This book was a very insightful and interesting read. I couldn't put it down. What struck me the most was Dr. Kennedy's passion for soul winning. He made it a way of life, a regular part of his language, and then trained others to do and live the same. Every Pastor should read this book and see what principles they could bring into their own congregations.
