"What makes this book so outstanding is that it is not just another book on theology and theory, but it is rooted in the process of making disciples."

"No matter what kind of church you are seeking to participate in or plant, The Tangible Kingdom will knock you out of your comfortable pew to follow the mission of Jesus to transform your community."
—Mark Driscoll

author, Confessions of a Reformission Rev. and The Radical Reformission

"Hugh Halter and Matt Smay are not just men of words but of actions. They have broken from the pack of theorizers, philosophers, and abstract theologians by diving into the deeper waters of experimentation, struggle, failure, and success. The results are sharper principles packed with punch because they have been refined in the fires of real life. Take confidence that what they teach will work."
—Neil Cole

church starter; director of Church Multiplication Associates; and author, Organic Church

    A reviewer

    Thanks to Hugh & Matt, who contributed to my weekend of sleep deprivation. The Tangible Kingdom was so good, I didn't want to put it down! As a lay-person, I highly recommend the book. It helped me process my personal frustrations of the Church in a healthier way, and look at how purposefully I¿m living among the ¿Sojourners¿ in my life. I¿m really glad that Hugh & Matt weren¿t foolhardy enough to give a ¿formula¿ on how to live in community '¿Follow these 5 easy steps¿¿'. Instead, they filled the book with stories of their conversations with ordinary people, whether at a bar, a coffee shop, in their neighborhood, and in the living room¿places that I hang out in too. That reinforces to me that ministry doesn¿t have to happen in a church and I don¿t have to be in vocational ministry to have an impact on people. I can do that wherever I am too. The middle chapters of the book were heavier, as Hugh went into different church models. It was interesting, but not as directly applicable as it would be to a church planter or leader. The book¿s also been ¿key¿ to me intentionally readjusting my lifestyle. Working in a young marketing firm in California, I¿m learning to see and love my coworkers differently. I¿m enjoying all the new conversations, getting to know them, and trusting that God is working mightily throughout it all. Excellent book, funny, and very impactful!
