Why cell church? Is it because David Cho's church is a cell church and happens to be the largest church in the history of Christianity? Is it because cell church is the strategy that many "great" churches are using?
In the first section of this book, Comiskey establishes why the Bible is the only true foundation for small group ministry. He then looks at how the Trinity is our example for community. He covers the family in the Old Testament and how the most prominent image of the church is God's family. He then explore how Jesus called out a new family and utilized houses to establish this new family.
In section two, Comiskey explains why and how the early church met in homes and gathered those house churches together to celebrate. He discusses relational evangelism, and how leaders developed naturally through the house church strategy.
In the third section, the author applies the theology of the first two sections to the church today, attempting to give practical examples about how the New Testament Church can inform and instruct the 21st Century Church today.

Review 1 for Biblical Foundations for the Cell-Based Church: Developing Disciples Who Make Disciples
Ok. Some good material.
Date:December 18, 2012
According to the front cover (picture) of the book online, the sub-title is "Developing Disciples Who Make Disciples." I thought the book was going to have a lot of new information about discipleship. When I received the book, the sub-title was "New Testament Insights for the 21st Century." The book is still ok. It contains many biblical principles (which is a good thing obviously), however I do not agree with all of his exegesis and therefore conclusions. In my opinion his best work is "Myths and Truths of the Cells Church."
