In 2001 the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) conducted the U.S. Congregational Life Survey. More than 1.2 million worshipers and 12,000 congregations across three continents were surveyed to provide a portrait of congregational life. The findings were published in the first edition of A Field Guide to U.S. Congregations.
With the completion of the 2008 survey comes an expanded edition of this invaluable reference with new findings; updated statistics, tables, and cartoons; a new chapter describing changes in congregational life; and chapter summaries focusing on the implications of the 2008 survey.
"This is an easily read book, one that is filled with statistics and interpretations of data, but there are also charts and even cartoons. Taken together this book gives us a sense of what is happening in the church today, and therefore, Woolever and Bruce have done an excellent job providing us with a field guide that church people, including its leaders, will find useful."--Robert D. Cornwall, Sharing the Practice, Vol. 33/2, Summer 2010, p. 20
