If you are part of a church struggling with vitality and viability, and wondering what options you have for continuing ministry, I am happy to announce that my book, “Toward the Better Country: Church Closure and Resurrection” is now available in print from Resource Publications/Wipf & Stock Publishers.
This has been a four year project for me and I am pleased to see it come to fruition. My book is not perfect, but hopefully it will generate discussion that helps us all move the church forward into a new era. I am happy that so many great stories shared with me can now be shared with others, and I encourage you to read it and let me know if it is helpful in your church.
For a brief synopsis of the book, click on the “About the Book” tab at the top of the page.
You can order the book now by clicking here , or at Amazon.com. The book will be available as a Kindle e-book within 3-6 months. Libraries and educators may be able to access the book through Ingram.
If you are part of a church or denominational group, and would like me to come and talk about the topic of church downsizing and closure, please leave a comment below and I will contact you.
