Research shows that over time, most churches plateau and then eventually decline. Typically, they start strong and experience periods of growth, then stagnate and lose members. Since 1991, the North American population has increased by 15 percent while the number of "unchurched" people has increased by 92 percent. Large church houses that were filled in the 1950s and 60s now hold a fraction of their capacity. To counter this trend, authors Ed Stetzer and Mike Dodson surveyed 300 churches from across ten different denominations that recently achieved healthy evangelistic growth after a significant season of decline. What they have discovered is an exciting method of congregation reinvigoration that is shared in the new book entitled "Comeback Churches." Endorsements As a successful pastor, church planter, researcher, and advisor to thousands of churches, Ed Stetzer speaks from a wealth of experience with all kinds of churches. Now, in one volume, your church can benefit from his wisdom. This book is a winner Dr. Rick Warren, author of "The Purpose-Driven Life "and" The Purpose-Driven Church" First and foremost, it is biblical. Second, it is well researched. And third, it is immensely practical and applicable . . . this book should be in the hands of hundreds of thousands of pastors, staff, and church leaders. Simply stated, it is just that good. Thom S. Rainer, author of "Simple"" Church," president/CEO of Life Way Christian Resources Finally, a book of practical advice that is based on research. I have seen it both ways endless research with little advice, or, much advice with little facts. This book strikes the balance with perfection. Elmer Towns, Dean of Liberty University This is the most helpful, practical book on church revitalization I ve read this century. Leonard Sweet, Drew Theological School, George Fox University "Comeback Churches "is more than a pep talk. It s rooted in the right stuff to bring a congregation out of the dismal into the vital.
