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.
"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 LifeWay 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 Ive read this century." Leonard Sweet, Drew Theological School, George Fox University
"Comeback Churches is more than a pep talk. Its rooted in the right stuff to bring a congregation out of the dismal into the vital." Jack W. Hayford, President, International Foursquare Churches, Chancellor, The Kings College and Seminary
"No one, to my knowledge, has done the hard research, presented the facts, and offered such sound advice as Ed Stetzer and Mike Dodson… Comeback Churches is the number-one book on turning around declining and plateauing church ministry. Gary L. McIntosh, D.Min., Ph.D., Biola University
"A refreshing book by authors who know how to make research exciting and instructional. Leaders and members of non-growing evangelical churches should read this book (it wouldn't hurt mainliners either)!" Bill Easum, Easum, Bandy & Associates
