Product Description

No one wants to see a church die. And yet, far too many churches are dying. For more than twenty-five years, Dr. Thom Rainer has helped churches grow, reverse the trends of decline, and has autopsied those that have died. From this experience, he has discovered twelve consistent themes among those churches that have died. Yet, it's not gloom and doom because from those twelve themes, lessons on how to keep your church alive have emerged.

Whether your church is vibrant or dying, whether you are a pastor or a church member, Autopsy of a Deceased Church will walk you through the radical paths necessary to keep your church alive to the glory of God and advancement of Christ's Kingdom!

    Great book for churches!

    This was a wonderful book that explains why many churches are struggling to stay afloat. Even though alot of what is explained in the book is common sense with a person with a spiritual eye to see, many church officials and members often ignore the facts that are printed in this book as if there are in "Lala land" while people's souls are at stake. This is a must have book for every church member around the world.

    Thought Provoking

    This book would prove insightful to people who have always been in the same church, community, or even job. We need to see our situations with fresh eyes, retaining the fruitful functions of an organization and being willing to change those things that have kept us in a rut. (a grave with both ends kicked out) If the fire has gone out of a church or ministry it likely isn't because people are teaching/preaching an alive Word of God and trusting the leadership of Holy Spirt. Many times the comfort zone or pleasing people has become the focus for the life of the organization rather than furtherance of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. While not every church or ministry will have the same challenges, the examples shared in this book will promote thought provoking investigation of the direction their entity is going.

    Having just left a dying church, I found the book to be interesting. I did not agree with all the author's points, but the book was thought-provoking.
