There is a unique and special power and testimony in not just a vibrant local church full of life, but an old historic one that had lost its way, was on life support, and into which God saw fit to breathe life once again. Biblical Church Revitalization calls us to an intentional commitment to church revitalization in the face of dying and divided churches.

I loved this book. Immensely practical and completely realistic. This should be a must read for all pastors and church planters when it comes to handling expectations of the ministry. Very, very good. Get on it.

Mez McConnell, Pastor, Niddrie Community Church and Ministry Director of 20Schemes

Some books are written from ivory towers. Biblical Church Revitalization is not one of them. Brian Croft writes about church revitalization as one who has labored in the trenches of this work for several years ... this book is a "must read" on the topic of revitalizing churches.

Timothy K. Beougher, Billy Graham Professor of Evangelism, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Louisville, Kentucky

... outlines a simple, biblical guide for church revitalization that can benefit pastors in churches of any size, and lessons from his personal journey augment a thoroughly biblical approach to the task of church revitalization.

Thom S. Rainer, President of LifeWay Christian Resources and author of Autopsy of a Deceased Church

... an inspirational, instructive and insightful volume on how to minister effectively to churches that are dying, stagnant or declining.

Harry L. Reeder, Senior Pastor and Teacher, Briarwood Presbyterian Church, Birmingham, Alabama

... Brian Croft takes you along on a compelling journey that saw the Lord take a dead church and breathe new life into it by means of a faithful, biblical ministry.

Jeff Robinson, Pastor, Christ Fellowship Church of Louisville, Kentucky and Senior Editor, The Gospel Coalition

This book is a gift to pastors and church leaders who are yearning to see God do a work of spiritual transformation in a dying church ... Read it prayerfully and humbly, put its precepts into practice, and see God do what He alone can do--give life to the dead!

Andrew Davis, Senior Pastor, First Baptist Church, Durham, North Carolina

... both biblical and balanced, practical and personal as Croft weaves together a rich blend of biblical exegesis and pastoral wisdom forged over many years of experience at the coal-face of ministry.

Edwin Ewart, Principal, The Irish Baptist College

If you only read one book on reclaiming dying churches, read this one. This is certain to become the definitive resource for rescuing dying churches in our generation.

Mark Clifton, Senior Director, Replant, North American Mission Board
