About the Author:

Bob Jackson is an experience parish minister, trained economist and was a member of Springboard, the Archbishop of Canterbury's initiative to encourage, renew and mobilize the Church for evangelism. He is the author of Hope for the Church (CHP, 2002) and Road to Growth (CHP, 2005).

Review:

"This is a book to get you started on the road to growth. You may not like it all. You may not agree with it all. Your experience might be different. But this is a book you can't ignore. If you've ever been stuck on the hard shoulder, and sighed with relief to see the breakdown van arriving, then you'll have an idea of how helpful this book might be." - Stephen Cottrell, Bishop of Reading "If you want your church to grow there are few better places to start than this. It's based on thorough research, it's very readable, and it's well applied. Moreover, it's not prescriptive; rather it helps church members to tap their existing experience, while learning from other churches and, with God's help, discover their own church's road to growth". - John Coles, Director, New Wine
