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!

    Powerful book! In that book, every single reason a church had died fit my church to a "T". Everyone needs to read this book and then go and try to correct any of those problems that might be affecting their church.

    my church leaders began passing it around and asked me to order more copies.

    Now we are on the same page and understanding we are not alone in this need to change.

    great little book, well written, my teenager picked it up and read through it as it held her interest. My pastor husband is thinking of going through it with his overseer group as each chapter is fairly short and there are 3 really good questions for group discussion. I think it would work well for a Bible Study group as well. I recommend it highly as a resource for churches who are aware that they are not in build mode anymore which is most of us.

    I really understood the author's list of ways to keep your church alive and could clearly see where my own church stands according to the list. Good information for anyone who is concerned that their church is doing what God clearly wants us to do.

    Reading this book was like deja vu all over again! In a church I have experienced all that he wrote about. And many would rather die than change. I had one person say to me, "As long as the church is here when I die, that's all I care about. Whatever happens after that, I'm not interested!" With thinking like that, no wonder so many cases are terminal! I got this book for a Building, Mission and Vision Team to review and make comments....and see if they recognize something familiar in there. We are in the process of building a new church and have had countless delays over the last 9 years, including the death of a pastor to cancer. We are presently stepping up things to finish up the project and make the dream a reality. It still goes back to the old saying...."Physician, heal thyself!" The "book" in this case is still being written!
