Here's Tyndale House Publisher's version of what the book is about:
Rabbits, Elephants and Simple Church
If you put two elephants in a room together with plenty of food and
water, close the door, and come back in three years, if you’re
lucky, you may have one baby elephant. But do the same thing with
two rabbits and you’ll get thousands of baby rabbits.
In their new book, The Rabbit and the Elephant: Why Small is the
New Big for Today’s Church, simple church planters Tony and
Felicity Dale, with acclaimed researcher George Barna, use the
rabbit illustration to show the pace at which the Christian faith
can (and should) be growing—through a way of life that is explosive
and transformational. Through observations supported by the Barna
Group research, the Dales document how church all across the world
is changing from being event-based to life and
The Rabbit and the Elephant explores the simple church phenomenon
and the ideas and experiences behind its concept of every member
ministry. You will learn how to incorporate spiritual growth and
outreach into every aspect of your life, while discovering the key
to 21st century evangelism.
