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!

Pastor Walt5 Stars Out Of 5Help your dying churchMarch 15, 2017Pastor WaltQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5When I first read this little book, I was struck at the valuable information given. 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.

This is going on a lot more often in churches, then Christians want to admit. Time to wake up, trust the Lord's leading and get out and think outside of the pew or box.
Jeff5 Stars Out Of 5Wake up!December 1, 2016JeffQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Fairly short easy read, but really packs a wallop. It is either a wake up call to do what you can to resuscitate your church if there's any hope left or the "bad news" that your church is gasping on its death bed. The happy oblivious depicted who sit in your dying church week after week never seeing the decline is an especially startling thing you will recognize as you read. If you have a sneaking suspicion that your church may be in decline, read before it's too late.
