Review 1 for And: The Gathered and Scattered Church
AND helps define a path to authentic community and mission no matter where you currently worship. By building on the strengths of attractional churches, rather than casting them as irrelevant or worse, a barrier, the authors give a vision to the millions who want to be missional but not at the sake of their church homes and friends.

Review 2 for And: The Gathered and Scattered Church
This book deals with the gather church AND the scattered church meaning a churches that come together for worship and the church that goes into all the world to preach the gospel to everyone. This book is also about how a church, no matter what size it is, needs to move away from the attractional-missional divide that has many church leaders divided as to what a church needs to be. One of my favorite chapters in the book is the chapter on being a consumerless church. This chapter really deals with how people in the church has become all about them. People jump for church to church because it is not what they want. I love this quote, "As leaders in his church, we must get back to the Main Thing and call ourselves and our people to Christ, the one who calls us to stop consuming and start bearing fruit for the kingdom of God" (Page 78).
