Review:

"In this book Steve Addison demonstrates the desire of God from the biblical era until today. He casts a compelling future vision by tracing God's discernible lessons demonstrated in movements. Steve taps into the heart hunger of the growing number of us that want to see God do something great. Your heart will be stirred while you read Movements That Change the World. If you are like me, you will be prompted to stop and pray, 'Lord, do it again, for the sake of our communities and nations--for every man, woman and child!'" (Ed Stetzer, missiologist and author of Planting Missional Churches)

"Adaptive, innovative and consuming. Those words characterize the movements Steve Addison describes and prescribes in his book. They also depict the book--pick it up and it won't let go of you. I couldn't put it down till it finished rearranging my mind. This is a keeper!" (Ralph Moore, founding pastor of Hope Chapel Kaneohe Bay, Hawaii, and author of How to Multiply Your Church)

"This will be a valuable contribution to our growing understanding of church-planting movements and their history, scope and nature. . . . I will be recommending this to everyone I know." (David Garrison, missionary with the Southern Baptist International Mission Board and author of Church Planting Movements)

"An important book for our times--well researched, well written, and well thought out. Steve identifies the essential qualities that have defined movements of the Spirit throughout the ages. The stories he tells--biblical, historical, contemporary and personal--give us hope for fresh movements of God in our day." (Robert E. Logan, founder of CoachNet International Ministries and author of Be Fruitful and Multiply)

"Steve has been tantalizing me with tales of this book for years. He has talked to me about the content on numerous occasions. The chapters are distilled from years of experience and thought, and the final product has not disappointed. Practitioners and thinkers with a passion for mission will want to read and reread this book." (Martin Robinson, director of Together in Mission, UK, and coauthor of Metavista: Bible, Church and Mission in the Age of Imagination)

"There are very few who have truly studied, dissected and understood church multiplication movements at the core. My friend Steve Addison has done his homework. I have anticipated this work for some time and am pleased to report it is better than I ever expected. Steve has put in the years of research and synthesizes his vast amounts of experience, wisdom and research into an easy-to-read book." (Neil Cole, founder of Church Multiplication Associates and author of Organic Church)

"I love this book! Every so often a book comes along that fuels the flame that was started in my heart years ago when I was a young and on-fire world changer. I love reading this type of book. I'm still a fanatical, fiercely focused, imbalanced, apostolic type guy. I'm older now, but more fervent than ever. If you're looking for an intelligent and passionate book to stir you to dream big dreams of how a movement can begin through your life and that will give you practical tools to help implement those dreams, then read Movements That Change the World!" (Floyd McClung, founder/director of All Nations, South Africa, and author of You See Bones, I See an Army)
