Schwarz, Christian A. "Chapter 5: The Tools." Color Your World with Natural Church Development: Experiencing all that God has designed you to be. St. Charles, IL: Church Smart Resources, 2005, 147-165.
Schwarz maintains that there are "internal tools" we all have for growth, but that we often lack the natural ability to identify and use them. Therefore, he provides "external tools" intended to assist the process (Schwarz 2005, 147). These tools are his NCD book series, which he quickly reminds the reader are used in many countries and languages (Schwarz 2005, 150). His survey product is another tool, with the interpretive service. Schwarz advertizes this on pp. 152-154. His organization is also developing a discipleship manual based on each of the eight quality characteristics. He describes these on pp. 155-157. The final advertisements in this chapter are for his national partner coaching network (Schwarz 2005, 158-159), his international organization (Schwarz 2005, 160-161), the websites (Schwarz 2005, 162-163), and the implementation of an NCD campaign (Schwarz 2005, 164-165). The language in this chapter is increasingly that of a commercial for his products.
