Transforming Church – Shannon O’Dell

This book about Shannon O’Dell’s experience as a pastor in rural Arkansas has both ups and downs.  There is a ton of great insight about how to work towards change in an existing congregation.  But as you read the book it is hard not to get the sense that perhaps he hid his true intentions from many in the church.  It appears that he ran roughshod over many in the church and did not handle things in the most professional and best manner possible.  There is some good in the book; however it all comes with his constant ego-stroking.
