“An Army of Ordinary People” is an inspirational novel aimed at believers and nonbelievers. This is a collection of true stories about everyday people who practice “simple church” in their lives, homes, neighborhoods and workplaces.

A church is not to be referred to as a building, but is meant for you to share your faith with others. Simple men and women have started their own churches in their homes, coffee shops, colleges, hospitals, retirement homes and even prisons. Some have even started dozens of churches at one time.

I was hesitant about reading this book, afraid that it would preach too much. After reading the first story, that all changed. There was no preaching in it. The stories are heartwarming and inspirational. You don’t have to have a degree in theology or religion to start your own church. All you need is your faith in God.

Note: I would like to thank Tyndale House for sending me this complimentary copy to review.
