Book Review: AND - The Gathered and Scattered Church

I have been reading a book by Hugh Halter called AND. It deals with the balance we see in the New Testament for times when the church is called to be gathering together, and other times when it is commanded to decentralize and missionally scatter itself in the world like a farmer sowing seed. Laurence Baxter points out that AND discusses a question that is important for churches - what are the benefits of an attractional approach (draw people into the church to hear the gospel, find fellowship and build them up as disciples) versus a missional/incarnational approach (sending our people out into the lives of others directly to witness and grow as disciples). It has been a great read. You should give it a try!
