We live in a society that worships at the shrine of size. In the world's eyes if something is not big, it does not deserve attention. With such a cultural bias it is not easy to be upbeat about a church with just a few in the congregation.
John Benton has written this sensitive and practical work out of a heartfelt concern for the many small groups of God's people who meet regularly and faithfully as a church, but who may sometimes feel weak or isolated. Highlighting the fact that it is the health of a church, not its size, that is important, he encourages small congregations (and large ones, too ) and shows how the few and seemingly powerless have been used by God throughout the history of the church. These little churches might just be the seeds from which God may yet give a mighty harvest, for his glory.
