Sunday School That Really Excels is the third book in the series written by Dr. Steve Parr and is a must read for the Sunday School leader or pastor that desires to see their Sunday School and Small Groups thrive. It is a book of real life examples of churches from across North America with thriving Sunday Schools. David Francis makes this observation about the book:
What makes this book different is that it is not just a book of principles. It is a book of stories. Stories are powerful. These are real stories about real churches in real places with real leaders who face real circumstances and overcome real challenges. For what? To gather people—people with stories—together to learn, discuss, and apply God’s Story to their stories!
The stories are told by the leading voices for Sunday School in the country including Steve Parr, Josh Hunt, David Francis, Tim S. Smith, Ben Pritchett, J.D. “Sonny” Tucker, Bob Mayfield, Sam Galloway, Gary Jennings, Elmer Towns, Leroy Gainey, and Ken Coley. In addition, Allan Taylor provides the Foreword and Thom Rainer addresses the state of Sunday School today. This is a book you will not want to miss. Read the book and you will take a tour across the country to see what other churches have done in all types of circumstances to lead their Sunday Schools to Excel!
