The Spirit Of The Purple Cow
Full Product Description
James Galloway contends that a vital ingredient is missing from many churches - and this is robbing them of the potential for dynamic growth. No, it’s not the art of great leadership. Rather it is the art of great “followship”. A leader must model their vision and provide a good example to follow, but more important for health, growth and vitality is followers who really know how to follow.
Drawing from the biblical story of Jonathan and his armour bearer and the lessons learned from Breathe City Church’s explosive growth over a short period of time, James guides us through the essential characteristics of great followship and presents a completely different paradigm for church growth. What does all this have to do with Purple Cows??? Read to find out!
“James Galloway is creative, courageous and compassionate. The Spirit of the Purple Cow and what God is doing at and through Breathe City Church is compelling and challenging. Read it out of curiosity – the breadcrumbs you pick up have the potential of multiplying.” - CANON J. JOHN

The Spirit of the Purple CowMelanie Carroll, via The Good Book Stall
This is James Galloway's second book and in many ways it's a follow on from From Beach Hut to Palace, in as much as the first book described how his church in Stoke had been built up and purposed and why it's growing like it is and this book addresses the issues of 'followship' that is being a good follower which is in so many ways, according to the author, more important that being a good leader.
Good followers help make good leaders, because good followers are active and integral and purposed and they serve a purpose and are willing to do the job. Like his last book it's a fantastic blend of biblical principle and teaching - this time mainly based around 1 Samuel ch 14 and down to earth considerations of the modern world as we really live in it.
Using concepts such as business (the Purple Cow of the title being a nod to Seth Grodin and his Big Moo books), marketing, mobile phones and social media to drive his idea's home of how we can grow ourselves and our churches.
It's a good book for anyone interested in Church growth or for congregation members interested in getting their shine back.
