What he's saying make a lot of sense, especially in our American free enterprise culture.

However, his definition of a "cell group" is weak and he lumps all the various kinds of affinity groups in that definition.
Healthy cell groups are holistic, meaning they contain the lifestyle commanded in both the Great Commandment and Great Commission. They are also Christ-centered, and do not find their purpose in snowboarding or scrapbooking.
However, I firmly believe that what Haggard has written about in this book should be employed by holistic small group-based churches as a relationally evangelistic arm of each group in addition to a true, Christ-in-the-midst gathering of believers.
Man cannot live on interest groups (bread) alone.
Fr Greg Evans, Pastor of Church of the Good Shepherd in Chelsea, Alabama
To those of us who are contemplating using Free Market Small Groups, this book, if condensed, might offer one chapter on how to do it. Most of it is about how to present change to the congregation, etc. This is probably the only book out there on this subject, but I probably found more help on the Internet than I did here. Perhaps in other situations, this might be more useful.
