Outreach and Church Growth

Eric Metaxas is a Christian speaker, author and contributor to the Christian Post.  His biography on Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy won the 2010 Evangelical Christian Publishers Association 2010 Book of the Year (along with other awards).  His 2007 biography of British abolitionist William Wilberforce, Amazing Grace: William Wilberforce and the Heroic Campaign to End Slavery, was very well received and no doubt would be helpful in the current U.S. debate about racism.  He recently wrote a piece for the Christian Post that would be good for Christians of all stripes to read.  The title lays out the theme of the article: Your Unchurched Neighbors Are Not Unreachable.
