Overview

Comiskey’s thesis is that reproduction or church multiplication is critical to all effective church planting. Thus, church planting must be simple enough to keep the process going.

The first section lays out the Biblical basis for church planting. The book moves from the Biblical basis to the contemporary scene, showing why church planting is absolutely essential to keep up with the population growth. Comiskey also highlights the characteristics which make a modern day church planter successful. Comiskey draws from practical experiences to help those who are in the battle or are considering church planting.

The second section goes into detail about church planting strategies, namely the cell church strategy and house church planting. The reader is not just given information about different church planting approaches but is also shown how to use them.

Comiskey’s book is a must-read book for those interested in establishing Christ-honoring, multiplying churches.

Editorial Reviews

Alan Hirsch
Here is a thoroughly practical, encouraging and thoughtful contribution to the small but growing body of literature on multiplication movements. This is an important book not only because it involves a return to a more genuinely biblical ecclesiology but also because it envisions the much more dynamic form of church that will advance the cause of Jesus in the 21st Century
Bob Roberts
Joel Comiskey does a great job in his book of explaining what a simple church is and how to plant them. He provides solid theology, numerous examples and strategic steps for planting simple churches. We will use it with our planters as a resource. I’ve read a lot of books on simple, cell, house churches defending them or promoting them - I don’t think I’ve read anything as clear and as concise as this or as practical to get them started as this
Sweet Leonard
There is an old saying, `Better late than never, but best never late.' Where has this book been? How different might the church be today if Comiskey's invaluable resource had been available even ten years ago? Don't discover Comiskey ten years from now and exclaim, `Where have I been!' The book we've needed and been waiting for is here now. Tag, you're it.
Tom Jones
Joel Comiskey is a veteran church planter. His new book “Planting Churches that Reproduce” is biblical, practical and inspirational. If indeed church planters are going to get serious about evangelistic reproducing movements that start new testament churches then we must take a long and creative look at Simple churches or some variation of the house church movement. The typical suburban church planting model will not get the job done alone
Wagner Peter
Joel Comiskey’s lifelong passion for multiplying churches does not allow him to get stuck in the past. I love this excellent book because it is a book for the future. Joel’s blueprint will help many find their proper position for enriching their life and for extending the kingdom of God
