One of the most important books on church planting for my generation has just been released by Crossway.  Church Planter: The Man, the Message, the Mission written by Darrin Patrick is a book not only for church planters but for anyone called to gospel ministry.  I will be explaining its importance and giving a lengthy review next week.  Over at PLNTD, I will review the book by sections: the Man (Monday), the Message (Wednesday), and the Mission (Friday), and we will be giving away copies of the book via Twitter.
