There is a saying, "good things come in small packages" and I believe that this book is one of those good things. Whether you have been attending the same church for 1 month or 30 years, no one wants to admit that their church has a problem.
The author address several problems that can cause a church to die. Some you may be aware of, some you may not. Maybe you see the beginning of a problem but where unsure what to do or who to talk to. This book not only give you what to look for, but he also offers a few solutions on how to combat the problem.
For me, most of the text I was already aware of, but there were a few points that were new for me.
Even if you believe that there could not be anything you could learn, I would encourage you to read this book with an open mind, you never know what God is waiting to reveal to you.
The best chapter for me, was the one on prayer, both corporate and individual.
The book is the size of gift book with 101 pages of actual text, it's not a long or difficult read. This is a book not only for Pastors & deacons and church board member, but for the people in the pews.

I am using it with the church board of a struggling church in my community and the officers are excited about getting help for them to grow. Even members not on the board are reading it and getting excited. Now it has spread from our little church to other churches in the area. Raines really make us think about what is going on in our congregation.
