Straightforward, honest, practical! This book is a down-to-earth analysis of why so many churches are in decline—and what to do about it. Books like this, written by practitioners who have actually led churches to healthy growth, are far more significant than treatises by armchair experts who only criticize the church. If you are in a declining church, read this book and put its insights into practice. God wants your church to thrive, and tools like this will facilitate that process.

Reaching the Summit hits on all pistons. George has given us rock-solid understanding and action plans that flow from his lifelong journey into God’s Word, his years in local church ministry and consulting churches, and his passion for Christ’s bride. Even if your church isn’t in decline, you’ll want to read this book. It will keep you from arriving there.

George Yates has discerningly put his finger on the problems that contribute to the declining church. His perceptions are frighteningly accurate, and his solutions for reversing the trend are wonderfully astute. I commend Reaching the Summit to every pastor and church leader. Those who read this book and employ its principles will be able to stop the church’s hemorrhaging and set it on the path of good health and spiritual prosperity.
