The Millennium Matrix (Leadership Network Series): Reclaiming the Past, Reframing the Future of the Church
M. Rex Miller
0787962678
July 2004
Hardcover
·
 
Review
This ambitious, Protestant-oriented manual for church growth sweeps across two thousand years of Western cultural evolution.  Miller, an active Christian church leader, businessman, and theologian, relates concepts of oral, print, broadcast, and digital communications to Christian spirituality, tracing these trends and their influence on evangelism since the time of Christ.  In a nonacademic manner, similar to Jim Collin’s in Good to Great and other recent best sellers, Miller seeks to make the modern church more relevant to America’s online culture.  His presentation is slick, but it will appeal to busy lay leaders who seek a quick read and a few ideas to recharge apathetic congregations.  Easy-to-grasp charts provide useful summaries of the text.  Footnotes are extensive and helpful. ...

Review
Books-On-Line : The project I'm working on right now in the hundred year old house I bought is refinishing some hardwood floors. So first I turned to the index to see what they said about doing that task. It was there. The description was rather short, but exactly what I needed to know.

I then turned to how to install a toilet, yup, it was there too. So was wiring, framing walls, building a stair way, roofing, venting gas appliances, and there's a section on solar heating systems. In short, I couldn't find anything about building a house that wasn't covered (except for finding the money to cover the cost). If you're going to build a house, or have one built, I can't recommend any book higher than this one.
