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.
