Books I have read so far on my Church Planting Training

Here is a list of books I have read and reviewed since I started my Church Planting Training roughly 9 months ago:
  1. Rediscovering Church by Lynn and Bill Hybels
  2. The Multiplying Church by Bob Roberts
  3. Planting New Churches in a Postmodern Age by Ed Stetzer
  4. Planting Growing Churches for the 21st Century: A Comprehensive Guide for New Churches and Those Desiring Renewal by Aubrey Malphurs
  5. Breaking The Missional Code by Ed Stetzer & David Putman
  6. Staff Your Church for Growth by Gary L. McIntosh
  7. The Reason for God by Timothy Keller
  8. Church Planting the Next Generation by Kevin Mannoia (review coming soon)
  9. Activate: An Entirely New Approach to Small Groups by Nelson Searcy (review coming soon)
I'm also reading a church planting manual and have read sections from several books for my theological and theme studies. I am currently reading Simply Strategic Volunteers: Empowering People For Ministry by Tony Morgan and Tim Stevens (review coming soon).

They are all good but if I had to pick one, in terms of church planting, I'd pick Planting New Churches in a Postmodern Age by Ed Stetzer. It's comprehensive in that it covers theological and practical aspects of church planting.
