Crossway’s Trackback Thursday: Nine Marks of a Healthy Church

From Crossway:

What distinctively marks a really good church? Is it a large congregation? Plentiful parking? Engaging music?

Maybe you’ve read books on this topic before—but not like this one. First published in 2004, Nine Marks of a Healthy Church isn’t an instruction manual for church growth. It’s a pastor’s model for how to assess the health of your church using nine crucial qualities that are too often neglected.

Here’s a reminder of how the contest part of Trackback Thursday works:  Simply link to the blog post from your blog, leave a comment on Crossway’s Facebook Page, or re-tweet Trackback Thursday on Twitter @Crosswaybooks. There will be three winners picked on Friday morning.
