Word how to live a life that is joyful and meaningful.
The authors share their experiences and their own now-grown sons' testimony of how their parents' leading and commitment helped them become the committed Christians they are today. It really has a lot that I would love to implement in my own home. I've been falling for Satan's deception and discouragement regarding my home and the lack of spiritual habits.
However, I see that I can change things in my home, because with God all things are possible. I received this book from BookSneeze in exchange for my honest review. I have three young daughters, so training them up in God's Word and helping them be the light of Christ to their friends and in their schools is often on my mind.
