Publisher's Description

As millions of church members fall into inactivity each year, they've probably also started skipping church on Sunday.  

We need answers—not statistics. We need to understand and hear from people who are leaving church so we can find a way to turn around the trend.

This book uses in-depth sociological research to get to the heart of the issue. The data is collected from interviews with real people about why they left and who they really are. These aren’t the "nones" who have no religious affiliation. They’re the "dones" who’ve been faithfully serving in local churches for years. This is their story.

Author Bio

Josh Packard is a professor of sociology at the University of Northern Colorado and the well-published author of numerous academic articles, reviews, and the book, The Emerging Church. He’s also an active church member and has a deep desire to understand the widespread phenomenon of church decline.

Ashleigh Hope is the process of gaining her Ph.D. in Sociology at Vanderbilt University where she researches topics in the areas of religion, community, and health. She is currently a member of a  church in Nashville, and is interested in
the various religious and life perspectives that exist in- and outside of the modern congregation.

    This book is packed full of information and contains real concern for the American Church at large. I have run into so many people that define "the dones" As a lay minister and being in leadership for many years I understand the concerns and reasons. Until reading this book I just couldn't put what I was experiencing in the churches a reality. The church at large, and we as individuals need to be able to minister and love those we are called to. to ignore the problem will not make it go away. I am encouraged to be more Christ Like and in more community with the world than to be a part of a coprorate run machine called Pastor whomever's church. Please read and Pray. It will bless you and make you rethink how you are doing church.
