People are hungry to make a difference in their community, yet most don’t know where to start. In fact, “serving the least” is often one of the most neglected biblical mandates in the church.

Barefoot Church shows listeners how today’s church can be a catalyst for individual, collective, and social renewal in any context. Whether pastors or laypeople, listeners will discover practical ideas that end up being as much about the Gospel and personal transformation as they are about serving the poor. Here they will see how the organizational structure of the church can be created or redesigned for mission in any context.

Drawing from his own journey, Brandon Hatmaker proves to listeners that serving the least is not a trendy act of benevolence but a lifestyle of authentic community and spiritual transformation. As Hatmaker writes, “My hope is that God would open our eyes more and more to the needs of our community. And that we would see it as the church’s responsibility to lead the charge.”

    " A mostly easy read, but there were some parts in it that took a while to get through. It serves as part call to serve and part the reason why we should serve. A very good book. Highly recommended. It can help to possibly read Tangible Kingdom first, although it's not completely necessary. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lee | 1/3/2014

    " very similar content to most of the books in the exponential series, but it's still a great reminder of or a solid introduction to missional living. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Teri Lynne Underwood | 12/18/2013

    " One of the very best books I have read on what church can and should look like. I think I highlighted 2/3 of the book. A must read for church leadership ... and for the rest of us who are wondering how to serve like Christ. Be prepared though, this book will stomp on your toes! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brooke | 11/28/2013

    " great book about being the church with some ideas on how to actually put boots on the ground. "

    " FABULOUS! Needed greatly! "

    " Really enjoyed this book! Considering buying it so I can go back and highlight things that really stood out to me. Challenges me to consider what I need to be doing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gina | 4/20/2013

    " A challenging read. The author reminds us as followers of Jesus to DO, to ACT. Take your faith and be a light to the world around you. Show love and benevolence. This book gives some ideas and suggestions on how to do that in church as a group and individually. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brian | 10/11/2012

    " This book inspired my family and my church small group to serve the poor and marginalized more. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nirup Alphonse | 10/2/2012

    " Fantastic book. I applaud Brandon for writing such a heart felt message. This book has a great concept on the idea of the church and missional culture. I highly recommend that all Christians and church leaders read this book and be challenged by the truth in it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Stephanie | 6/5/2012

    " This is one of the best mission related books I've ever read. He perfectly combines real life story telling with relatable situations to loving all for Christ. "

    " This book is chewing it's way through my mind right now. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amanda Snow | 3/5/2012

    " So important for all church-goers to read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ellen | 1/4/2012

    " Every Christian should read this book as a reminder that we as a Church are here to be Christ's hands and feet in service to "the least of these". "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Luke Brown | 12/21/2011

    " Some chapters I really liked, and other chapters impressed me with what he had done in Austin, Texas, but didn't translate to what I could do. A passionate challenge for the church to make Gospel a verb, to put flesh on it and aggresively serve the needs of our communities. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shiffra | 11/18/2011

    " Amazing and super challenging and inspiring book. I can't say enough good about it. "
