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!

    Worth the read

    Though a pastor friend of ours wasn't in total agreement with what this book had to say, I couldn't find anything I disagreed with. Hopefully Dr. Rainer's book will save some churches that are heading down the path to closure and dissolution. Chapters are short, ending with a prayer and questions for the reader to reflect on. It's an easy read and well worth the brief time commitment, especially if your church could fit one of the scenario described in the book. It may even be some "preventative medicine"---to keep a church from starting down such a path.

    Short, concise, and insightful, this was just what our church needed to read. I bought the book for myself and thought so highly of it that I bought 10 copies to pass around to church members. After they read it, I kept hearing people say "we need to change", where before they didn't see the need. At the end of each chapter there are questions for thought and a prayerful commitment. This book is an easy read, but very applicable and thought provoking. I highly recommend it to anyone who is part of a struggling church!

    I believe this book will assist our small (average attendance 40) church to regain our position as a "light beside a busy highway" that we once were (average attendance 80). Well written and to the point. We begin a discussion time using this book next Sunday. Even if your church isn't struggling this book is worth reading and discussing with adult/youth groups. An easy read, short and direct.

    I learned a lot from this book about the symptoms of a church that is dying or has died. I definitely recommend this book to every church member. This book will enable us all to see the truth about our churches.
