When I began to read this book, after the first page, I thought to myself; OH my goodness, this book is talking about me. It has helped me to understand the need for the changes taking place in the churches today. I am 73 years old and I feel it should be required reading for all people my age. I shared the book with a friend and she thought it was so good that she purchased a book for herself to pass around our church. It is very easy reading. The author did an excellent job of writing an interesting book.
Well written and informative. I believe the demonstration of progress in the book is helpful to many of us "older" church members.I do feel like the title somehow convey's a sense of negativity that the content does not have. I actually bought it AFTER I had read it.
I have encountered the characters in this book in both of the churches I have served. It presents a nice narrative model for addressing change, but as importantly gives a message of hope to those congregations trying to bring the text into a new context.
