Jason and Kay have compiled a work that lifts up the best for our churches in favor of church vitality but are also honest about the challenges and pitfalls. This is what we as the church need in this moment, a consideration of cooperative parishes as one way to achieve church vitality. Every church needs to read this book because all churches need to become more vital.
