Overview

Many people believe in Jesus Christ but want nothing to do with the church. Some others who call themselves committed Christians will not commit to a local church. We have to be honest. There is a spiritual dearth in the church in many countries.

At times the church has been sick and the illness seemed to be terminal; yet it survives and in many places grows phenomenally.

Dry Bones can live, addresses this problem and proposes a dynamic remedy; setting out a strategy for local churches to consider. With stories from the pastor's casebook, it illustrates the reality and effectiveness of the Gospel in transforming lives. The text offers practical guidance for leaders and the whole church drawn from over forty years in ministry. Its emphasis in making, growing and keeping disciples is a must for the church in the 21st century.
