People often ask me for recommendations of church planting books so I’ve decided to keep a list on hand. This list, although not exactly exhaustive does represent the vast majority of what’s in print on the subject today. I have not personally read all of these books, nor do I have plans to so please don’t view the entire list as a recommendation. The books that I have actually read are colored in red with my recommendation notated on a scale of 1-10. (1 being not recommended, 10 being highly Recommended) The books are listed in no particular order. If you know of a church planting book on the list please let me know.
