Product Description

While Sample is not an evangelical, his creative sociological analysis will enable evangelical churches to develop effective strategies to reach people. He describes three groups: the cultural left of inner-directed baby boomers, the cultural right of traditional values, and the cultural middle of American dream fulfillers. The last chapter considers how churches can manage these diverse lifestyles in the same congregation, and suggests a theology appropriate to each. Paper from Westminster, 192 pages.
